Paramount Pictures recently announced that the official theatrical release dates for three franchise horror sequels have been pushed back to later this year and, in the case of one set for a fall release, to summer of next year.

The films are David Bruckner’s Friday the 13th, the Akiva Goldsman and David Loucka’s scripted Rings, and Gregory Plotkin’s Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension.

The new release dates are as followed:

Replacing Friday the 13th‘s November slot is a new Rings movie. It will be the first in the franchise since The Ring 2 was released a decade ago.
