Horror thriller "Drag Me to Hell" will mark the return of "Spider-Man" series director, Sam Raimi, to his movie genre roots and for quite some time, this project doesn't have exact date for its theatrical release. But, Universal Pictures have brought a great news with the announcement of the movie release date.
On Thursday, July 3, the studio let out that they have set "Drag" to be outed next summer on May 29, 2009 in theaters across the country. Occupying the last weekend in the month of May, the PG-13 horror movie has been given the same time frame as Bryan Bertino's successful suspense thriller "The Strangers" which shows Universal's confidence in it.
Centering its story on an ambitious L.A. loan officer, Christine Brown, "Drag" follows Christine's effort to break out from the evil curse cast upon her after she rejects a request for a home loan extension. Originally set to be starred by "Juno" own Ellen Page, the flick has to settle with Alison Lohman as Page dropped her involvement earlier. It is also supported by Justin Long, Jessica Lucas and David Paymer.
