Universal Pictures have released a new teaser clip from ‘Candyman’; the reboot of Clive Barker horror classic; 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).
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.
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.
The long-running horror franchise The Purge is set to continue this year with a new entry. Up to this point, things have remained extremely hush hush about what Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures have in store for us on Purge night this time around.
However we have been given our first insight into this latest instalment with the reveal of the films titles.
For health care workers, the N95 mask is an invaluable line of defense against the Coronavirus. These highly protective respirators can keep doctors and nurses from getting infected by patients, but the world is quickly running out of them.
With the US being no exception to this shortage, Trancas International Films, along with Blumhouse Productions, Miramax and Universal Pictures have come up with a way to help.
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.
