The modern-day take on Frankenstein will now hit theaters Feb. 20, instead of Jan. 30. Mark Duplass and Olivia Wilde star in Lazarus, about a group of medical students who figure out a way to bring dead patients back to life.
Insiders say Lionsgate was going to have to move the film because of its crowded slate, but that Blum’s company, Blumhouse, still wanted an early 2015 release date. All sides agreed the best move was to go with Relativity, according to sources. Lionsgate continues to handle Lazarus internationally.
Lazarus marks the second time Blum and Relativity have worked together after the microbudgeted Oculus, which grossed an impressive $27.7 million domestically and $40.6 million worldwide.
David Gelb directed Lazarus from a script by Luke Dawson and Jeremy Slater.
Blum — who is currently in theaters with Ouija and Whiplash — produced the movie with Matt Kaplan and Jimmy Miller.
