Blumhouse's Jason Blum: TV showrunners make the best directors for our movies
The producer of low-budget horror films like Get Out and The Purge, who is also producing HBO's Sharp Objects, tells indiewire of why he prefers hiring from TV: “The best directors for us, for our movies, are showrunners. Better than the man or woman who had the hottest movie at Sundance or the greatest resume or anything else, the best prototype to direct a Blumhouse movie is a showrunner.” That's because TV shows prepare directors to be flexible while making the most of their time on set. “Showrunners are used to our pace in the movie business,” says Blum. “We have a somewhat TV-pace in (our) movies, but also the movies are much more successful if the director writes, because you can do stuff on the fly, and the showrunner has a kind-of producer mentality.”
