‘Polaroid’ No Longer Being Developed at Netflix

Jan 11, 2019

Lars Klevberg’s horror title ‘Polaroid’ is still caught in a crossfire. The film is in limbo due to The Weinstein Company’s collapse from the allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

Four months ago, it was reported that Netflix was developing a deal to get the film. Netflix was aiming for a 2019 release, and it was stressed that the paperwork wasn’t completely signed and would take time. Then, two months ago there were reports that the film’s financier could attempt to block the release. Meanwhile, there is an Amazon release allegedly set for tomorrow in Germany. Now, Bloody Disgusting has reported that the Netflix deal is no longer happening.

Originally, The Weinstein Company dated this film for a Thanksgiving launch last year on October 4. However, the day before was when the New York Times expose ran on Harvey Weinstein. Theatrical marketing materials and posters were already made for Polaroid before the expose. By October 31, TWC had pulled the film off the schedule indefinitely.
