The Happy Death Day movies have built a loyal fan base with their quirky, Groundhog Day-as-horror premise. The success of the first film resulted in a quick turn around on a sequel, and that sequel left things open for another entry. However, fans hoping for another Happy Death Day movie happening soon may need to readjust expectations. Blumhouse studio chief Jason Blum says that a Happy Death Day 3 probably won't happen. In response to a fan question on Twitter asking how likely a third entry was, Blum said...

Not very but not impossible

Obviously, this isn't the response that fans of the Happy Death Day movies want to hear, and it's somewhat surprising considering the way the second film was green lit so quickly.

While Jason Blum doesn't go into detail in his Twitter response, you don't have to go too far to figure out why the third film is so unlikely. Happy Death Day 2U completely crashed at the box office, especially when compared to the original. The first film made $55 million in North America and $125 million around the world. The sequel's domestic box office dropped by more than half and the global numbers look even worse.

Having said that, Happy Death Day 2U numbers aren't all bad news. The film only cost a reported $9 million to make so even the less than stellar numbers mean the movie almost certainly made money, Hollywood accounting notwithstanding. With Blumhouse's famously low budgets, the sequel probably made enough money to pay for the budget on a third film at the very least.

Of course, one has to take into account that this could be a trend, and if it is, it would be bad news for a third film. Happy Death Day 2U, cost nearly double what the first movie did and brought in a fraction of the ticket sales. A third film, would, almost be necessity, cost more than the second one, and if the box office on that one dropped compared to part two, then the possibility that it won't make money, even though the first two films did ok, is very real.

Still, fans shouldn't give up hope completely as Jason Blum says a third film is not impossible. If it becomes clear that there really is enough of a fan base interested in part three, and a way to keep the budget down can be found, Blumhouse could still green light the project. If the studio thinks the movie will make money, the movie will happen, this is a business after all.

One thing that does seem for certain, however, is that fans should not expect a Happy Death Day 3 to see the same quick turn around that part two did. The sequel coming out so quickly didn't help ticket sales, so the studio will likely take its time with another entry
