Jessica Rothe Talks ‘Back to the Future’-Esque ‘Happy Death Day’ Sequel



Happy Death Day

If things work out right, we could see a future sequel to Christopher Landon’s 2017 slasher horror flick Happy Death Day, says the film’s star Jessica Rothe in a recent interview with the folks at Collider.

In a snippet from the interview below, Rothe reveals that Landon described it to her as a Back to the Future-Esque, comely-horror sequel.

He did. It’s great! I like it because a lot of times with horror movies, if there’s a sequel, it’s almost a repeat, with different actors and slightly different storylines, but it worked, so you do the same thing again. Chris has done this incredible thing where the sequel, the way he described it to me, elevates the movie from being a horror movie – and I wouldn’t even say it’s just a horror movie because it’s a horror, comedy, rom-com drama – into a Back to the Future type of genre film where the sequel joins us right from where we left off, it explains a lot of things in the first one that didn’t get explained, and it elevates everything. I was really pleased to know that we weren’t just gonna be pushing all the buttons that people loved the first time, over and over again, ‘cause I think that gets old. I’m really excited to see if it comes to fruition and, if it does, what the final product looks like. I hope we get to do it! I had a ball!

Fingers crossed that one day Happy Death Day 2 will become a reality. Rothe sounds confident, and we sure hope it happens. If Dark Universe hear anything in the coming weeks/months, we promise you’ll be the first to know.
