The "Happy Death Day" franchise from Christopher Landon may never become a trilogy, and the filmmaker is already moving on to new ground.
Landon will write and direct a new horror/thriller for Blumhouse Productions, with Jason Blum to produce, according to Discussing Film (and confirmed by Bloody Disgusting).
The plot details are vague, but the story will reportedly focus on a killer who wreaks havoc in a small town. Production will possibly begin in October in Atlanta, Georgia.
Landon is known for writing the scripts for the second, third and fourth "Paranormal Activity" movies, as well as writing and directing "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones."
