A while back Jason Blum said he wanted to get his hands on as many franchises as he could. We’ve seen the Halloween franchise get a proper sequel to mixed results even though I loved it. We see what he is doing with the classic monsters that was at Universal and hopefully it turns out better than Tom Cruises The Mummy(yes I paid to see that in IMAX 3D).
The SCREAM connection comes from our buddies over at Discussing Film who write:
.. there is a possibility that it could be an existing IP that is being kept under wraps, given the vague plot details, it could even be the ‘Scream’ reboot that Blumhouse has discussed.
The “vague plot details” center on the film’s slim synopsis which involves “a killer who wreaks havoc in a small town.” Plus, back in February, Blumhouse head honcho, Jason Blum said he’s had talks about taking over the SCREAM and HELLRAISER franchises, teasing:
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
I’m interested to see if this is real after the rumor of a third Death Day was debunked and the director said unless Netflix steps up it’s not going to happen.
