Exclusive: Liv Tyler on The Strangers 2

And why she probably won’t be back

For a long time, there’s been talk of there being a sequel to Bryan Bertino’s 2008 horror movie The Strangers, which was delayed for years and then released, going on to be a substantial hit for Rogue Pictures. Tyler told us why she probably won’t be returning for The Strangers 2 despite rumors thinking otherwise:

“It’s strange. I’ve read the script. It’s been around the whole time, but I don’t know how real it is,” she said. “Bryan isn’t directing it, I don’t know what’s happened with it. I didn’t love the idea personally, but Bryan’s such a good writer. He had another project that I was obsessed with and fell I love with and kept trying to convince them to not do ‘The Strangers 2’ but ‘Let’s go straight into this thing and it can be ‘From the Makers of…’ ’cause it was such a great, also simple story but absolutely terrifying. Someone else has that now and they’ve actually changed it quite a bit. Who knows? Hollywood is so confusing.”
