Additionally, Blumhouse Productions is doubling down on Dillard’s screenplays with “Sleight”‘s follow-up “Sweetheart,” a horror film starring “Dope” actress Kiersey Clemons. “Sweetheart” is currently in pre-production and does not have a release date.
If that weren’t enough for the production company, Blumhouse is also preparing, as Shadow and Act report, an original time-travel thriller entitled “Only You,” written and directed by Jacob Estes (the Tobey Maguire film “The Details” and 2004’s “Mean Creek.” The film’s plot, starring David Oyelowo, is being kept under wraps but will mark the first time that Oyelowo has worked with Blumhouse or Estes. Oyelowo’s next film, the newest ‘Cloverfield’ spin-off (previously titled “God Particle,”) will be released on October 27th of this year.
