Well, this is interesting. Along with our first look at The Last Exorcism 2 and The Woman in Black: Angel of Death at AFM today, some early word on Bait 2 came our way. Talk about a Halloween gift!
The Last Exorcism 2: Ed Gass-Donnelly is directing from a script written by him and Damien Chazelle. Ashley Bell returns as Nell, as does Louis Herthum, reprising his role as her father, Louis Sweetzer. Other cast members include Spencer Treat Clark, Muse Watson, E. Roger Mitchell, Andrew Sensenig, Judd Lormand, Julia Garner, Raeden Greer, David Jensen, and Joe Chrest. The sequel follows Nell (Bell), who, six months after the first film’s events, has moved to a halfway house, only to realize that the demon that has ruined her life is still after her! The sequel takes an interesting romantic approach that’s spun around Nell’s new boyfriend, Chris (Clark). A subplot is that Bell is also targeted by a group of rogue reverends who mean to kill her. The twist is said to be something never before seen in an exorcism film.
The Woman in Black: Angel of Death: Tom Harper (The Scouting Book for Boys, Misfits) will direct The Woman in Black: Angel of Death from screenwriter Jon Croker (Desert Dancer), based on an original story by Susan Hill (The Woman in Black). It will continue the story of the original four decades later.
As bombs rain down on London during the Blitz of World War II, a group of schoolchildren are evacuated with Eve, their young and beautiful schoolteacher, to the safety of the English countryside. Taken to an old and empty estate, cut off by a causeway from the mainland, they are left at Eel Marsh House. One by one the children begin acting strangely, and Eve, with the help of local military commander Harry, discovers that the group has awoken a dark force even more terrifying and evil than the city’s air raids. Eve must now confront her own demons to save the children and survive THE WOMAN IN BLACK.
Bait 2: This is the first we’ve heard about the sequel, which looks to move the action from Australia to Los Angeles. To save you from squinting to read the synopsis on the sales art, we’ve retyped it below:
It’s just another perfect day in the City of Angels. That is, until a three-mile long, 100-foot tsunami completely obliterates Los Angeles, not only destroying it, but effectively wiping it from the map. However, for five students in a private school, on detention and missing out on a class trip, they turn out to be the lucky ones…
…or are they?
Because before the day is through, they will have to battle a tidal wave, the elements, each other, atershocks, and, worst of all, a 15-foot Great White Shark that has decided to make the school they are trapped in its new hunting ground. With the water constantly rising, fraying tempers, nowhere for them to go, and one of nature’s perfect sea creatures actively pursuing them, they are about to be taught a lesson in survival.
