Lucy Hale-Tyler Posey Thriller ‘Truth or Dare’ Slated for April Release

Universal Studios has set Blumhouse’s supernatural thriller “Truth or Dare,” starring Lucy Hale and Tyler Posey, for an April 27 release.

The story centers on a harmless game of “Truth or Dare” among friends that turns deadly when someone — or something — begins to punish those who tell a lie or refuse the dare.

The film is directed by Jeff Wadlow (“Kick-Ass 2”) and co-stars Violett Beane, Nolan Gerard Funk, Hayden Szeto, and Sophia Taylor Ali. The film was produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum and executive produced by Wadlow.

Universal has seen several box office successes this year for low-cost Blumhouse horror titles with “Split” taking in $280 million worldwide and “Get Out” pulling in $250 million. Its “Happy Death Day,” released Oct. 13, is nearing $80 million worldwide.

Blumhouse broke out with the “Paranormal Activity” franchise and went on to produce the “Purge” and “Insidious” franchises. Its other 2018 titles include “Insidious: The Last Key,” “The Purge: The Island,” and the reboot of “Halloween,” starring Jamie Lee Curtis.

Hale is best known for her role in “Pretty Little Liars.” Posey stars in “Teen Wolf.”

“Truth or Dare” is the third title to land on April 27, which also has an untitled A24 horror movie and Lionsgate’s thriller “Traffick.” Disney-Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” opens a week later on May 4.
