Female Blumhouse Directors

How much of an introduction does a producer like Jason Blum really need? We all know the name Blumhouse Productions, the production company Blum founded 20 years ago. It was in 2009 the company exploded and discovered a winning formula in modestly budgeted horror movies with low risks and potentially high rewards. Now, Blumhouse is a company whose name attracts as many moviegoers, if not more so, than most name actors. 

The latest Blumhouse Production is You Should Have Left, which is writer-director David Koepp returning to Stir of Echoes territory with his leading man, Kevin Bacon. The story is set almost entirely in a house where Bacon can’t escape the past. Based on a german novella by writer Daniel Kehlmann, it’s a modern spin on “The Tell-Tale Heart.”

But what about other horror franchises? Could Jason Blum and company reboot more fright flicks? That’s the dream (or should I say nightmare?). In the past, Blum has mentioned a passing interest in a Scream reboot, and he hasn’t given up the idea. The mega-producer also would like to take a crack at Hellraiser. Nothing is even close to official yet, but that could change.
