Blumhouse Productions has found great success in mirco budget horror films like the Paranormal Activity franchise, Insidious (and the forthcoming sequel), and now they're looking at continuing the horrifying tale that began with Sinister. Director Scott Derrickson and writer C. Robert Cargill (formerly of Ain't It Cool News) were already reteaming for Deus Ex: Human Revolution for CBS Films, based on the 2011 video game of the same name but now they will also reunite for a sequel to the horror 2012 horror film which starred Ethan Hawke and grossed over $77 million worldwide on a small budget of just $3 million. Read on!
Deadline has the story, but there are currently no details on the cast or plot. However, for those who saw the first film (spoiler alert), we can pretty much guarantee that Hawke and his family won't be back. However, the story does lend itself to another family being terrified by the mysterious spooky figure and the children that come in tow after some twisted home videos are discovered. As of now, we're not sure when Sinister 2 will hit theaters, but there's a chance it could be in time for Halloween since it's a small budget film. If not, maybe it'll hit in early 2014. Stay tuned as the project develops.
