Creep To Become A Trilogy At Blumhouse
Duplass & Brice to return for more madness

Not one to miss the opportunity for a quirky ongoing low-budget franchise, Jason Blum - via his Blumhouse banner - has made a deal to spin a trilogy from the upcoming indie horror Creep. Mark Duplass and and Patrick Brice's indie festival hit wrings psychological weirdness from a two-character microcosm, but all involved are confident at the prospect of "expanding the Creep world".

Not to be confused with Christopher Smith's excellent London Underground scarefest from a decade ago, this Creep involves cameraman Brice accepting a too-good-to-be-true offer of $1000 to spend a day documenting the life of Duplass' mysterious Josef. The idea is that Josef doesn't have long to live, and wants to leave a My Life-style video legacy for his son. But as we get past the initial 24 hours it becomes clear that the real agenda is something altogether different.

Duplass and Brice co-wrote as well as starring, and Brice made his directorial debut with the film, which enjoyed an uproriously successful debut at SXSW last month. Both remain attached to whatever future shape the series takes.

“We jumped at the opportunity to work with Mark again and Jason's involvement was icing on the cake," said Tom Quinn and Jason Janego of distributors Radius in a joint statement. “Creep is wry and unnerving with a shock ending that one has come to expect from Blumhouse. The film played through the roof at SXSW and it was abundantly clear that audiences have a huge appetite for these characters."

“I'm a huge fan of the renegade tactics of Blumhouse and Radius, and I couldn't be more psyched to partner with them on this utterly insane new franchise,” says Duplass.

Release dates for the first Creep should be forthcoming shortly.
