It’s been revealed that the Candyman reboot’s release date has been pushed back to August 2021, which means that it’s now been delayed twice.
This is one of the movies I’ve really been looking forward to, and it’s now been pushed back twice due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
It’s been reported by Deadline that Candyman’s new release date is August 27th, 2021.
The film was originally pushed from its release date in June 2020 (yep, we would have seen this film already if it wasn’t for COVID-19).
Candyman’s release date after the fist delay wasn’t actually specified.
The film is being directed by Nia DaCosta and it will be a fresh take on the original film which came out back in 1992.
That said, this new Candyman film is said to be a spiritual sequel to the very first film.

This new Candyman film will star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Teyonah Parris.
The original film 1990s horror franchise follows a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, who is accidentally summoned to reality when people say his name five times in the mirror.
Candyman is now going in the now-gentrified Chicago neighbourhood where the legend of Candyman began.
Jordan Peele, DaCosta, and Win Rosenfield wrote the film’s script and Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions is producing the picture alongside with Bron Creative.
