One of Netflix’s most anticipated projects of the year has finally found its new release date. After The Devil All The Time had been set to premiere in May 2020, producers and executives pushed it back, potentially for reasons related to COVID-19 and to have more pull in the extremely different award season for 2020/21. Now, the movie, which boasts an incredible number of Hollywood talent, has announced its release date on September 16.
The movie is based on the book of the same title by Donald Ray Pollock and tells the story of a rural Ohio town in the 1960s, where residents deal with the aftermath of World War II and the looming Vietnam War in their own ways. Described as having “bizarre” characters, this movie will show everything from traumatized veterans to broken families, as well as a series of murders.
Starring in the film will be Marvel stars Tom Holland (playing Arvin Russell, an orphan living with his grandparents) and Sebastian Stan (playing Lee Bodecker), as well as Robert Pattinson (playing Preston Teagardin), Bill Skarsgård, Harry Melling, and, among others, Haley Bennett. The Devil All The Time was written and by Antonio Campos (who has worked on The Punisher, Homemade, and The Sinner) and produced by Jake Gyllenhaal.
The release date on September 16 is set to be the same date globally. Stayed tuned for the first trailer!
