'Us' and 'BlacKkKlansman' producer Jason Blum's plan to take over Hollywood is simple: stay independent

Producer Jason Blum is one of Business Insider's "100 people transforming business."

His production company, Blumhouse Productions, is responsible for some of the most profitable horror movies in the last decade, including recent hits "Glass" and "Us."

"The goal is to be independent so we can tell stories we want to tell without asking permission," Blum told Business Insider. "Happily, as each year goes by we get closer and closer to that."

Blumhouse is currently developing the limited series for Showtime on Fox News head Roger Ailes, starring Russell Crowe, and is in production on eight movies for Amazon Prime.

The rise of Jason Blum and his company, Blumhouse Productions, is one of the best underdog stories to come out of Hollywood in the last decade.
The producer began by pushing his way into the studio system by feeding it ultra-low-budget horror titles that resulted in huge box-office returns, like the "Paranormal Activity" and "Insidious" franchises. Now he's become one of the most bankable players in the business.
Whether it is "The Purge" or bringing the "Halloween" franchise back with the 2018 reboot, if a movie has the Blumhouse logo on it that means two things: It's made with a quality that goes far beyond its budget, and the movie is going to make at least double at the box office what it was made for (and sometimes a lot more than that).
