Last year, the horror genre unleashed a gift upon the world with Get Out. From the mind of Jordan Peele, the movie arrived at the perfect time, and captured the attention of millions of people. While horror has been experiencing a renaissance of high quality and big box office dollars over the last few years, Get Out was something special, and achieved something few horror movies have ever done: it won an Oscar. Needless to say, this thing was a monster and Blumhouse loves monsters. Super producer Jason Blum recently teased that he'd love to make Get Out 2, but it's all in Jordan Peele's court.
If Jordan wants to do a sequel, I'll do it in a second, but it has to come from Jordan Peele. I think he's flirting with the idea.
Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions are responsible for some of the most successful horror movies of the last few years, having had a hand in franchises such as The Purge, Insidious, and Paranormal Activity. The company has produced seven films so far this year, with five more set to release in theaters. With The First Purge releasing next month and the highly anticipated Halloween revival arriving in October, everything's going alright for Blumhouse, but it would be more than happy to return to its massive social horror thriller, Get Out.
Jason Blum told Variety that he'd be completely down to make a sequel to Get Out, but it's not really his call. Get Out was the brainchild of Jordan Peele and he's a big part of what made the movie so good. It didn't win the Academy Award for Best Screenplay for nothing. If there's going to be a sequel, it comes down to if Peele wants to make one, and if he has a strong enough idea.
For what it's worth, Jordan Peele has spoken a bit on whether he'd like to make a sequel. The writer-director once said that he "will definitely seriously consider it," and that he feels that there could be more story to tell. As what that story could be, well there were a few loose ends. It's implied that there are more crazy people out there trying to steal people's bodies, so a sequel could potentially explore something about that.
On the other hand, Get Out feels pretty complete. The story has a beginning, middle, and ending, and it's not like it leaves fans to wonder what happens to Chris (Daniel Kaluuya). He managed to escape his terrible situation to live another day, which is more than some horror leads can say.
Will Get Out 2 happen? We can't say for sure now, but stick with CinemaBlend and we'll keep you updated with more information as it becomes available.
