Back in 2012 we were introduced to the Horror film SINISTER which was co-written and directed by Scott Derrickson. The movie did well, raking in $87 million as it presented us with Mr. Boogie, an evil being that haunts and destroys families to consume children's souls. As far as the anticipated sequel goes we have some casting news in the form of a revealing synopsis for the project.
“In the aftermath of the shocking events in Sinister, a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon of Wayward Pines) and her 9-year-old twin sons (real-life twins Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death. James Ransone, who portrayed the concerned sheriff’s deputy in Sinister, will be reprising his character in Sinister 2.”
Scott Derrickson will still be involved in the sequel as he is once again co-writing the screenplay with C. Robert Cargill. The two worked together prior on the first film. Derrickson will also be producing along with Jason Blum. Derrickson has said that the sequel will be non predictable as well as fresh and unexpected.
It was recently revealed that Ciaran Foy will be taking on the directing duties of SINISTER 2. Shooting will officially begin next week in Chicago. Focus Features set a release date for August 21, 2015.
