In 2017, Happy Death Day became one of the most famous slasher movies to be released and after a break, the franchise is back with its third installment.
Lovers of the slasher genre rejoice as the third installment of Happy Death Day is officially in the works with Blumhouse production. The 2017 movie was a huge success as the movie earned $125.5 million worldwide on a $4.8 million budget. The sequel of the movie, 'Happy Death Day 2U' also earned respectively well. Even though the movie earned a humble $64 million, but the movie was made on a budget of $9 million, so this is still a healthy profit for the studio and it seems it’s enough to push ahead with yet another movie for the franchise.
It is not really surprising news to find out that the franchise is going for a third movie. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Christopher Landon said, "I always imagined this as a trilogy,” he said. “So I have the third movie, but it’s just a question of whether this one does well. I would love to make the third one. I think it’s a really bonkers, fun idea."
Even though Blumhouse productions are yet to make this news official, the sources close to a news outlet confirmed that the third sequel is definitely in the works. Given the fact that Landon already had the third sequel in mind, there is no reason to think that he won't get a chance to complete the series.
After all, even though the second movie was not as successful as the first movie, the sequel definitely proved that being it is a hilarious horror flick, bursting with a live-or-let-die attitude and most of the critics enjoyed it. Perhaps, it was not as enjoyable as the first movie, but there is certainly a lot left in the plot to make a third story out of it and the fans definitely have no problem with the Blumhouse Production releasing one last film in the series.
