Director Christopher Landon’s latest foray into horror / comedy, Freaky, bears many similarities to his earlier efforts Happy death anniversaryThe star of the latter now believes the best way for both franchises to collide is to let them collide. Jessica Rothe, who plays the main character “Tree” in both films Happy death anniversary Series, considers it possible that a crossover of Freaky and Happy Death Day will come together on the big screen, given the mixed magic and science fiction mythology of the two franchise companies.
“I think this is the way to go because like you said, [Kathryn Newton’s Butcher in Freaky] embodies so much strength, power, and twisted malice in this role. I was so lucky to see it on the opening weekend and it has such funny, wild gigs from Kathryn and Vince [Vaughn]. So I agree with you that it absolutely has to be a showdown between Tree and Millie. And maybe Vince can make a cameo as the Scream Queen for giving us Scream Queens a run for our money. He did a really good job. “
The curvy plots and use of science fiction tropes as well as the similarity in tone and subversion of expectations in both areas Happy death anniversary and Freaky would certainly allow Landon to bring the two worlds together, should he so wish. It’s the director’s ability to undermine the expected that Rothe loves, with the actress fully on board, should Landon ever decide to throw Tree and Freaky’s Blissfield Butcher together.
“But that’s exactly what I love about Chris’ work; he undermines things like that. Who ever thought Vince Vaughn would be the next great scream queen? He found a lot of truth, honesty and vulnerability. Those are colors that I have Vince Never seen Vaughn before, and that’s one of the things I love about Genre Bendy movies. There’s a lot more permission for actors to step out of the boxes socialmediagossips are used to. “

Should the two franchise companies remain separate, Jessica Rothe also stated that she is ready to sign up Happy Death Day 3, no matter how long it takes. “I think it’s just a matter of whether the world can do that,” the actress said last year. “But the funny thing is, I have a feeling, whether it’s now or five or ten or twenty years from now, if we pull a Jamie Lee Curtis from Halloween and Tree comes back a 50-year-old badass, I know we’re going to get it to tell the rest of the story. I love Tree, I love this character so much, and I’m very, very grateful to be a part of it. “
