Lionsgate’s ‘Possession’ Bumped to August 2012

The Sam Raimi Ghost House Pictures-produced Dibbuk Box is prepping for release under the title Possession and will now arrive much later than anticipated.

Deep into post-production via Lionsgate, the Ole Bornedal-directed horror starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport, Natasha Calis will arrive in theaters August 31, 2012, a far cry from the original January 6 date.

Morgan will star as a recently divorced father whose youngest daughter becomes strangely connected to an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. As his daughter’s behavior becomes more erratic, the father senses a dark presence building until he discovers that the box was built to contain a dibbuk — a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.
