Jason Blum, better known as the man behind indie horror success Blumhouse Productions (The Purge, Insidious, the Halloween reboot-sequel-whatever-that-was written by Danny McBride), recently posted about a productive lunch with Glenn Beck.
Beck also had a great time!
Met with studio executive/mega disrupter @jason_blum (Blumhouse) at @artsdeli - I think Jason is one of the most genuine decent guys I know. I think of him as a brave friend, Especially with today’s Hollywood blacklists. Look for us to partner on ‘good’. https://t.co/1QkDm8MjYI— Glenn Beck (@glennbeck) September 4, 2019
In unrelated news, last month Blumhouse/Universal indefinitely pulled their new horror-thriller The Hunt from their upcoming slate after open criticism from conservatives, among them Donald Trump.
(Blumhouse/Universal cited real life gun violence as the reason for the movie’s jeopardized release status, yet curiously did not pull any of its many other movies resplendent with guns and/or violence.)
Hollywood has yet to comment*.
(*Notoriously outspoken Hollywood Activist, Lexi Alexander - who recently signed a movie deal with Blumhouse - did post on Twitter telling people to stop messaging her about Jason Blum, then deleted all comments before deleting the post itself.)
who in hollywood is announcing their enrollment in clown college next, ontd?
