sinister - Sinister 2 Filming in Chicago This AugustAccording to the Chicago Tribune, the sequel to Sinister (Blu-ray review here) is gearing up for production this August in Chi-town! Read on for the latest on the continuing adventures of Mr. Boogie.

Ciarán Foy (Citadel) will be the one in the director’s chair for this latest go-round.

All of the other major behind-the-scenes players are back for Sinister 2, including creators Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill. They wrote the original, which Derrickson also directed.

Sinister 2 is the sequel to the highly praised original film starring Ethan Hawke, which grossed more than $87M worldwide off of a $3M budget. The move to build the Sinister franchise follows in the footsteps of Blumhouse’s successes with the Paranormal Activity and Insidious series of ultra-low-budget genre hits.

Plot details are currently being kept under wraps; however, an ad on Simon Casting’s Facebook page stated, “We’re looking for girls, ages 8-12, who speak Norwegian for a role in a horror feature film. … The project begins shooting in mid-August in Chicago.” The Illinois Film Office’s Betsy Steinberg confirmed the ad is for Sinister 2.

Stay tuned!
