David Hewlett Movie 'Splice' Releases June 4

Fangoria has announced that Splice, a movie in which Stargate star David Hewlett appears, will be ready for its release to theaters on June 4.

The film was shown at this year’s Sitges and Sundance film festivals, and according to director Vincenzo Natali in his interview with the magazine, it needed to go through some changes before its release to broaden its appeal. Additionally, distributor Warner Bros. had some alterations in mind as well. So, they’re in the process of editing. Natali explained, “You’re going to see a slightly nipped-and-tucked version. I’m actually going into the editing room next week, and if they’re true to their word, it’s just going to be cosmetic. It really comes down to Joel [Silver of Dark Castle]. He loves the movie and actually enjoys the parts that would scare most producers away. He’s being very courageous releasing this. There are also a few things I’m changing after seeing the film with an audience. I believe what will come out of it will be a new and improved cut, but in essence, it’ll be the same film.”

This is the film’s description from Dread Central: “Splice starring Adrien Brody, Sarah Polley, Delphine Chaneac, David Hewlett, and Brandon McGibbon, tells the tale of Elsa and Clive, two young rebellious scientists who defy legal and ethical boundaries and forge ahead with a dangerous experiment: splicing together human and animal DNA to create a new organism. Named Dren, the creature rapidly develops from a deformed female infant into a beautiful but dangerous winged human-chimera, who forges a bond with both of her creators – only to have that bond turn deadly.”
