The Devil Inside, as a possible horror franchise, faces a dilemma. Does it move forward strictly based on its $34.5 million opening? Or, does it take caution and avoid sequel-itis given that it received an “F” Cinemascore? Obviously, the studio could do a sequel with the creators if they strived to do something better. Also, the film’s second weekend will likely dictate how everyone proceeds as well. But for right now, there is no rush, says Steven Schneider.
The Wrap spoke with the executive producer recently; you’ll find what he had to say after the jump.
“It’s a little premature. Everybody is processing what happened — the remarkable weekend we had — and feeling really good about that.”
He went on to add:
“Certainly the filmmakers and Lorenzo (di Bonaventura) and I would all love to explore that with the studio and I think we believe that there is absolutely the potential to carry forward our storylines from the original. It would be a rather organic and fun process — and one that would lead to great results.”
Schneider is behind the Paranormal Activity films as well as last year’s horror hit, Insidious. More on The Devil Inside 2 to come…if it ever happens.
