I was just thinking the other, “We need another Scary Movie film!”. The ‘Scary Movie’ franchise, which launched in 2000, has earned almost $900 million at the box office. The films were a parody of horror film such as Scream, The Ring, I Know What You Did Last Summer and many more hit films. The franchise has been in limbo since Scary Movie 5 released in 2013 but we have learned today that a reboot or continuation of the franchise might be in the works.
Take this with a grain of salt but we are told that Lantern Entertainment have been holding early talks to get a new Scary Movie into development. Presumably the idea is to base it on more recent horrors like The Conjuring franchise and IT. Definitely not a done deal yet and depends on a lot of factors.
Now this is something I could see being in the works or at least talked about. The Conjuring franchise is one of the most popular going today with numerous spin off films. IT is one of the highest grossing horror movies of all time with over $700 million and its sequel earned $473 million.
Right now though this all being talked about and nothing might come from it so as stated before take it with a grain of salt. We have not been able to get a second confirmation on this news so we are taking it as rumor right now but we will for sure be looking into this more and if we have more to share we will.
