Time cut was written by Kennedy alongside Soto Patel during the lockdown. The movie was kept a secret until Kennedy took to Twitter in May to announce that filming was to start. He also announced the leads in the same post. Everything else about the production is still pretty much a mystery right now. We do know that Kennedy and Patel have taken the plunge back into the waters of Young Adult Slashers. Hannah Macpherson, known for Into the Dark and Trinkets will be the director for Time Cut.
Where to Watch Time Cut?
Time Cut will release in theatres on June 9th. We don’t have any information about the OTT release plan yet, but with Macpherson directing it could come out on either Hulu or Netflix.
A Little About the Movie
Time Cut is a blend of horror, comedy and the nightmares of being a teenager. If you take Freaky as your example, then we sure are in for an absolute splendour of a time. There’s not much known about the story since most of it was written by just the two writers during the lockdown and hasn’t had a proper plot release.
The only description we have for the movie is “Back to the Future meets Scream”. If this is any indication then we will have the comedy of Back to the Future along with obviously a time-based plot in some form and horror like Scream. With Hannah Macpherson’s experience directing horror, what with Into the Dark and Trinkets being so good, we’ve been given the best in the business to run the show. Though not much is known right now about the story we do know that it will have something to do with altering time and its many consequences, especially as a teenager. It cannot be the best idea to give a teenager any control over time nor is it a good idea to control time. You put the two together and now we have a recipe for either disaster or a merry adventure.
Madison Baily and Antonia Gentry are to be the stars of the film. The other actors include Griffin Gluck and Sidney Sabiston. The movie will also reunite the creative team behind the comedy “Freaky”. With such a wealth of experience in the horror and comedy genres, and with most of them working to unite the two genres there’s great potential here.
The movie is jointly produced by ABC Entertainment, the company behind To All the Boys and Chris Landon, the writer and director of Happy Death Day and Freaky. Michael Kennedy is very excited for the world to see the film. In his words, he thinks the audience will go “bonkers”. It’s usually a great sign when the writer is so enthusiastic about something he’s working on. If he’s confident enough to announce to the audience that they’ll be mind blown, then why not give it a shot and watch the movie? It seems to have a great team and the story should be interesting given they got Macpherson to direct it. If you get the chance do not pass it up.
