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.

Jordan Peele's 'Candyman' Looks to Be Just as Scary as 'Get Out' & 'Us' - Watch the Trailer!

It looks like Jordan Peele is going to deliver ANOTHER hit horror film! The trailer for Candyman just debuted and it does not disappoint! He wrote the film alongside Win Rosenfeld and Nia DaCosta. Nia directed the movie.

Here’s a synopsis: For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.

With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.

The film will hit theaters on June 12!
