Two time Golden Globe winning actress and filmmaker Jamie Lee Curtis and her Comet Pictures label have signed a three-year, first look deal with Blumhouse in both the film and TV arena, Deadline has reported.
Curtis, who has directed episodes of both Anything But Love and Scream Queens, is stepping back behind the camera for the feature horror project Mother Nature.
‘Purge 5’ the latest chapter in Universal Pictures’ dystopian horror franchise, has been indefinitely delayed. The film, titled “The Forever Purge,” was set to release in theaters July 10 and has been pulled indefinitely from the studio’s release slate.
USA Network has cancelled The Purge and Treadstone, two highly-visible series based on theatrical properties.
The Purge, based on the Blumhouse horror franchise of the same name, made it through two seasons, with its season two finale airing back in December. Treadstone, a spinoff from The Bourne Identity, is the latest attempt by USA parent company NBC Universal to extend the life of that franchise. It was cancelled after only one season.
Universal Pictures was set to bring a horror icon back to life on June 12, 2020 with the release Candyman.
This installment will be a direct sequel to the original 1992 film and has been described as a spiritual sequel.
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic that’s forced cinemas across the world to shut down, Universal will no longer be releasing Candyman on that date.
We’ve been hearing for years about the reboot of Clive Barker horror classic ‘Candyman‘ and now we can see the first trailer from the project; produced by Jordan Peele (Get Out, US) with Jason Blum for his studio Blumhouse (in association with MGM); and directed by Nia DaCosta (Top Boy, Crossing the Line).
The film stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman), Teyonah Parris (If Beale Street Could Talk) and Tony Todd returning as the title character.
