Prepare to be unsettled and creeped out all over again as Mr Boogie is set to return next year! Focus Features have announced an August 21st 2015 release date for their upcoming horror sequel, Sinister 2. It has not been confirmed if this US release date covers the UK as well, but usually we follow a US horror release date shortly after.
Sinister 2, the follow-up to last year’s pic that grossed more than $87M worldwide on of a $3M budget, will arrive August 21, 2015. Citadel‘s Ciaran Foy will helm the next chapter, which Sinister director Scott Derrickson is writing with C. Robert Cargill.
The new franchise follows Blumhouse’s success with the Paranormal Activity and Insidious series of ultra-low-budget genre hits. eOne is financing the sequel, with Derrickson and Jason Blum producing.
According to a report on the Chicago Tribune, Sinister 2 is gearing up to begin production and shoot entirely on location in Chicago. The shoot begins in August, and is expected to last for one month.
No plot details have yet been revealed, but a casting advert on Simon Casting on Facebook for the film requested “We’re looking for girls, ages 8-12, who speak Norwegian for a role in a horror feature film. … The project begins shooting in mid-August in Chicago.” Says the site, the Illinois Film Office’s Betsy Steinberg confirmed the ad is for Sinister 2.
