Last week, Sinister 2 took a significant step towards becoming a reality. Scott Derrickson, the director of the 2012 film which grossed $77 million worldwide, and Blumhouse Productions selected a director to take on the sequel: Irish filmmaker Ciaran Foy, who previously helmed the well-received thriller Citadel.
If you go back and look at Citadel, you’ll understand why Foy’s vision was enlisted to carry on the mythology of Bagul. It’s grim, yet incredibly emotional and it has some truly genuine frights.
“I was afraid he wouldn’t want to do this, but when he read the script, he was very matter-of-fact about it and said, ‘I want to do this. This is a movie I should make,'” Derrickson recounted when ShockTillYouDrop.com met with the director while he was touting his latest film, Deliver Us From Evil, at WonderCon this weekend.
