Universal Delays ‘Candyman’ Until 2021

Another movie pushed further and further due to the ongoing pandemic. Universal has officially delayed Nia DaCosta’s “contemporary incarnation” of Candyman until 2021. It was initially set to hit theaters in June, before being pushed to September and then October. According to an Entertainment Weekly article, Universal still has plans to release Candyman theatrically and is “currently assessing optimal release dates.” Today, DaCosta, who co-wrote and directed the film, shared the news on Twitter.

Candyman is being produced and co-written by Jordan Peele, and it will be a “spiritual sequel” to the 1992 cult classic “that returns to the now-gentrified Chicago neighborhood where the legend began.” It stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, and Colman Domingo.
