Jason Blum on the Upcoming ‘The Exorcist’ Sequel Trilogy

Blumhouse Productions CEO Jason Blum revealed that ‘The Exorcist’ sequel trilogy will follow up the same strategy of Halloween. The story will be fresh and worth revisiting.

Speaking to Variety, Jason Blum on the upcoming ‘The Exorcist’ sequel trilogy: “Hopefully, we will do the same thing with ‘The Exorcist’ that we did with ‘Halloween’ – make it in a way that’s fresh and worth revisiting, different enough so that people are happy we did it.”

“It has been enough already. That last ‘Paranormal Activity’ movie was terrible,” he says. “Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin” premiered in 2021, with another installment currently eyeing a 2023 release.

“With ‘Halloween,’ we only had the rights to three movies, so we said: ‘Halloween Ends’! It ends for Blumhouse, at least. With other things, you just have this feeling it’s time to put them to bed. It would come back if some director I love, like Scott Derrickson, said: ‘I have a great idea for a ‘Paranormal Activity’ movie. But it’s not something I want to do [at the moment].”

Blum also talked about the Batgirl cancelled by Warner Bros. Discovery. “I was surprised by it but I understood why they chose to do it. You have new management, so they want a new start and to brand DC in a certain way,” he says. Pointing out that at Blumhouse Productions, directors “trade big budgets for control.”
