Variety says that Rogue Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to its summer hit The Strangers and has set Bryan Bertino to return to write the script.
Bertino wrote the original and made his directing debut on the film; it’s yet to be determined whether he’ll helm the sequel.
The expectation is that Liv Tyler, along with several of the original villains, will return. Production is being slated for early 2009.
Budgeted at $9 million, the film grossed $54 million domestically in a highly competitive summer release slot.
