Jason Blum tucks another project under his belt. It’s interesting, I sort of feel like Blumhouse is entering a “Phase 2″ where they start casting a wider thematic net. I’m excited to see if The Purge lives up to its trailer and I’m VERY curious about the super-meta take on The Town That Dreaded Sundown remake.
So hopefully this project he’s putting together with Fast Five writer Chris Morgan continues that trend. For now I’ll call it Untitled Jasom Blum/Chris Morgan Sci-Fi. Per The Hollywood Reporter, it’s “a low-budget sci-fi movie project.” Morgan will produce with Blum but won’t write, those duties fall to Christopher Denham (writer of the unreleased Area 51; actor in Argo),
The film “centers on a group of students who invent a new technology with ramifications that go far beyond their control.” Both Blum and Morgan have deals with Universal, so it would likely fall there. But there’s no way of telling just yet.
