Director Kurt Wimmer‘s new take on Stephen King‘s horror novel Children of the Corn has been acquired for release by RLJE Films and Shudder, with the companies recently announcing that the film will first hit theaters on March 3 for an 18-day theatrical run.

The new movie will then arrive on demand and digital on March 21. Today, the trailer has debuted. The new movie is the eleventh overall installment in the franchise, and once it’s actually released it’ll be the first movie since John Gulager’s Children of the Corn: Runaway in 2018.

In Wimmer’s movie, which is said to have very little to do with King’s novel, “Possessed by a spirit in a dying cornfield, a twelve-year-old girl in Nebraska recruits the other children in her small town to go on a bloody rampage and kill all the adults and anyone else who opposes her. A bright high schooler who won’t go along with the plan is the town’s only hope of survival.”

The new film’s cast includes Elena Kampouris (Before I Fall), Kate Moyer (“When Hope Calls”), Callan Mulvey (Avengers: Endgame), and Bruce Spence (The Road Warrior). Kurt Wimmer, for those who don’t recognize his name, is the director of films including the Christian Bale-starring Equilibrium and the Milla Jovovich-starring Ultraviolet.

Children of the Corn is his first movie since 2006, though he did more recently write films including Law Abiding Citizen, Salt, Total Recall, and Point Break, as well as the 2020 horror movie Spell.
