Sony has made a handful of release date changes and announcements tonight, one of which is for a mysterious horror movie that doesn’t yet have an official title announced.
“Untitled True Haunting Movie” will release from Sony’s Screen Gems on January 6, 2023, presumably a supernatural horror movie that’s based on true events.
Additionally, Sony’s follow-up to the “Screenlife” thriller Searching, which is titled Missing, has received a date. It’ll be released by Sony on February 24, 2023.
Storm Reid and Nia Long star in Missing, with the cast also including Joaquim de Almeida, Ken Leung, Amy Landecker, Daniel Henney, Megan Suri and Tim Griffin.
Will Merrick & Nick Johnson will direct for Sony’s Stage 6 Films. Merrick and Johnson, the site’s report notes, were part of the editorial team on the first movie.
The film will “tell a different story from the original,” with Merrick and Johnson also writing the script based on a story by Sev Ohanian and Aneesh Chaganty.
Deadline adds, “Searching 2‘s plot is still under wraps, but it will feature a new set of characters and an evolved Screenlife thriller format where the story plays out on the screens of the characters’ devices. The original starred John Cho as a dad who breaks into his daughter’s computer when she goes missing, in a desperate attempt to track her down.”
