Set for release on June 12, the film is a collaboration between Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures and Jordan Peele and Win Rosenfeld's Monkeypaw Productions.
Peele and Rosenfeld wrote the movie, and Nia DaCosta is directing it.
The original movie was based on a Clive Barker tale that followed a graduate student researching an urban legend about a 19th century lynching victim who returns to slay people who call his name five times while standing in front of a mirror.
