New Line has set high school horror film “Gallows” — formerly titled “Superstition” — for a July 10 release.
New Line bought the found-footage project from Blumhouse Prods. and Film 360, the film production operation of Management 360.
The project grew out of directors Chris Lofing and Travis Cluff posting footage on YouTube. Film 360 discovered the project and teamed micro-budget icon Jason Blum to produce.
New Line closed a deal for the finished film last July and originally scheduled it for Oct. 23, 2015. The company scored a pair of solid horror hits with 2013’s “The Conjuring” and this fall’s spinoff “Annabelle.”
As for Blum, he’s been behind an array of highly profitable horror franchises: “Paranormal Activity,” “Insidious,” “Sinister” and “The Purge.”
