Said Jason Blum, “I’m thrilled to welcome Scott, Cargill, and Sherryl into the Blumhouse family, to work with us in television...We have had a lot of success collaborating in film, and they’ve brought some great material in to develop that we can’t wait to get in front of fans.”
Crooked Highway is also producing Derrickson’s recently announced, upcoming film The Black Phone, alongside the features team at Blumhouse, for Universal Pictures. The film is based on a short story by Joe Hill that was adapted by Derrickson and Cargill. Earlier this year, Derrickson and Cargill served as executive producers of the film My Valentine, written and directed by Maggie Levin, which was part of Blumhouse Television’s Into the Dark anthology series for Hulu. Crooked Highway will also be producing Levin's Retrograde, a sci-fi time-manipulation thriller.
