Dimension Films’ ‘Backwater’ Prepping Summer Release?

When Variety announced the film Backwater (more here) back in October, who knew they’d be pushing to release this sucker this soon? Although nothing official has been announced, Kong dropped me an email to this link, which claims that Jim Gillespie’s (I Know What You Did Last Summer) horror flick will be shooting for release this summer (now August 26th). Backwater, which stars Agnes Bruckner, Method Man, Bijou Phillips, Jonathan Jackson and Meagan Good, is a voodoo horror tale set deep in the swamps of Louisiana centered around a group of teenagers fighting for their lives against a mysterious evil force.
