Originally set to premiere this August, 20th Century has re-scheduled the premiere of the horror-thriller Barbarian. The new release date is now set for September 9, 2022.
In the film, a young woman (Georgina Campbell) traveling to Detroit for a job interview books a rental home. But when she arrives late at night, she discovers that the house is double-booked, and a strange man (Bill Skarsgård) is already staying there. Against her better judgment, she decides to spend the evening but soon discovers that there’s a lot more to fear than just an unexpected house guest.
Written and directed by Zach Cregger (Wrecked) the film also stars Justin Long, Matthew Patrick Davis, Richard Brake, Jaymes Butler, and Kurt Braunohler.
Skarsgård reteams with IT: Chapter One and Chapter Two‘s producer Roy Lee, who is behind movies like The Grudge and the upcoming Salem’s Lot reboot, for Barbarian. Boulderlight’s Raphael Margules and J.D. Lifshitz also produce with Arnon Milchan. Natalie Lehmann, Michael Schaefer, Danny Chan, Alex Lebovici, and Bill Skarsgård are executive producing.
