“With this movie, I really wanted to go back to the first two original games and recreate the terrifying visceral experience I had when I first played them while telling a human story rooted in a dying little American town. both relevant and relevant to today’s audience, ” said the director previously.
We know that the next movie will be centered around the period of the franchise’s first two games. More information on the story is still pending, but hopefully we will learn more soon now that it’s in active development and has a tentatively set release date.
It’s important to remember that even though a release date has been proposed, COVID-19 continues to impact daily life, which means the film – like so many other entertainment projects – is subject to other delays.
