Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey and Pretty Little Liars‘ Lucy Hale team up for Truth or Dare, a 2018 horror film that just debuted a new trailer and poster along with three photos. The supernatural thriller comes from director Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2, Never Back Down, Cry Wolf) who also co-wrote the script with Michael Reisz, Jillian Jacobs, and Chris Roach. Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum produces and writer/director Jeff Wadlow executive produces.
In addition to Tyler Posey (Jane the Virgin) and Lucy Hale (Life Sentence), the Truth or Dare cast includes Violett Beane (The Flash, The Leftovers), Nolan Gerard Funk (Major Crimes, Counterpart), Hayden Szeto (Lodge 49, The Edge of Seventeen), Landon Liboiron (Frontier, Last Teenagers of the Apocalypse), and Sophia Taylor Ali (Grey’s Anatomy, Faking It).
Universal Pictures is set to launch Truth or Dare in theaters on April 27, 2018.
Blumhouse Productions has developed a reputation for producing box office hits out of films with smaller budgets. In 2017, the production company’s Split and Get Out were huge hits, with Split grossing $278 million off a $9 million budget and Get Out ringing up $254 million from a $5 million budget. In addition, Get Out has been raking in awards from critics groups and will likely earn at least two Oscar nominations for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. 2018 releases include Insidious: The Last Key, Benji, The Purge: The Island, and a revamp of the Halloween film franchise starring Jamie Lee Curtis.
The Plot: A harmless game of “Truth or Dare” among friends turns deadly when someone-or something-begins to punish those who tell a lie-or refuse the dare.
