Having a handful of notable names behind a film doesn’t mean it’s going to see the light of day. Look at what happened with Cabin in the Woods and Red Dawn. Granted, there were bigger studio issue with those films that prevented them from being seen by moviegoers. But even once all the kinks were worked out, executives were still timid about releasing them in theaters. In the case of Red Dawn I can clearly see why; Josh Peck gave probably the worst performance I saw in a film last year but that’s the subject for an entirely different article. Despite having a four time Oscar nominated actress in the form of Julianne Moore and a talented young Hollywood actor coming off a successful run with The Tudors which Jonathan Rhys Meyers was nominated twice for at the Globes, the film Shelter still collected dust on the shelf. Now it looks to be given new life under the title 6 Souls and will finally make its way to theaters in a few months. The first trailer for the film has been released and is mostly a mixed bag. I’m hoping that Michael Cooney delivers a riveting screenplay in the same vein as his prevous underrated thriller Identity. Cult fans should also note that Cooney is responsible for the highly entertaining Christmas romp Jack Frost. Directed by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein (the guys behind Underworld: Awakening), 6 Souls will available on VOD starting March 1st and in theaters on April 5. Check out the trailer below.
