We’re receiving word today that Focus Features has set an August 21, 2015 release date for Sinister 2, the sequel to the 2012 horror film directed by Scott Derrickson.
Ciaran Foy (Citadel) is helming this entry overseen by Blumhouse Productions.
Derrickson penned the scripts with C. Robert Cargill. Plot details are still not being revealed, however, when we spoke to Derrickson earlier this year, he told us:
It’s a completely different approach. The script was so hard to write because Cargill and I were determined to do a sequel that we wanted to see. And what we weren’t going to do was, hey, another family, another box…same formula. Sinister 2 takes a different point of view, literally. When you see a sequel, you want to see an expanding mythology and an expanding point of view. It’s very hard to do, but because we love the genre and seen so many horror franchises – mostly inferior ones – we’re taking our best shot at making a worthy sequel.
