Not a trick, undoubtedly not a deal with: Common Footage has pulled Blumhouse‘s “Wolf Man” from its primo Halloween 2024 launch, and has re-dated the broad launch for January 17, 2025.

With “Wolf Man” (from Leigh Whannell, starring Christopher Abbott) now in mid-January 2025, Common took Blumhouse’s “The Girl within the Yard” — initially slated for January 10, 2025 — off its schedule. That one, starring Danielle Deadwyler, “is now unset and might be re-dated for a later date,” Common stated on Friday. In different phrases, it undoubtedly received’t be changing “Wolf Man” this coming Halloween season.

Jason Blum can’t purchase a date these days round his favourite vacation. This previous Halloween, it was Taylor Swift who ruined his (and others’) best-laid plans. When Swift introduced her live performance movie, “The Eras Tour,” would launch in theaters on October 13, 2023, Blum (properly) selected to maneuver “The Exorcist: Believer” off of its very appropriate unique date of Friday the thirteenth. In October. Eighteen days forward of Halloween.

The Swift information most likely went down like a bitter Warhead at Blumhouse. However Blum was cool about it, tweeting in his announcement: “Look what you made me do,” citing a preferred Swift lyric. “The Exorcist: Believer” was moved as much as October 6, 2023 — so it wasn’t all dangerous.

“The Exorcist: Believer” made $136 million on the worldwide field workplace. Swift’s “Eras Tour” movie made nearly twice that, and is the most-successful live performance film ever.

This “Wolf Man” is from author/director Leigh Whannell, who wrote and directed “The Invisible Man.” The now-January launch is a reimagining of the traditional monster. Corbett Tuck, Lauren Schuker Blum, and Rebecca Angelo wrote the movie with Whannell“Wolf Man” stars Christopher Abbott (most just lately “Poor Issues”) as a person whose household is being terrorized by a deadly predator.

Whannell, Ryan Gosling, Ken Kao, Bea Sequeira, and Mel Turner government produce. Jason Blum produces.

The movie solely began manufacturing 12 days in the past. Jason Blum tweeted a photograph of Whannell holding the clapboard. “Day One on the set of Wolf Man,” Blum wrote. “LFG!!!”

Maybe LFG a bit sooner.

“The Girl within the Yard” is an unique horror movie starring Danielle Deadwyler. It’s directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (“Black Adam”) and written by first-time function screenwriter Sam Stefanak.

Jason Blum produces, as does Stephanie Allain. Deadwyler, Collet-Serra, Gabrielle Ebron, Scott Greenberg, and James Moran government produce. And that’s about all we’ve obtained on that one.
