Jason Blum Sets the Record Straight on Not Safe for Work

Yesterday we told you that Joe Johnston's Not Safe for Work was going to be headed straight to video. The news came from an interview the La Times did with producer Jason Blum that made things sound kind of grim. Apparently that's not the case at all.

The original comment was as follows: "Some of my movies work, and some of them don't," Blum said. "I want to be able to say to the studio, 'We missed; let's go to VOD.'"

Bloody Disgusting got in touch with Blum, who clarified his remarks. He wasn’t addressing the quality of any film in particular, just whether one of his movies would work as a wide release. Moreover, in the above quote he was talking about his model and preference of options rather than directly addressing any specific movie or the quality of the film. And, for the record, he “thinks it's great.

‘Captain America’ Director Joe Johnston Signs For Thriller ‘Not Safe For Work’

‘Captain America’ Director Joe Johnston Signs For Thriller ‘Not Safe For Work’
Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston got a nice career boost thanks to the success of his WWII superhero movie, but surprisingly Johnston isn't moving right back into the big movie arena with his next project. He's just signed to direct a 'micro-budget' thriller called Not Safe For Work, which is produced by Blumhouse Pictures, which has a first-look deal with Universal. It sounds like quite a departure from making movies on the scale of Captain America, The Wolfman and Jurassic Park III. Adam Mason and Simon Boyes (The Devil's Chair) wrote Not Safe For Work, which THR [1] says is about "a young paralegal who is trapped in the office with a killer on a mission to destroy files for another corporation." This will be by far the smallest movie Johnston has made, with a budget of only $2.5m. It's an interesting choice for him, but the appeal
