Following the success of his acclaimed horror remake Evil Dead Rise, director Lee Cronin is diving back into the genre. Here’s what we know about his upcoming project:

Cronin is writing and directing a new horror film described as “wickedly entertaining and terrifying.” While plot details are under wraps, the film has already secured a release date of April 17, 2026, through New Line Cinema, THR reports.

This project is significant as the first film greenlit under the newly merged Blumhouse and Atomic Monster banner. Jason Blum, known for his horror powerhouse Blumhouse, and James Wan, director of films like The Conjuring, join forces to produce this chilling new vision. Cronin’s own production company, Doppelgängers, is also on board.

Cronin’s previous film, Evil Dead Rise, garnered critical acclaim and box office success, grossing over $147 million worldwide. While specific details remain hidden, whispers suggest the film will offer a “modern take on something ancient.” This cryptic description has horror fans buzzing, with possibilities ranging from folk horror to cosmic terrors.

Cronin expressed his excitement: “Collaborating with Jason, James, and the wonderful teams… is what perfect nightmares are made of.” He also mentioned his delight at returning to work with New Line Cinema.

Lee Cronin‘s untitled horror film promises to be a terrifying treat for fans. With a powerhouse production team and Cronin’s proven talent, this collaboration will surely be one to watch when it’s released on April 17, 2026. While you wait, you can now watch Evil Dead Rise on MAX or get your copy on Blu-ray or 4K Ultra.
