Christopher Landon, the director of the very underrated and extremely fun franchise Happy Death Day, has revealed the working title of Happy Death Day 3. Happy Death Day To Us is the working title. In my opinion this franchise could have been the next Scream if people gave it a chance.
Landon said the following.
It’s definitely off to the side at the moment. I wish it wasn’t, and I know that [Jason Blum, producer] is passionate about it, I know I’m very passionate about it, and I know that Jessica [Rothe] is really eager to do it as well. I wrote the idea for the third movie some time ago. I think we’re all excited by it, because it’s different than the other two films, and so we’re really just crossing our fingers and hoping that our fanbase continues to grow – which is something that I’ve really enjoyed watching over the years, seeing more and more people discover both films. So, who knows? There might be a time when it makes sense, and hopefully it’s sooner rather than later.”
While Happy Death Day made $125 million at the box office Happy Death Day 2 only made 64.6 Million and that may be the deciding factor here, hopefully Jason Blum will still be eager to complete the trilogy. Landon also added this about Happy Death Day To Us.
The idea for the third film is not set in the same day, if that’s a big spoiler. So, it can happen later,” he adds, “We’re not up against a really difficult clock right now. The other movies were hard, because they were set in the exact same day, so everybody had to look the same, be the same. The pressure is off there.”
