Blumhouse Television is set to produce eight standalone films for Epix in a new deal. The first Blumhouse and EPIX film will be A House on the Bayou.
The film comes to us from Don’t Tell a Soul writer and director Alex McAulay. It’s set to start production late in the Spring and is looking at a December 2021 release.
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 next seven films will reportedly be produced by Jason Blum and are set to debut in 2022.
“Blumhouse’s track record of producing high-quality, audience-favorite films have made them a driving force in the horror genre renaissance, and have been top-notch partners for EPIX,” said Michael Wright, president, Epix. “We can’t wait to work with Jason Blum and his talented team in this new capacity, and make Epix the exclusive home of more Blumhouse content.”
“This partnership with EPIX is an additional opportunity for us to collaborate with a great team in helping them grow their slate of genre films, while continuing to bring Blumhouse fans the kind of programming they know and love,” added Chris McCumber, President Blumhouse Television.
