Last year, Blumhouse brought back the horror classic Halloween. The film turned out to be a huge success grossing over $250 million at the worldwide box office, on just a $10 million budget. With a Halloween sequel in development, that might not be the only big name horror franchise Blumhouse tackles.
While speaking with CinemaBlend, last September, Miramax CEO and Halloween producer Bill Block teased the possibility of further reboots for the Scream and Hellraiser franchises, explaining that both properties will be “part of the new program.”
The outlet recently sat with Blumhouse chief, Jason Blum who shared some additional tidbits, teasing that we may see new films from these horror classics soon.
“Yes, we definitely have [discussed it]. We’re looking – there’s nothing happening with either one of those things – but we’re definitely looking at it, and it’s definitely something I’d be open to.”
This isn’t the first time Blum tackled questions regarding Scream, telling Forbes in September that he’d like to tackle the series, but there are still “business obstacles to cross.” To put things into perspective, the producer also mentioned that the Halloween reboot “was in the works with us for four or five years before it evolved.”
Blumhouse just released the sequel to their 2017 surprise hit Happy Death Day, Happy Death 2U, Which has already made back it’s $9 million production budget, grossing $26.5 million in less than a week.
