'Conjuring 2' Gets a Release Date
An untitled horror movie plus "Mean Moms" and "How to be Single" also get dates.
New Line and Warner Bros. have set a release date for The Conjuring 2 as well as dates for the female-skewing projects Mean Moms and How to Be Single. Also on the docket is an untitled horror movie.
Conjuring 2, which will not be directed by James Wan (it doesn’t have a director at all at this stage), will open Oct. 23, 2015. No other movies are on that date at this point, although Universal is opening up Guillermo del Toro’s gothic horror movie Crimson Peak on Oct. 16.
Mean Moms, which is based on the book Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads, will open May 8, 2015, putting it near the start of the traditional summer moviegoing season. So far, New Line/Warners have the date all to themselves, although The Avengers: Age of Ultron is opening a week earlier.
How to Be Single, an ensemble romantic comedy, has been set for a Feb. 12, 2016, release, putting it in play for Valentine’s Day. Lily Collins may be the first person to join the cast as she is in early talks to star.
New Line also has slotted an Oct. 3 date for an untitled horror movie. The company did not disclose details of the project but since the date is under eight months away, speculation is running rampant that it could be the Conjuring spinoff Annabelle or the Wan-produced Crawlspace.
