Imaginary, a new horror film from director Jeff Wadlow and Blumhouse Productions, has been given a 2024 release date
A few months ago, we heard that director Jeff Wadlow and Blumhouse Productions – who had previously collaborated on the 2018 film Truth or Dare and the 2020 horror version of Fantasy Island – were teaming up for a new horror project called Imaginary, and Lionsgate has acquired the worldwide rights to the film. Now Lionsgate has announced that they will be giving Imaginary a theatrical release on February 2, 2024.
Wadlow has written the screenplay for Imaginary with Greg Erb, Jason Oremland, and Bryce McGuire, crafting a story that sounds like a horror take on the 1991 comedy Drop Dead Fred: A young woman returns to her childhood home only to discover that the imaginary friend she left behind is very real and very unhappy she left.
Lionsgate and Blumhouse are co-financing the project. Lionsgate and Blumhouse previously worked together on the 2012 release Sinister. Wadlow is producing the film alongside Blumhouse founder Jason Blum.
When we first heard about Imaginary, it was said that the filmmakers were aiming to get it into production in the spring and that Wadlow was working on assembling the cast. The names of the actors have not been revealed yet, and it is unclear if filming started.
Aside from Truth Or Dare and Fantasy Island Wadlow also directed Cry_Wolf and Never Back Down, Kick Ass 2, True Memory of an International Assassin The Curse of Bridge Hollow as well as episodes of television shows like R Share your thoughts on Imaginary
by leaving a comment below.As I have said before, Wadlow’s movies have been hit and miss for me. Some I enjoyed more, and others I did not. So Imaginary
is a “wait and see” project for me. I am curious to see how the imaginary friend will be portrayed because there are many different approaches to this idea.
