Jason Blum is perhaps the most prolific mainstream horror producer working today. His Blumhouse production company, among other things, overlooks production on the Paranormal Activity series as well as The Purge, Insidious, Sinister, Oculus and any sequels those films might spawn in the future. Joblo.com will be posting an interview with the busy bee sometime next week but they have already offered some snippets from the discussion regarding what might be about to go down.
Blum had this to say about Sinister 2:
We're moving forward on it, there will be some fun announcements on it very soon… I do believe that will be coming out in 2015.
About a possible finale to Paranormal Activity:
For PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, I would never say never, my friend. I don't know, I really don't know the answer to that question. I wouldn't want to say anything and then be wrong. i don't think anyone really knows the answer to that.
On whether Oculus will spawn a sequel:
I try not to think about that. I don't mean to be coy to answer that question. If the movie is a big hit and Mike wants to make a sequel, I'll be the first one saying let's make a sequel.
And when we might see Insidious 3:
It's very near, it's on the horizon. We'll have some announcements about that in the coming weeks. Both SINISTER 2 and INSIDIOUS 3 are on the fast track at our company.
So no shortage of shock and horror on the way next year.
