The Turning is the latest film to find its inspiration from the novella The Turn of the Screw. This film fan has still not read this classic, despite its influences. Now, this latest interpretation will focus on a mysterious estate, in a Maine countryside. Here, a nanny is put in charge of two very special orphans. As well, Italian director Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways) has helmed this feature, with Carey and Chad Hayes adapting the screenplay. The film itself stars: Mackenzie Davis ("Black Mirror"), Finn Wolfhard (It, 2017), Brooklynn Prince, Mark Huberman, Barbara Marten and Niall Greig Fulton. Now, a trailer and poster are available for this supernatural infused feature.

The Turning has been rated PG-13. Though difficult to create challenging horror with a PG-13 rating, The Turning relies on strange imagery to bring the scares. The PG-13 rating is for: terror, violence, disturbing images and suggestive content. So, blood and gore will be minimized in favour of more ghostly imagery.

Developed by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment and Vertigo, this title will show in theatres next January. Universal Pictures is handling the theatrical release, which takes place this January 24th (in the U.S.). Distributor Entertainment One will handle the film's Canadian release. All of the details on this modern take of Henry James' earlier work are below.

Release Date: January 24th, 2020 (Theatrical).

Director: Floria Sigismondi.

Writers: Carey W. Hayes (as Carey Hayes), Chad Hayes.

Cast: Mackenzie Davis, Finn Wolfhard, Brooklynn Prince.
