CelebnMovies247.com reports that producer Jason Blum has been working on the latest installment in the iconic horror series, but the film has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It feels like all of our lives have come to a grinding halt due to the pandemic, but better safe than sorry.
Now, Jason insists that he will be releasing the film in October 2021 “come hell or high water”.
There have been talks that 2021 will be much like 2020 and none of want that, but it’s looking like mid-2022 is when things may get back to normal.
As for Blum, when asked if he would consider postponing the film for a further year if the health crisis continues, he said:
No. If this is still going on next Halloween? No, we’re not holding it. ‘Halloween Kills’ is coming out next October come hell or high water, vaccine or no vaccine. It is coming out.
Jason is a prolific horror producer and has worked on successful movies such as the ‘Paranormal Activity’ franchise, ‘Us’ and ‘The Invisible Man’ and explained that he looks at projects as “dramas with scary elements”.
He told Forbes.com:
I always look at horror as dramas with scary elements, as opposed to those executives who don’t like horror, they look at it as killing people with some story stuck between the kills. That’s why so much of horror is bad.
You’ve got to look at it the other way. Does the movie work as a drama if you took out the violence or took out the genre elements? It’s a litmus test, and we put most of our movies through that.
If you look at most of our movies, they will work without the violence. Many horror movies won’t, and they tend to be not so good.
The key to a great horror movie is the same as the key to any movie or show, and that is storytelling, not how you cut someone’s head off. The emphasis for us is storytelling as opposed to action sequences.
