UNTITLED BLUMHOUSE FILM SERIES (EPIX)

STATUS:
currently in development (2021-2022 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE:
ordered to series
ADDITIONAL NOTES:

DESCRIPTION:
(from EPIX's press release, March 2021) Premium network EPIX(R) and Blumhouse today announced a new partnership, in which Jason Blum's television company will develop and produce eight elevated, standalone horror/genre-thriller movies exclusively for the network. Blum will serve as executive producer. The first film, A House on the Bayou, from writer/director Alex McAulay (Don't Tell A Soul), will commence production in late spring, with an eye towards a premiere on EPIX in December 2021. Casting is underway. The film follows a troubled couple and their preteen daughter who go on vacation to an isolated house in the Louisiana bayou to reconnect as a family. But when unexpected visitors arrive, their facade of family unity starts to unravel, as terrifying secrets come to light. The rest of the slate will debut in 2022. Building on the television company's success with the Welcome to the Blumhouse movies slate for Amazon and Into the Dark anthology series for Hulu, the deal is the first-of-its-kind for EPIX, which is adding films to its growing slate of premium original content (most recently, it exclusively debuted the critically-acclaimed horror-thriller St Maud).
