Happy Death Day became a hit when it hit theaters in 2017. So much so that it warranted a sequel – which came out last year; Happy Death Day 2U. The sequel didn’t do as well and this seemed to have squashed any hope for a third movie.
Or did it? Jason Blum expressed, in an interview recently; that he’s still thinking about the franchise. It should be said that he isn’t sure what kind of future the franchise will have, but he does assure fans he’s still thinking about it.
“I would say Happy Death Day is still on my radar in some shape or form. I haven’t put it to bed yet, so I don’t know how it’s going to manifest itself but it’s still in the front of my mind. Never say never. Never say never. I got ideas.”
Blum made sure to get the point across – there are no immediate plans for a third film:
“I’m not going to say we’re doing Happy Death Day 3 right now but I’m not going to not say it either. I haven’t put it to bed yet, despite the fact that anyone else in Hollywood would have, because the second movie didn’t work.”
“It was an amazing movie, but it didn’t work financially.”
Editors Note: I am not sure how Jason can say HDD2U did not work financially when it was made for $9 million and made back over 7 times its budget. Granted it did not make as much as the first but they were building something unique and I think its box office warrants a sequel.
Would you want a third Happy Death Day?
