Universal is spending little time scheduling another horror title from James Wan’s Atomic Monster and Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Pictures. The original his horror film ‘Nightswim’ starring Wyatt Russell (‘Overlord’) and Kelly Condon (‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’) is set to hit theaters January 19, 2024 .
This picture is based on the 2014 short film by Bryce McGuire and Rod Blackhurst and centers on “The Source of Terror Hidden in the Iconic Backyard Pool.” Both filmmakers will co-write and co-direct the feature film adaptation, with Wan and Blum serving as producers.

The film will be executive produced by Michael Clear and Judson Scott on One’s Atomic Monster and Ryan Turek on Blum’s Blumhouse. “Night Swim” shares a release date with Paramount’s animated adventure “Tiger’s Apprentice” featuring the voices of Michelle Yeoh, Henry Golding, Bowen Yang and Leah Lewis.
“M3GAN”, which just hit the big success of “M3GAN”, earned about $46 million worldwide in its first weekend and is a highly acclaimed and talked about horror movie with a budget of $12 million. We’ve flagged an important release date in early 2024. “Night Swim” was positioned a year ago as another horror property with event-scale potential, boasting a simple yet primitive high concept and a marquee producer.
Wyatt Russell recently played a less-than-ideal version of Captain America in Disney+’s Falcon and the Winter Soldier, eventually renamed US Agent. Condon, meanwhile, is making awards season headlines for his supporting role in “Inisherin.”
