Universal will release Amblin Entertainment’s The House With A Clock In Its Walls on September 21, 2018.
Jack Black and Cate Blanchett star in the magical adventure that centres on 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead.
Eli Roth directs the adaptation written by Supernatural’s Eric Kripke based on John Bellairs children’s book. Kyle MacLachlan, Colleen Camp, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams and Sunny Suljic also star in film produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Brad Fischer and James Vanderbilt, as well as Kripke.
William Sherak, Tracey Nyberg and Laeta Kalogridis serve as executive producers.
The new release dates pits The House With A Clock In Its Walls against Sony’s haunted family comedy Goosebumps 2, as well as Lionsgate’s Robin Hood.
