Disappointing news came for Michael Dougherty's fans as recent reports claimed that his upcoming horror film "Trick 'r Treat" has been dropped by its distributor. According to Bloody-Disgusting, the film written and directed by the scribbler of "Superman Returns" has been left by Warner Bros. Pictures.
Worst Previews further reported that Legendary Pictures, one of the film's production companies, is working on finding another studio to take over the screening rights. The dropping of the film that is produced by Bryan Singer allegedly has also been confirmed by ShockTillYouDrop which noted that Warner Bros didn't mention the film on the studio's upcoming release schedule.
"Trick" which is actually scheduled to open in theaters sometime this year tells about four interwoven stories occurring on Halloween day. The film featuring Anna Paquin, Brian Cox and Leslie Bibb follows the stories of a high school principal who has double life as a serial killer, a college virgin who might find her 'the one', a band of teenagers who set up a mean trick joke, and a Halloween-hater married woman who has to dispute her husband over his holiday obsession.
