N.J. officials announced Wednesday that the city has purchased a movie about the New Jersey Carnival of the Dead, the first of a series of “Carnivals of the Living” to hit theaters.
The New Jersey Film Office, the state film regulator, announced that the film, about the Carnival of The Dead, will be shown at a public viewing and is expected to be in theaters in 2019.
The film is based on the classic novel by William James.
It is produced by Paramount Pictures and stars Jennifer Garner as the title character, and David Goyer as a carnival worker who works at the scene of the tragedy.
It also stars T.J., who is played by Robert Downey Jr.
Goyer, who directed “The Dark Knight Rises,” said in a statement that the movie “is a celebration of the past and the future of Carnival and will be a landmark in our country.”
The film, which is about the “Cantaloupe Carnival,” will be released by Paramount and Lionsgate in the U.S. and Canada.
The film’s release is scheduled for May 19.
