Jason Blum is Looking into Rebooting SCREAM and HELLRAISER Franchises

It’s been five months since Miramax CEO Bill Block set our black hearts aflutter by announcing the studio was seriously contemplating reboots of both the Scream and Hellraiser franchises, something I think many horror fans would support. To recap, he said:

“[Halloween] was a Miramax license, and you’ll see more of these coming from the studio now… I will have some things to share with you. You mentioned something there that we’re working on – two things in there that we’re working on. This is going to be a part of the new program.”

Since Halloween was such a success, our friends at CinemaBlend talked to maverick Jason Blum about the prospect of bringing either franchise under the Blumhouse umbrella. And while his response didn’t signal anything eminent, Blum revealed that he’s looking into both Scream and Hellraiser!

“Yes, [Miramax and I] definitely have [discussed it]. We’re looking – there’s nothing happening with either one of those things – but we’re definitely looking at it, and it’s definitely something I’d be open to.”

Blumhouse recently released Happy Death Day 2U with Jordan Peele’s Us coming down the pike on March 22nd. Everything the studio touches seems to turn golden!

What do you think, horror fans? Would Scream and or Hellraiser be in good hands with Blum and company? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
