Paramount Pictures has set release dates for the horror film ‘Crawl’ and Paramount Players drama ‘Playing with Fire.’ However, the animated television show adaptation of ‘The Loud House’ is no longer on the schedule. The film’s February 7, 2020 date now holds DC’s ‘Birds of Prey,’ and Sony’s ‘Peter Rabbit 2.’
‘Crawl’ will release on August 23. Alexandre Aja directs, Sam Raimi is producing.
The film stars Kaya Scodelario as a young woman who becomes trapped in a flooding house during a Category 5 hurricane. She then must battle against Florida’s most savage and feared predators. It will open against Lionsgate action sequel ‘Angel Has Fallen’ and Sony’s Kendrick brothers drama ‘Overcomer.’
‘Playing with Fire’ will release on March 20, 2020.
John Cena and Judy Greer star in the film about three orphaned kids with the determination to stay together. This is due to them learning of the Social Services’ plan to send them to separate foster homes. Also, John Leguizamo has joined and Keegan-Michael Key is in final negotiations. The film has that opening weekend to itself for now.
In 2017, Paramount announced there would be a feature adaptation of the Nickelodeon animated series ‘The Loud House.’ Then, later that year, series creator Chris Savino was fired from the series following allegations of sexual misconduct. The series continued under the guidance of co-executive producer Mike Rubiner. The film has been on hold, and it is unknown if it will continue.
