JASON BLUM, founder of Blumhouse Productions, is a two-time Academy Award nominated and two-time Emmy Award-winning producer known for pioneering a new model of studio filmmaking: producing high-quality, micro-budget films.
The company’s films range from the Academy Award-winning Get Out and Whiplash to the the highly-profitable The Purge, Paranormal Activity and Insidious franchises, to this summer’s widely-praised BlacKkKlansman.
Blum’s highly-anticipated Halloween debuts in theaters on October 19, 2018.
His work in television includes Sharp Objects, The Jinx, The Normal Heart and The Purge 10-episode television event for USA Network.
Production begins in November on Blumhouse Television’s limited series for Showtime based on the best-selling book The Loudest Voice in the Room, which chronicles the career of fallen Fox News Chief Roger Ailes with Russel Crowe as Ailes.
Blum is a member of the Sundance Institute’s Director’s Advisory Group and serves on the Board of the Public Theater and the Board of Trustees for Vassar College.
He began his career as the producing director of the Malaparte Theater Company, which was founded by Ethan Hawke.
