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?
