Jason Blum Talks Potential Halloween, Get Out Sequels

One of these is a given while there is one very specific requirement for the other to happen.

You could say that Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions occasionally dabble in the horror genre, to say the least. With the new Halloween movie finally unleashed on the world, all eyes are naturally looking ahead to what comes next for the series, especially considering the film’s positive reception and resulting commercial success. There have already been talks about the potential of a sequel but it has to be a given by now, right?

In a chat with Variety, producer Jason Blum offered an update on that front, reiterating that he wants to do a sequel and explained what the next steps are in making that happen.


Furthermore, Blum was asked about the possibility of creating a sequel to Get Out but there are no plans to revisit that just yet. If that ever was on the table, he explained, the only way that he would do it is if Jordan Peele were involved and had an idea that he wanted to bring to life. Here's what he had to say.


With respect to Halloween, however, it seems to be more of a matter of “when” than “if,” which is great news for long-time horror fans who were glad to see Michael Myers finally return to prominence once again. Based on everything we have heard so far, most of the team has expressed interest in doing another one so we can expect some news on that front sooner or later.

As always, stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest on Halloween.
