Below is the press release:
“SOMETHING WICKED” STARRING SHANTEL VANSANTEN, BRITTANY MURPHY, TO HIT THEATERS IN PORTLAND METRO BEGINNING APRIL 11
Pacific Northwest Regal Cinemas Sees First Rollout Of Psychological Thriller
April 8, 2014 – Portland, OR – The long-awaited final film of the late actress Brittany Murphy will hit theaters in Portland, Salem, and Bend beginning April 11, 2014, with more than 15 additional regional Regal Cinema theaters to follow weekly. A nationwide expansion will occur shortly thereafter.
“Something Wicked” is rated R and debuted in the Regal Cinemas in Eugene, Oregon on April 4, performing extremely well with the third highest gross per screen totals, only out-grossed by much bigger budget films Captain America and Under the Skin.
Shot at 29 locations throughout the Southern Willamette Valley, the film completed production in late 2009 but was delayed in post-production due to the tragic and sudden passing of Murphy. In addition to Murphy’s performance as Susan, the moral center of the film, “Something Wicked” stars Shantel VanSanten (“Gang Related,” “One Tree Hill,” “Final Destination”), Portland native and Gus Van Sant favorite John Robinson (upcoming Peter Bogdanovich movie, “Big Sur,” “Elephant,” “Lords of Dogtown”), Julian Morris (“Once Upon a Time,” “Pretty Little Liars,” “Valkyrie”), and James Patrick Stuart (“Supernatural,” “Hot in Cleveland”).
A suspenseful and seductive psychological thriller about obsession and young love gone wrong, “Something Wicked” is a Merchant Films production, directed by Darin Scott, written and produced by Joe Colleran. Merchant Films produces major motion pictures filmed in Oregon, using Pacific Northwest crews, actors, and locations, and is committed to bringing national focus and revenue into Oregon’s burgeoning film industry.
“Something Wicked” promises movie-goers a fun and exhilarating edge-of-seat viewing experience, full of thrilling twists, and fans of Brittany Murphy will surely leave the theater impressed by her haunting and memorable final performance.
