“EVIL DEAD RISE” DIRECTOR LEE CRONIN HELMING SECRET PROJECT FOR BLUMHOUSE AND ATOMIC MONSTER

Posted on: June 26th, 2024

He took the world by surprise with Evil Dead Rise, now filmmaker Lee Cronin has something else up his sleeve… We’re just not allowed to know what it is yet.

Described as “a top-secret project,” Cronin’s Doppelgängers label will produce, alongside Blumhouse, New Line Cinema, and James Wan’s Atomic Monster.

Dated for an April 2026 release, speculation is rampant as to what project has brought all three powerhouses together for their first collaboration.

Speaking of the project in a statement, Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum said the following:
“Lee’s work is always fresh and surprising and he has an intriguing, modern take on something quite ancient that I think audiences will love. This also marks an exciting series of firsts for us: Atomic Monster and Blumhouse’s first time working with Lee and our first joint project for Warner Bros. We can’t wait to get started.”

Cronin added:
“Returning to New Line Cinema and my wonderful partners over there is the cherry on top. I’ve got something wickedly entertaining and terrifying hidden up my sleeve, and I can’t wait to bring it screaming to the big screen.”

Cronin subsequently uploaded the front page of the script to his Instagram account, with the titled scribbled over. Whilst they’ll do all they can to keep this mystery alive, rumours online are pointing towards the project being the long-awaited Nightmare on Elm Street reboot.

However, only time will tell. We’re looking forward to more updates on this one.
