‘Stranger Calls’ Gets a Date and ‘Night Watch’ Loses One

According to Film Jerk, Sony Screen Gems’ When a Stranger Calls has been given an official release date of February 3rd, 2006. Jake Wade Wall (The Hitcher remake) is writing the script for Simon West to direct. Film Jerk also reports that Fox Searchlight’s first part in the Russian trilogy, Night Watch (review), has been pulled from it’s July release slate, without a new date given. The movie focuses on the titular band of superhuman “Others” devoted to protecting the world from dark forces, and an ancient prophecy of a violent war between the two sides that threatens to come true in modern-day Moscow.
