Russell Crowe’s road rage thriller Unhinged pulled from release schedule


At one point, UNHINGED was set to be the first movie to debut in U.S. theaters earlier this month, but COVID-19 obviously had different plans. After several revamps to the old one’s release date, UNHINGED was slated to hit theaters on July 31, but it looks like Solstice Studios has now removed UNHINGED from their slate entirely. A new date should be shared before too long, with Deadline suggesting the studio is considering a date in August, but Solstice is waiting to see what Warner Bros. made with TENET by Christopher Nolan.

UNHINGED is described as a psychological thriller that takes something we’ve all been through – road rage – to an unpredictable and terrifying conclusion. Rachel (Caren Pistorious) is late for work when an altercation at a red light with a stranger (Russell Crowe) makes her a target of her need to teach her and everyone she loves a deadly lesson. In an interview with JoBlo, Crowe said he had already decided he didn’t want to play a character so full of rage and with so little charm and humanity, but after meeting director Derrick Borte, he started to accept the challenge of the role.

The official synopsis for UNHINGED:

Unhinged is a topical psychological thriller that explores the fragile balance of a society taken to extremes, leading something we’ve all experienced – road rage – to an unpredictable and terrifying conclusion. Rachel (Caren Pistorius) is late for work when she has an altercation at a traffic light with a stranger (Russell Crowe) whose life has left her helpless and invisible. Soon Rachel finds herself and everyone she loves the target of a man who decides to make one last mark on the world by teaching her a series of deadly lessons. What follows is a dangerous cat and mouse game that proves you never know how close you are to someone who is about to get bothered.
