James Wan On Blumhouse And Universal: The most enormous horror universes that fans simply can’t get enough of are thanks to legendary horror filmmaker and producer James Wan. Wan is one of the pioneers of contemporary horror thanks to his work on films like Malignant in 2021 and the cult classic Insidious, which will get its fifth iteration in 2023. Wan sat down with Collider’s own horror expert Alyse Wax on the press tour for M3GAN, his upcoming collaboration with Jason Blum, to discuss the killer doll as well as his other upcoming projects.
Back in November, while Wan and Blum were finalising their agreement, Wax understandably seized the chance to inquire about their new venture and any intellectual property Blum may have that Wan could be interested in utilising for upcoming projects. Wan was excited to be able to explore a vast array of IP as part of their new agreement, despite having to keep their future collaboration’s specifics very quiet.

Blumhouse And Universal Ip James Wan Could Explore
Blum stated, “James is probably 70 to 80 percent artist and 30 to 20 percent business person, and I am the converse,” in reference to how well his and Wan’s creative approaches complement one another. The Halloween reboot trilogy, Mike Flanagan classics like Ouija: Origin of Evil and Hush, the Paranormal Activity franchise, and many more are among the legendary horror films produced by Blumhouse.
Blum was keen to downplay his personal role as an innovator. Blum was a producer on the original Insidious film, so this is not Wan and Blum’s first time working together. Nevertheless, it will be intriguing to see what these two horror industry titans can do with their combined expertise.
It might be time for a fresh take on old monsters like Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon now that the pair are established at Universal. Additionally, Wan would be a welcome addition to any upcoming Happy Death Day sequels.
The movie M3GAN is slated to premiere on January 6, 2023. With The Nun 2 scheduled for release on September 8 and The Conjuring 4 probably starting production at some point in 2023, Wan is also expanding the Conjuring universe.
