Veteran horror producer Jason Blum, owner of Blumhouse Productions, back in 2018 produced an Australian film Upgrade, directed by Leigh Whannell and starring Logan Marshall-Green.
TV series that will work as a sequel to the movie was in development for a while now, and now, as reported by Collider, Blum gave us a promising update:
“Upgrade should have been a wide release. I was p*ssed about that. We’re working on a TV show. So working on the scripts. This first round didn’t come out. I didn’t get the response I wanted to get. I don’t want to be in development. I want an order. We’re working on the scripts again, so that we can get an order. And I don’t want to develop it.”
We can see that Blum is determined to make this show real, wanting nothing other than a direct series order. We wish him all the good luck.
Written and directed by Leigh Whannell, Upgrade was released in 2018, starring Logan Marshall-Green, Harrison Gilbertson, Benedict Hardie, and Betty Gabriel. The movie earned $17 million against the budget of $3 million. The movie was praised by critics for its action sequences and dark humor.
We still don-t know much about the TV series except for what Blum just said, although it’s been revealed that the series will take place a few years after the movie. It is unknown how will the series handle the cliffhanger the movie left.
Leigh Whannell and Tim Walsh are co-creators of the show. It is unknown to which network the show will be made.
