SONY PICTURES CLASSICS SETS NEW RELEASE DATE FOR EDSON ODA’S NINE DAYS

Sony Pictures Entertainment - 12/03/2020

NEW YORK (December 3, 2020) – Sony Pictures Classics announced today that they will now release Edson Oda's NINE DAYS in theaters next summer. Similar to their theatrical rollout of THE RIDER, NINE DAYS, which stars Winston Duke, Zazie Beetz, Benedict Wong, Bill Skarsgård, Tony Hale, David Rysdahl, and Arianna Ortiz, will first qualify for this year’s Film Independent’s Spirit Awards.

NINE DAYS follows a reclusive man, Will (Duke), who is conducting a series of interviews with human souls for a chance to be born. Five contenders emerge, and during the course of nine days, Will tests each of them, but he can choose only one. The victor will be rewarded with a coveted opportunity to become a newborn in the real world, while the others will cease to exist.

"NINE DAYS is about celebrating life and human connection and I'm thrilled that audiences will also be able to have that experience in the movie theater next summer,” said Filmmaker Edson Oda.

Sony Pictures Classics added, “NINE DAYS is an important movie that was always meant to be seen on the big screen first, so (we decided) to move the date back to a time when we hope more theaters are open safely and people are more comfortable returning to theaters.”

The film is a co-production between Juniper Productions, Mandalay Pictures, Nowhere, MACRO Media and The Space Program, in association with Mansa Productions, Oak Street Pictures, 30WEST, Baked Studios and Datari Turner Productions. The project is produced by Jason Michael Berman of Mandalay Pictures, Mette-Marie Kongsved and Laura Tunstall of Nowhere, Matthew Linder of Juniper Productions and Datari Turner. Executive producers are Charles D. King, Kim Roth, Gus Deardoff, Kellon Akeem, Spike Jonze, Yandy Smith, Renée Frigo, Beth Hubbard, Trevor Groth, Winston Duke, Caroline Connor, Will Raynor, Mark C. Stevens, Mark G. Mathis, Kwesi Collisson, Larry Weinberg, George A. Loucas, Michelle Craig and Piero Frescobaldi. Warner Classics will release the film’s soundtrack with Antonio Pinto (CITY OF GOD, SENNA).
