UPDATED: Earlier today, Todd Farmer posted “Holy cow. That’s alot of emails, FB messages and PMs. Love the excitement but nothing’s changed. We’re still doing both. :)” on his Twitter account. Sounds like Lussier and Farmer are still on board for BOTH Halloween 3D and Hellraiser!
The beginning of 2012 is already crowded with theatrical horror releases (that’s not a bad thing!), and it looks like it just got shook up a bit. Moving from it’s previous February 3 release date, Relativity Media’s House at the End of the Street is now set to bow on April 20.
The Mark Tonderai helmed film, which centers on a teen girl (Jennifer Lawrence) who moves with her mom to a new town and learns that their home is across the street from a house where a double murder took place, will now go head to head with Dimension’s Scary Movie 5. The film has been rumored to be in production of some sort since 2006, after its predecessor took in $41 million opening weekend. It’ll hit theaters April 20, 2012.
Speaking of films stuck in development hell, looks like Dimension is fast-tracking Halloween 3D (again!), with a release date of October 26, 2012. Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer are currently working on the Hellraiser reboot for the Weinsteins, which means they’re either shifting their focus or a new team is being brought in. Expect the rumors to start flying over the next few days.
