STX Thriller ‘Bye Bye Man’ Moved Up for June Release

STX has moved the release of its horror-thriller “Bye Bye Man” forward four months from Oct. 14 to June 3.

Carrie-Anne Moss, Faye Dunaway, Douglas Smith, Cressida Bonas, Lucien Laviscount and Douglas Jones are starring. Stacy Title directed from Jonathan Penner’s script from the short story “The Bridge to Body Island” by Robert Damon Schneck

Producers are Trevor Macy, Jeffrey Soros and Simon Horsman.

The film recounts a series of terrifying events experienced by three Wisconsin college students, played by Smith, Bonas and Laviscount, who move into an old house off campus and unwittingly unleash a supernatural entity known as the Bye Bye Man — who comes to prey upon them once they discover his name. The friends must try to save each other, all the while keeping the Bye Bye Man’s existence a secret to save others from the same deadly fate.

Two-year-old STX is opening “Hardcore Henry” on April 8 and Matthew McConaughey’s Civil War drama “Free State of Jones” on June 24.

“Bye Bye Man” is the fourth title to land on the date along with Universal’s comedy “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping,” Paramount’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” and Warner’s romance “Me Before You.”
