AngelDavid Boreanaz - Wicked Prayer Update II
Sunday 18 January 2004
We have a follow up to our news last week in regard to Wicked Prayer. First off, let us repeat that according to the production staff of the film, it is going to be a theatrical release. The reports of a direct to video release was either information based on what happened with Salvation, or just a guess by the Dimension rep that reported it.
We were contacted today by a frequent visitor of our site, Azrael, who had some news to back up the claims of the Wicked Prayer production staff that the film is indeed scheduled to hit theaters. Azrael’s girlfriend works at a local theater. Her boss is a huge fan of The Crow. When Azrael informed him of the news we reported last week, the theater manager contacted his local regional manager to get confirmation. According to the regional manager, they were under the impression that Wicked Prayer was still intended to be a theatrically released film. The regional manager, to make sure, contacted Dimension Films. He was told by Dimension that the film is indeed scheduled for a theatrical release and for us to look for it hitting theaters late summer/early fall.
This is great news and confirms what we have been told by the production staff. I made a comment last week that no film franchise has gone direct to video and then back to theatrical release. Actually, there has been a franchise that did this, and did it recently. Universal Soldier started out with a theatrical release. Then the second film went directly to TV/video. The third film returned to theaters a few years back, with Van Damme and Goldberg starring. So this goes to prove that film franchises can return to the theater after going direct to video. All indications are that this will happen with the Crow franchise. Keep checking our news for the latest on this.
