I’m still not exactly sure what Jinn is but, since Freestyle Releasing just picked it up, I’ll be able to figure out on the big screen! The film, from from Detroit-based Exxodus Pictures is described as a tension filled supernatural thriller. Written and directed by Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad it stars Ray Park (pictured above; Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace), Faran Tahir (Iron Man, Star Trek), William Atherton (Die Hard, Ghostbusters), Serinda Swan (A & E’s “Breakout Kings”), and Dominic Rains (Flight 93). Richard Mandell, Najam Syed and Shahid Syed executive produced the film for Exxodus.
“The story of Jinn involves ancient mythological creatures who have never been seen in U.S. cinemas before. The premise of the jinn concept, known to over 1 billion people around the world, involves supernatural entities and revolves around creation mythology: In the beginning, three were created; man made of clay; angels made of light; and a third…made of fire. They are powerful due to their existence in a parallel world, and also because they have free will and can be both good and evil.” Oh so that’s what it’s about! So simple!
A release date for the film will be announced in the forthcoming weeks.
