Jason Blum is officially coming to New York Comic Con 2023 to talk about all things Blumhouse Productions – the team behind horror blockbuster hits such as M3GAN and the already in-profit Five Nights at Freddy’s movie – and CoveredGeekly will be there to cover the whole thing LIVE.
Blumhouse likes to keep busy but their plate has never been fuller with projects such as the recently releases Exorcist: Believer, M3GAN 2, and the aforementioned FNAF movie – the live-action adaptation based on the incredibly popular video game series known to millions worldwide.
It’s safe to assume that Blum has plenty to talk about, especially when considering the fact that Five Nights at Freddy’s is only weeks away from dropping in theatres and on Peacock, it’s fair to expect something FNAF-related, among other things.
