Strangers 2 Confirmed

The Strangers returnTalk about movies that didn’t cry out for a sequel; Variety reports this morning that Rogue Pictures has pulled the trigger on The Strangers 2, with original helmer Bryan Bertino back to pen the script. No word on if he’ll direct again or not.

Here’s the messed up part of the article, and I hope its just speculation on the author’s part; it says that Liv Tyler is expected to return to her role from the first. Anyone who’s seen The Strangers (review) knows that while not entirely unrealistic, it sure would be annoying if it were true.

Meanwhile Bertino continues work on Black and Alone, two other films he’s working on with Rogue. Keep it here for more details on The Strangers 2 as we learn ‘em!

I'd like to see Liv back in part 2 if only to be killed because of her awful performance in The Hulk...

Bet you bottom dollars that this one has Liv Tyler going all Sarah Connor and tracking down "The Strangers." Then we'll get a Saw-like twist ending that completely changes what happened in the first.

Hopefully it's just a Laurie Strode Resurrection thing when they come back to kill her off in the beginning to set the stage for the next story. Even if, it would suck regardless. I mean it was supposed to be a random attack, but then again they did show her their faces.

"The Strangers 2" would be fun. We could see them terrorize a whole new family.

Liv Tyler returning...

Are they fucking morons?

I'll pass.

But what if Liv Tyler gets her boobies out and there's a random lesbian shower/make-out scene in it...?

It'd have to be a hot lesbian scene with a hot actress.

Thanks, but no thanks.

It's another 'out of the shower' Patrick Duffy moment... I left "The Strangers" thinking how cool it would be to learn more about 'the family' who committed these acts. Maybe some sort of prequel where we learn more about how they got together and why they do what they do. However, you need to avoid doing a Rob Zombie and over-explaining the origins of madness and violence to the point of absurdity. The lines, "Why are you doing this?", "Because you were in", are scary beyond belief, but if we then find that 'the family' had actually chosen them because of some high school vendetta, or some personal or family connection etc., then that would really be lame. Let's hope that Liv Tyler does not come back as some vigilante... 'cause that would be uber-shite!!!
