Relativity Media has set Mark Tonderai’s thriller House at the End of the Street for February 3, 2012. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence as a teenager who moves into a new home with her mother (Elisabeth Shue), but then discovers that their home is next door to the site of a double murder. She makes friends with the massacre’s sole survivor (Max Thieriot). If it turns out he was the person responsible for the double murder, I’ll be very disappointed.
The only other film currently set for release on February 3, 2012 is Fox’s superhero drama Chronicle starring Dane DeHaan. Presumably, the film will try to build off all the publicity Lawrence will be receiving in the lead-up to her starring role in The Hunger Games, which opens less than two months later. [Update: We’ve added the press release from Relativity after the jump.]
