There is a huge buzz around upcoming horror slasher FREAKY that’s stars Vince Vaughan that puts a horror spin on the Disney Classic Freaky Friday (hence the title).
Director Christopher Landon who has a habit of putting the terror into familar films having turned Groundhog Day into the crowd pleasing Happy Death Day, which spawned a sequel.
The Slasher has a hard-core fan base but while the original done well at the box office, the sequel failed to gain the numbers for Blumhouse to consider a third and final film to end the trilogy.
Landon again has been talking about the possibility of there being a final film and this is what he had to say.
“It’s definitely off to the side at the moment. I wish it wasn’t, and I know that [Jason Blum, producer] is passionate about it, I know I’m very passionate about it, and I know that [Jessica Rothe is really eager to do it as well. I wrote the idea for the third movie some time ago. I think we’re all excited by it, because it’s different than the other two films, and so we’re really just crossing our fingers and hoping that our fanbase continues to grow – which is something that I’ve really enjoyed watching over the years, seeing more and more people discover both films. So who knows. There might be a time when it makes sense, and hopefully it’s sooner rather than later.”
He also revealed that the working title for the film would be Happy Death Day To Us and he gave a hint on what to expect.
“The idea for the third film is not set in the same day, if that’s a big spoiler. So it can happen later. We’re not up against a really difficult clock right now. The other movies were hard, because they were set in the exact same day, so everybody had to look the same, be the same. The pressure is off there.”
At this moment Blumhouse have no plans to ever make a third film, but we do live in hope, as if somehow Bill and Ted managed to achieve it…..you never know!
