Director Christopher Landon said a Freaky sequel is unlikely but would like to see a project with Millie’s character alongside Happy Death Day’s Tree.
Director Christopher Landon shared his thoughts on a Freaky sequel, explaining why he thinks the project is unlikely to happen and why he’s “quite comfortable” with that.
“In terms of a sequel to Freaky, you know, I don’t think it’s ever gonna happen, because I honestly don’t know if the studio has an appetite for a sequel,” Landon told Comingsoon.net.
“I think they’re quite comfortable with it being a standalone movie,” Landon added, referring to Blumhouse. “And to be honest, I am too, because we didn’t really have an idea for a sequel. It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, this has to be the continuation of this story,'” he said.

The Freaky director then compared this film to his successful Happy Death Day film franchise, saying, “The Happy Death Day movies, they kind of had a whole life after that, but you never know.” While Landon shot down hopes for a direct Freaky sequel, he mentioned he’d like to work again with Millie’s character joining Happy Death Day‘s Tree in a future film. “You never know what can happen,” he said. “I would love to see, you know, Millie and Tree [actor Jessica Rothe] in a movie together. But I just don’t know what that movie is.”
Rothe previously stated how much she enjoyed Freaky and her shared interest in seeing her character Tree in a film with Millie/The Butcher. “It has such fun, wild performances from both Kathryn and Vince [Vaughn],” the actor said. “It totally needs to be a showdown of Tree versus Millie. And maybe Vince can make a cameo as a scream queen because he gave us scream queens a run for our money.”
Happy Death Day and Happy Death Day 2U were both directed by Christopher Landon, who would go on to write and direct Freaky. Since Freaky‘s debut, Landon stated that the films exist in “the same spiritual universe.” He added, “I think I could easily see [both movies’ lead characters] Tree and Millie getting together and being like, ‘Well, you won’t believe what happened to me!’ Because I think that tonally they’re connected, I think thematically they’re connected in a weird way.”
Directed by Christopher Landon, Freaky stars Vince Vaughn, Kathryn Newton, Celeste O’Connor, Misha Oshervich, Uriah Shelton, Alan Ruck, Katie Finneran and Dana Drori. The film is currently available on VOD.
