With the release of “Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension” this week, Paramount is closing out its most lucrative horror franchise of recent years. The news wasn’t so great today though for two other horror franchise films on its development slate.
Deadline reports that the “Friday the 13th” reboot in the works, the second following the 2009 effort, has been delayed again. Originally slated for late this year and then pushed back to May 13th 2016, it will now open January 13th 2017. The delay is unsurprising as the film is still in development and has yet to secure a cast or lock down filming dates.
Meanwhile “Rings,” the third film in “The Ring” series, has found a new date. Originally slated for November 13th this year, it was delayed the other week to an unspecified 2016 release date. Well that date is now locked – April 1st 2016. Unlike ‘Friday,’ the new “Rings” has already been shot and stars the likes of Aimee Teegarden, Johnny Galecki and Zach Roerig.
