Wicked Prayer Update
Wingsburntblack, a member of the Crow forum Crowcoll, is a manager of a local theater. Their boss contacted Dimension Films recently about possibly ordering some teaser posters for Wicked Prayer. Wing’s manager was told by the Dimension rep that there were no theatrical teaser poster to be had because the film is going to be a direct to video/DVD release.
After learning of this, we contacted our sources from the film to confirm this decision. They were not aware that this decision had been made, if indeed it has been made. Our source said the film has not yet been delivered to Dimension (as we have reported here before). For the folks at Dimension to make this decision without seeing the film is highly unlikely. They feel perhaps this Dimension rep was basing their information on Salvation having been a direct to video release, not from having inside information from those in charge of making this decision. We have asked Wings to do some follow up. Whatever they can find out, we will be sure to pass on.
As we have reported before, everyone involved with the Wicked Prayer production have been given nothing but encouraging signs from Dimension in regard to it being a theatrical release. I have personally been cautiously optimistic about this since there are no film franchises that I know of which have gone to video releases and then gone back to theatrical releases. I trust my sources are confident in their feeling Dimension still plans on a theatrical release, we will just have to see what time tells us. It is a point to remember, last time around, Dimension’s decision to go direct to video was not communicated to the production staff until late in the game.
Those that were around for Salvation know how much of a tennis match that was in regard to information on theatrical vs. direct to video release. It seemed like for a while there every day a new decision was made. We are going to continue to follow up on this and will do our best to give you the most current information we have.
Thanks to Wings for the update and look forward to hearing from you again.
