Blumhouse does pretty well for itself. I don’t think it’s a surprise to anyone that I say that. They seem to be the most consistent at creating movies on a dime and bringing in the mountains of cash at the box office. It’s a strategy that’s worked for horror for decades, and it’s one they’ve been capitalizing on for years. One of the notable successes was the horror/comedy/thriller Happy Death Day.
A couple years later, a sequel release released in the form of Happy Death Day 2U, and in spite of being generally well-received, only took in about half of the $125.5 million that the original in, making it something of a disappointment, even if it was profitable.
As such, there has been no sequel confirmed yet, but apparently, there are rumors that a threequel is on the way. However, director Christopher Landon took to Twitter to set the record straight.
“Since I keep reading stuff about it, I’ll say it loud: THERE IS NO HAPPY DEATH DAY 3 IN DEVELOPMENT. It’s just a rumor…unless @netflix wants to pony-up and finish this trilogy, it just ain’t happening.”

While Happy Death Day 2U wrapped up a lot of loose ends, there are still some questions about the dimension-hopping logic that I want to see addressed, so if they could actually get on a sequel (come on, Netflix), that’d be greeeeaaaat…
