According to Variety, Lionsgate and CBS Films have moved up Helen Mirren’s haunted house movie by three weeks to Feb. 2 and retitled the film, which had been “Winchester,” as “Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built.” Mirren stars as firearms heiress Sarah Winchester along with Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook, and Angus Sampson. Siblings Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig are directing from their own script. Producers are Tim McGahan and Brett Tomberlin. Winchester was convinced that she was haunted by the souls killed at the hands of the Winchester Repeating Rifle. After the sudden deaths of her husband and child, she threw herself into the 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week construction of an enormous mansion designed to keep the evil spirits at bay. Construction at the Winchester mansion in San Jose, Calif., went on continuously from 1884 to 1922 as the original farm house grew into the world’s most unusual labyrinth-mansion (24,000 square feet built at a cost of $5 million), featuring 160 rooms; 2,000 doors; 10,000 windows; nine kitchens; 13 bathrooms; and 47 stairways and fireplaces. “Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built” will open two days before Super Bowl LII against Paramount’s Cloverfield movie.
