Jeff Wadlow, who directed Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare, will helm the TV-to-film adaptation.

Blumhouse Productions, the studio behind acclaimed low-budget horror hits like Get Out and Split, has become the go-to studio for high-concept, low-budget horror.

How do you adapt an unadaptable Stephen King novel into a movie? The answer, apparently, is to hire Mike Flanagan.
Flanagan may not be the type of household name horror director the way John Carpenter, Wes Craven and George Romero once and still are, but over the last several years, he’s been quietly rising to prominence as one of the most efficient craftsmen in the horror genre. As a horror filmmaker, Flanagan seems to have a knack for taking unlikely, or unworkable, concepts and finding the humanity in them. Gerald’s Game, Flanagan’s adaptation of a seemingly unfilmable King novel, has already earned high praise from early screenings and hits Netflix today, possibly launching the filmmaker to even greater prominence. The film is exemplary, but it’s just another piece in the greater puzzle that is Flanagan’s growing filmography.
