Jason Blum is one of the most influential figures in the entertainment industry, especially when it comes to content within the horror/thriller genre. As the founder and CEO of Blumhouse Productions, he has been a driving force behind the making of horror/thriller films such as Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Visit, Split and Get Out amongst many others.
In an interview with Collider, Jason Blum had the chance to discuss Halloween which recently made its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) as well as the future content that will come out of Blumhouse Productions.
This is what Jason Blum had to say when it came to the responses towards Halloween as well as the potential for future sequels in this franchise:
“Yeah, I would love to make more of them. I’m really looking forward to seeing how people respond. Hopefully, people will like it as much as I do. And yeah, of course, I’d love to make more of them. Hopefully, we’ll get the chance to do that.”
As I previously mentioned, another topic of discussion was the upcoming content by Blumhouse Productions in both film and television and here is what Jason Blum had to say about this matter:
“On the movie side, we have Halloween, and then we have Glass, and then we have Us. And then, the next movies that are not dated yet but finished are Happy Death Day 2 and Ma, which is our Octavia Spencer and Tate Taylor movie. And then, the two movies we have in development, that we’ve been spending a lot of time on recently, are Spawn and Five Nights at Freddy’s.”
“And on the television side, we have our Hulu series Into the Dark, which is a series of 10 original scary movies, each one based on a different holiday, through the course of the year, and the first one comes out in October. We have a series right now on Facebook Watch, called Sacred Lies.”
“And on the production side of TV, we’re going into production on our Russell Crowe series about Roger Ailes (called The Loudest Voice in the Room), which starts at the end of October in New York. So, we have a lot going on, and a lot to look forward to.”
