‘The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes’ Update, ‘Insidious’ Television Series?

In an interview with Crave, producer Jason Blum opened up about all things Blumhouse, including the gestured The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes, the “official” new addition to the franchise that was to be written and directed by Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands.

When asked for a prognosis, Blum explain that it’s not dead. “Nope. Still going, still going, still going, still going,” he tells the site. “We’re going to make that movie and it’s very cool. But I don’t quite know yet when.

The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes was to showcase the events after the time of the original The Amityville Horror book and movie through found-footage dating back to 1976.

In other brief news, Blum, who also produced the Insidious films, reveals that he’d be open to a television series. “I’d like to do that. I don’t think you can do that while we’re still making movies,” he explains. “Now Leigh [Whannell] is writing the third Insidious, so we have to see how far we can take the series of movies…but I believe very strongly that once that kind of comes to a close you can do a series, and I think soon we’ll be in a place where you can have a series at the same time. Although right now people are too nervous to have that.

Specs and Tucker the series? Would you watch that?

    Insidious: The Series would be smart instead of doing the endless sequel route imo. Not sure if I’d watch though if it is the Specs and Tucker show. I’ve been dying to see another Amityville movie but found footage is a negative.

    This is what SHOULD happen: At the end of the Conjuring the main characters mention that their “next case is in Long Island, New York”. Therefor I think it would be an insanely smart decision to make the Conjuring sequel about the Amityville house. I think it would sell tickets like crazy. As for a Specs and Tucker spin-off…maybe. I’d much rather see Tucker and Dale go to College though.
