Blumhouse had a whole lot of success last year with their Friday, October 13 release of clever slasher Happy Death Day, and we’ve learned tonight that they’re looking to have the same success at the box office this year by once again capitalizing on Friday the 13th.
Originally scheduled for release on April 27, Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare has just been bumped up two weeks to Friday, April 13. Smart move, we say.
“A harmless game of “Truth or Dare” among friends turns deadly when someone—or something—begins to punish those who tell a lie—or refuse the dare.”
Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf”), Violett Beane (“The Flash”), Lucy Hale (Scream 4), Nolan Gerard Funk, Hayden Szeto, and Sophia Taylor Ali, and Aurora Perrineau (Freaks of Nature) star in the latest supernatural horror film from Blumhouse Productions.
Wadlow co-wrote the script with Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs from a story by Michael Reisz, Wadlow, Roach and Jacobs. Micro-budget maven Jason Blum is producing with Wadlow, Roach and Blumhouse’s Couper Samuelson serving as exec producers.
Wadlow is the writer behind A&E’s “Bates Motel” and the writer-director of Kick Ass 2.
