Fear Street’s director wants another trilogy and it to be the MCU of horror
Here’s what Leigh Janiak had to say about the upcoming Fear Street films during her interview with IndieWire:
One of the exciting things about Fear Street is the fact that the universe is big and allows for a lot of space. One of the things that I talked about before I was hired was that we have a potential here to create a horror Marvel [Cinematic Universe], where you can have slasher killers from lots of different eras. You have the canon of our main mythology that’s built around the fact that the devil lives in Shadyside, so there’s also room for everything else.
Janiak then went on to add:
I think that my hope is that audiences like it enough that we can start building out [more], we can think about what another trilogy would be, what stand-alones would be, what TV would be,” Janiak continued. “I don’t even think about it like TV or movies exactly anymore. That’s the great thing about Netflix and about what ‘Fear Street’ is, which is kind of a hybrid new thing. I’m excited about the possibility of what else can happen.” She added, “I really started getting excited about a ’50s slasher movie, which I haven’t really seen and what that means … It’s just cool to think about the different eras and what’s possible as a horror fan.
