The flick Sinister (review here) had the DC staff divided. Some liked it and some hated it, but either way it did great box office so a sequel could always be looming. In fact the first chatter has begun. Read on for the latest on the continuing adventures of Mr. Boogie.
SciFiNow caught up with director Scott Derrickson and co-writer C. Robert Cargill, who had this to say of the potential sequel…
“I certainly want to write the script and be involved with it as the producer – I would possibly direct the next one, we’ll see,” says Derrickson. “But I don’t see myself just handing the franchise over to just anybody and letting it go. If it goes on – then maybe – but I want to see it start its process on the right foot at least, and always have some say and have some involvement in it.”
Cargill added, “Before we finished the movie Scott and I had a discussion about the things we don’t want to do, and spitballed just a couple of things that we would like to do given the opportunity, but it’s all still theoretical stages – ‘Oh, hey, wouldn’t that be cool’ – everyone’s still waiting to see on the life cycle of the movie how everything pans out before everybody jumps up and says, ‘Yes! We must have a second one!’”
Stay tuned, and look for the original Sinister on Blu-ray and DVD in a couple of weeks.
