Warner Bros.’ Orphan Moves into the Summer


From the director of House of Wax

Warner Bros. and its genre production outfit believe The Orphan has summer legs. The studio announced it has shifted the thriller from a November release to July 24, 2009.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (House of Wax), the films stars Peter Sarsgaard and Vera Farmiga as a grieving couple who adopt a young girl (Isabelle Fuhrman) and get more than they bargained for.

This new release date puts Orphan up against no specific genre competition yet, however, the family flick G-Force, with Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz, opens that day.
