The movie is based on the true story of Indiana woman Latoya Ammons, who along with her three children said they were possessed by demons leading to a case involving the Gary Police Department and the Department of Child Services.

The Deliverance also co-stars Anthony B. Jenkins, Miss Lawrence, Demi Singleton, Tasha Smith, with Omar Epps, Caleb McLaughlin, and Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor.

This is the latest project Daniels and Mo’Nique have worked on together since they settled a years-long feud over the promotional campaign for Precious (2009). The actress and comedian accused the filmmaker of blacklisting her in the entertainment industry after she refused to take part in awards season events promoting the Oscar-winning film.

The two finally made amends in 2022. Since then, they teamed up on the 2023 BET+ horror film, The Reading, which Mo’Nique starred in and Daniels executive produced.

The Deliverance is written by David Coggeshall (The Family Plan) and Elijah Bynum (Magazine Dreams). Daniels directs and produces.

Tucker Tooley, Pamela Oas Williams, Jackson Nguyen, and Todd Crites are also producers. Executive producers include Jackie Shenoo, Hilary Shor, Greg Renker, and Gregoire Gensollen

The film arrives in select theaters on Aug. 16 and begins streaming on Netflix Aug. 30.
