Universal Pictures has set a February 14th 2019 wide release date for the upcoming sequel “Happy Death Day 2U,” a follow-up to the 2017 horror hit from Blumhouse Pictures.
The first film followed a college student (Jessica Rothe) who slips into a horrific time loop as she relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.
It earned $123 million worldwide from a production budget of $4.8 million, and both Rothe and co-star Israel Broussard return for the next outing while Suraj Sharma and Sarah Yarkin join the cast. Christopher Landon pens and directs the follow-up.
Production got underway in May on the sequel and Jason Blum, Angela Mancuso, John Baldecchi and Samson Mucke are producing.
