There’s ‘No Movement At All’ On Happy Death Day 3, But We Refuse To Give Up Hope [Exclusive]

The world has felt … off for the past few years, hasn’t it? The way I see it, there’s only one possible explanation for that feeling: We haven’t gotten a third “Happy Death Day” movie yet. When I asked Landon if there was any movement on a possible third entry, he gave it to me straight and laid out the economics of why one hasn’t happened yet:

No movement at all, sadly. There was a tiny moment where I really felt like I had Universal’s attention, but they forgot about me. [laughs] I think it’s a really tough one for them, and I’m being really blunt and honest in that the first movie was very successful. It made a lot of money. It was well-received. And the sequel was not. The sequel is loved by people who have seen it, but it did not make a lot of money, and it was not a success for them. So it’s very hard to motivate them to make a third movie when the last one just didn’t perform. Those are the hard economics of the business.

So I don’t know what it would take. There was talk for a minute of it maybe being a Peacock thing. Maybe. Maybe one day. The beauty of it is that my idea, the whole idea for the third movie, it is not dependent on any sort of specific window or timeframe. So I could make it any time, but I mean, as the years draw past, I feel like our chances are dimming.”
