Things are looking good for Bryan Bertino. The writer/director of “>The Strangers (review) has just signed a deal with Rogue Pictures, Focus Features’ genre arm, to bring them two more thrillers in the coming years according to Variety. A Strangers sequel is not part of the deal.
The first will be a film simply called Black, which the trade describes as a character-driven thriller with supernatural elements. Michael Connolly’s Mad Hatter Entertainment will produce.
The other film is Alone, a project Rogue’s been working on for a while now. Bertino will take a pass at the script and may direct if he likes it enough. I have to say it’s pretty rare so many choices are given to a first-time writer/director; here’s hoping he can keep his momentum up!
