Blumhouse founder and producer Jason Blum took to Twitter yesterday to answer fan questions. The AMA covered about everything from the new Halloween to what horror franchises he’d like to adapt. In particular, Blum has his eye on Friday the 13th, though he hasn’t acquired rights yet. Blumhouse has supported recent successes such as Get Out (2017), Sharp Objects (2018), and Truth or Dare (2018), Upgrade (2018). Blumhouse is essentially behind the majority of the mainstream horror releases.

Blum talked quite a bit about the new Halloween coming this fall, from how scary it’ll be to Jamie Lee Curtis’s badassery.nofs

Blum also said that John Carpenter has been very supportive of the latest film, which is promising.

There’s no talks of a Halloween sequel yet. But Blum said hopefully it’ll perform well enough in the box office (and with audiences) to warrant another installment of the iconic franchise.

Blum doesn’t just have his sights on Halloween. He hopes to tackle other classics, such as AlienScream, and even another Carpenter film: Christine.

The new Halloween film premieres this September at the Toronto International Film Festival. Then it hits theaters October 19th, just in time for Halloween. David Gordon Green (Stronger) directed the film with a script from Jeff Fradley, Danny McBride, and himself. It picks up 40 years after John Carpenter’s 1978 slasher classic, Halloween. In the film, original Final Girl Laurie Strode (Curtis) must face down masked killer Michael Myers one last time.
