It will roll out on more than 300 screens on Nov. 9 as part of After Dark Horrorfest, a commercial festival that runs through Nov. 18. Exhib partners include AMC, Regal and Cinemark.

Lansdale’s suspense novel “Cold in July” for “Mulberry” helmer Jim Mickle to direct and adapt with “Mulberry” co-writer Nick Damici.
