Filmmaker James Wan (Aquaman; The Conjuring; Insidious; Saw) has revealed that his new movie Malignant, a giallo-inspired “hard-R thriller” with “old school, practical effects” has wrapped principal filming.

Co-written with actress Ingrid Bisu (The Nun) – the pair got engaged together in June – the New Line-Atomic Monster production was shot in Los Angeles, a recipient of the Independent California Film Rebate.

Wan previously commented: “I’m super excited to go back to my indie roots with this hard-R thriller. An original horror idea (not a reboot/remake or anything based on existing IP) with old school, practical effects and no giant, blue screen sets. That’s all I’ll say for now.”

The cast includes Annabelle Wallis (above in Annabelle; also in Annabelle: Creation and The Mummy), Maddie Hasson, Jake Abel, Jacqueline McKenzie, Michole Briana White, George Young and Paul Mabon.

Malignant was independently financed through Starlight Media and Midas Innovation, who will retain distribution rights in China. Once post-production on Malignant is completed, Wan will move onto pre-production on Aquaman 2. The movie will be released on August 14th, 2020.


The movie previously rumoured to be called Silvercup.
