Cinema Blend reports that production company Blumhouse Productions and producer Jason Blum talked about future collaborations with Miramax after the success of 2018’s Halloween reboot. According to Blum, future collaborations could include the revivals of both the Scream and Hellraiser horror film franchises. However, no deals have been made as of yet to revive the two horror franchises.

Previously, Miramax CEO Bill Block stated that both Scream and Hellraiser are “part of the new program” similar to what happened with Halloween. Earlier this month, Jason Blum later told Cinema Blend, “Yes, we definitely have [discussed it]. We’re looking – there’s nothing happening with either one of those things – but we’re definitely looking at it, and it’s definitely something I’d be open to.”

The 2018 Halloween reboot made $159 million at the domestic box office and $254 million worldwide off a $10 million budget. With that, it’s easy to see why Miramax and Blumhouse would possibly want to collaborate by trying something similar with Scream and Hellraiser.

The latest iteration of Scream was the 2015 MTV series that aired for two seasons. The latest installment for Hellraiser was Hellraiser: Judgement, which was released last year.
