The Strangers 2
What in the hell is going on with sequels today? With the exception of the Saw and Paranormal Activity franchises, it seems like further installments of successful films cannot get off the ground. Here's a little bit more about that Strangers sequel we've been hearing about on and off for the last three years, but don't get too excited.
Me? I dug The Strangers. It lost some steam during the second and third acts, but overall it totally did its thing. So much so that sequel talk is a hot subject right now, and there's one director out there who's a front-runner for the gig.
After months of negotiations Variety reports that Relativity Media has officially snapped up Rogue Pictures from the hands of Universal Pictures, closing the deal for around $150 million.
Talk 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.
