Epix, Blumhouse’s ‘A House on the Bayou’ Begins Filming in New Orleans

A House on the Bayou, the first in an eight-film venture between Epix and Blumhouse, has officially begun production in New Orleans.

The film’s official synopsis reads:

A House on the Bayou follows a troubled couple (Paul Schneider, Tales from the Loop and Angela Sarafyan, Westworld) and their teenage daughter (Lia McHugh, The Eternals) who go on vacation to an isolated house in the Louisiana bayou to reconnect as a family. But when unexpected visitors arrive, their facade of family unity starts to unravel, as terrifying secrets come to light. The cast also features Jacob Lofland (Maze Runner) in a lead role, and Doug Van Liew (Ida Red) and Lauren Richards (Doom Patrol) in supporting roles.

The film is written and directed by Alex McAulay (Don’t Tell a Soul). Jason Blum, Chris McCumber, and Jeremy Gold serve as producers on the project under the Blumhouse banner along with Mary-Margaret Kunze.

This new production deal with Epix follows the thus-far successful similar arrangement Blumhouse TV made with Amazon to produce Welcome to the Blumhouse. That deal also features eight films co-produced between the two entities. They premiered the first four films including Black Box and The Lie last year.

A House on the Bayou is slated to premiere on Epix in the latter part of 2021. There is no definite word on what films will follow in this series between Blumhouse and the premium network.
