Jon Stewart’s ROSEWATER Release Date Set for November 7th; James Wan-Produced DEMONIC Finally Dated for December 12th

A Rosewater release date has finally been set, and it’s in the heart of awards season later this fall.  Jon Stewart’s highly anticipated directorial debut will open in select theaters on November 7th, the same date as Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.  However, Open Road Films will likely take good care of rolling the film out slowly over the course of the month, so no one’s expecting it to give Interstellar a run for its money.  Written and directed by Stewart, the film stars Gael Garcia Bernal and is an adaptation of BBC journalist Maziar Bahari‘s memoir, Then They Came for Me.  Bahari, who was born in Tehran, went to Iran in 2009 to interview Mir-Hossein Moussavi, but was arrested by the Revolutionary Guard, and then interrogated and beaten for 118 days by a man known only as “Rosewater”.  Stewart had a personal connection to the story as Bahari’s previous The Daily Show appearance was used as “evidence” that he was a spy.

Rosewater is slated to screen at the Toronto International Film Festival in September where I’m eager to finally see it, but it will likely have its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival one week prior.  Hit the jump for news concerning a slightly delayed horror film called Demonic.

Additionally, Dimension Films has announced that it will release the supernatural thriller Demonic on December 12th of this year.  Produced by The Conjuring and Insidious director James Wan, the film stars Maria Bello and Frank Grillo and revolves around the aftermath of a horrific massacre where five college students were brutally murdered inside an abandoned home.  Bello and Grillo play a psychologist and a detective, respectively, who question the survivors about the events.

Wan produced the film alongside Lee Clay (Beautiful Boy), while Will Canon (Brotherhood) directed based on an original idea from Wan.  Dimension will release the film wide opposite Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings.
