Having happily revived the “Halloween” franchise and planning for more sequels, horror film mega producer Jason Blum previously hinted last year in several interviews that he had a strong personal desire to also revive the “Friday the 13th” film series.
Now, speaking with Cinema Blend, he has indicated that Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees aren’t the only classic horror icon he could resurrect as the success of “Halloween” and his collaboration with Miramax CEO and producer Bill Block means other properties could also find new life at Blumhouse Productions.
Asked specifically if there’s interest in new chapters for both the “Scream” and “Hellraiser” franchises, Blum confirmed there have been talks but nothing is currently in active development: “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.”
Blumhouse turned the $10 million budgeted “Halloween” into a juggernaut that raked in $253.7 million worldwide.
