The word “visionary” gets thrown around a lot in the entertainment industry, but Jason Blum is truly one of Hollywood’s most visionary film producers. Over the past twelve years, he popularized a business model that slashes filmmaking costs, gives directors the type of creative control they often don’t find elsewhere, and rakes in serious profits if the movie proves to be a hit.

Aided by the recent success of David Gordon Green’s new Halloween movie, Blumhouse has officially crossed the $4 billion mark at the global box office. Read on for some of Blum’s thoughts about possible sequels to Halloween and Get Out.

Variety - Reports - Blumhouse - Worldwide - Milestone

Variety reports that Blumhouse has earned more than $4 billion worldwide. That’s a big milestone for a company that makes movies with budgets under $5 million.

Blum changed the game with 2007’s Paranormal Activity, the found footage horror film made for around $15,000. It ended up grossing more than $193 million and helped shaped Blumhouse’s policy of keeping production budgets low and waiting for huge box office numbers to roll in. Blum is well known for producing horror films like Insidious, The Purge, Sinister, Unfriended, The Visit, Split, and Get Out, but he and Blumhouse have also been involved with some terrific non-horror stuff as well: films like Whiplash and BlacKkKlansman, and television shows like The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst and this year’s Sharp Objects.
