A couple of really blurry images have appeared on Instagram from Blumhouse Productions and eOne’s Sinister 2, the sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit horror movie Sinister. Barry Lee Caldwell, script supervisor on the film, leaked out the two photos from the set in Chicago.
Ciaran Foy (Citadel) is directing Sinister 2, which Focus Features will release nationwide domestically on Friday, August 21, 2015. Scott Derrickson, director of Sinister, penned the Sinister 2 screenplay with C. Robert Cargill, with whom he also wrote the original film.
eOne is financing Sinister 2, and Jason Blum of Blumhouse, who produced the earlier movie, is producing it with Derrickson. Charles Layton, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, and eOne’s Xavier Marchand and Patrice Theroux are executive producers on Sinister 2.
In the aftermath of the shocking events in Sinister, a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon; pictured above) and her 9-year-old twin sons (real-life twins Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death. James Ransone, who portrayed the concerned sheriff’s deputy in Sinister, is reprising his character in Sinister 2.
Sinister, which starred Ethan Hawke, was released domestically by Summit Entertainment, a Lionsgate company, in 2012 and earned over $48 million; the movie’s worldwide gross was $82 million. Focus is additionally the U.S. distributor on Insidious: Chapter 3, which is currently in production and which the company is also making with Blumhouse and eOne.
