Last month we reported that Shamoon Abbasi, who has helmed the suspense-thriller, Durj, became the member of Societe Des Realisateurs De Films (The Society of Film Directors) and that he will attend the opening ceremony of Directors’ Fortnight, where the film will be screened.
Durj is again making headlines it seems. Recently, Abbasi took to social media and announced that Durj will be releasing internationally [in selected countries] in October 2019.
“The wait is over! Durj releases globally on the 11th of October 2019. Experience #Durj in cinemas across multiple regions of the US, UK, Canada, UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Qatar. See you at the cinemas,” he wrote on his official Facebook page.
The actor and director also thanked everyone for all their love and support and shared the official global poster of the upcoming film.
Based on real life stories and events, Durj, explores the untapped genre of cannibalism. According to Abbasi, the suspense-thriller highlights a historical criminal act that has occurred numerous times all around the world and after thorough research on incidents that took place in Pakistan they turned it into a suspense film.
Durj features Shamoon Abbasi, Sherry Shah, Myra Khan, Nouman Javaid and Majid Khan (Dodi) in key roles. Both Abbasi and Shah have undergone major transformation to achieve a certain look for the film, major parts of which have been shot in deserts, caves and mountains.
While a release date has been announced for overseas viewers, we wonder when Durj will hit cinemas across Pakistan.
