Jordan Peele's 'Candyman' Release Date Delayed Due To Pandemic

Jordan Peele‘s new horror Candyman is getting a brand new release date due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The reboot of the classic 1992 slasher film was supposed to be released on June 12 and will now hit theaters on Sept. 25, 2020.

Jordan Peele co-wrote the Candyman remake with Win Rosenfeld and DaCosta. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Teyonah Parris star in the movie from Universal Pictures and MGM.

Universal’s film Praise This, previously set for release on Sept. 25, is now without a release date and will be scheduled at a later time (Variety reports).

Universal has already pushed three major movies, including Minions: Rise of Gru, Fast & Furious entry F9 and Sing 2, in addition removing Wicked from the release calendar.
