Lesley Chen of Fox Home Entertainment provided us with a plot synopsis and casting news for the company’s sequel to last year’s Alexandre Aja-helmed Mirrors. Titled Mirrors 2 and directed by Victor (Return to House on Haunted Hill) Garcia from a script by Matt (White Noise 2) Venne, the planned direct-to-DVD film is currently shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and stars Nick Stahl, William Katt, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Lawrence Turner, Stephanie Honore, Christy Charlson Romano, Jon Michael Davis, Evan Jones, Wayne Pere, Lance E. Nichols, Ann McKenzie, and Jennifer Sipes.
The official plot synopsis is as follows: “When Max (Stahl), a recovering addict, takes a job as a night-time security guard job at his father’s department store, he begins to see visions of a young woman in the store’s mirrors. Unsure whether his visions are side effects of his prescription sleeping pills or actual reality, he begins to look deeper into the source of the images in the mirrors. When employees of the store turn up dead and Max is a suspect in the murders, he must expose the girl’s connection to a scandal within the department store’s walls in order to prove his innocence and put a stop to the spirits in the mirrors.”
This scribe will be on-set during the coming week for what are apparently intended to be some rather gory f/x scenes featuring actor Jon Michael Davis, so stay tuned to Dread Central for coverage from Baton Rouge.
