STX Entertainment’s “The Bye Bye Man” has been moved again to Dec. 9, one month after the company announced the film would be moved up to the summer.
Originally slated for an October release of this year, it then moved up to June 3 for a summer release, but now is being moved back to Dec. 9, when no other films are slated for release.
Now, “The Bye Bye Man” will no longer open against “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and “Me Before You.”
Starring Carrie-Anne Moss, Faye Dunaway, Douglas Smith and Cressida Bonas, the horror-thriller is directed by Stacy Title and follows three college students who move into a house of campus only to discover a supernatural entity called the Bye Bye Man. They must save each other while keeping the entity’s existence a secret from others.
Jonathan Penner adapted the script from the short story “The Bridge to Body Island” by Robert Damon Schneck. Trevor Macy, Jeffrey Soros and Simon Horsman are producing.
