James Wan Would Love To Build A Malignant Cinematic Universe


While Wan might be the biggest name in horror right now (or if we’re being real, the last ten years), he did drive the point home that these movies don’t happen just because he has a cool idea. They happen because there’s a built-in audience out there begging for a little more Wan:

“Because I know the bigger world that the story takes place in, there are potentially other stories to tell, and that usually is dictated by what the audience wants. If they want more stories, then I have more stories to pull into it. That’s my approach, even all the way back to my first film with ‘Saw,’ is I do know the bigger world, like [writer] Leigh [Whannell] and I knew the bigger world, and if we were fortunate enough to tell other stories, we have stories ready to tell.”

See, didn’t I tell you that “Saw” basically is it’s own cinematic universe at this point? I mean, we’re really blurring the lines between a good old-fashioned franchise and a cinematic or extended universe at this point, but language is an ever-shifting beast and the Sawniverse is a much better name than calling it the “Saw” franchise. Regardless, Wan isn’t making any promises here, but he did end his thoughts on making more “Malignant” movies with a clear call to action:

“I joked that, for the fans out there that want more of the films, that they should start a groundswell movement. Start a hashtag of a Malignant sequel.”

You heard the man! Strap a dummy to your back, start committing mysterious crimes, and above all, don’t forget to tweet. The world needs more “Malignant.” 

My pitch for the sequel title is “M2lignant.” I know it’s bad and I don’t care. James, call me.
