New Lee Cronin project from Atomic Monster and Blumhouse set for 2026 release

Atomic Monster and Blumhouse will co-produce a new untitled film from Irish writer/director Lee Cronin (Evil Dead Rise), which is moving forward at New Line Cinema. The film will be released on April 17, 2026.

The film will be written and directed by Cronin, and it marks the first collaboration for recently merged companies, Atomic Monster and Blumhouse, helmed by James Wan and Jason Blum, with Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group. Cronin's Doppelgängers banner will also be involved.

A logline for the film remains under wraps.

Cronin's most recent film Evil Dead Rise grossed nearly $150 million worldwide.

“I am super excited to be gathering up my gang of oddballs from Doppelgängers to join forces with the overlords of horror at Blumhouse and Atomic Monster,” said Cronin. “Collaborating with Jason, James and the wonderful teams from these two storied and massively successful organisations is what perfect nightmares are made of. Getting to return to New Line Cinema and my wonderful partners over there is the cherry on top. I've got something wickedly entertaining and terrifying hidden up my sleeve, and I can't wait to bring it screaming to the big screen on April 17th, 2026.”

Cronin's debut feature film, The Hole in the Ground, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2019. Released by A24, the film earned Cronin a Saturn Award nomination for Breakthrough Director. His sophomore feature, Evil Dead Rise, was theatrically released through New Line Cinema in April 2023. The film debuted at SXSW and grossed $147 million worldwide.

Following this, Cronin, along with John Keville and Macdara Kelleher of Wild Atlantic Pictures, launched Doppelgängers. The company has already signed a first-look deal with New Line Cinema for its feature film projects. Under the Doppelgängers banner, the trio develops genre-focused feature films and television projects for Cronin to produce, write and direct. Cronin and New Line Cinema are currently in development on a horror-thriller titled Thaw.

Producer John Keville said “We’re thrilled to continue our long relationship with Lee with our first production through Doppelgängers. We couldn’t think of better partners to go on this journey with than the teams at Blumhouse, Atomic Monster and New Line Cinema.”

Atomic Monster and Blumhouse are co-financing the film. James Wan and Jason Blum are producers on the film. Michael Clear and Judson Scott are executive producers. Alayna Glasthal is the executive overseeing the project for Atomic Monster.

Cronin's currently untitled film will be released on April 17, 2026.
