Following the original spoof comedy's $40 million box office take, A Haunted House 2 (working title) is officially on the way from Open Road Films and writer/star Marlon Wayans.

The film will be financed and produced by IM Global’s genre label Octane. The announcement was made today by Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road Films and Stuart Ford, CEO of IM Global.

“Marlon Wayans is one of the funniest and hardest working talents in the movie business,” stated Ortenberg. “Working with Marlon, producer Rick Alvarez and IM Global on 'A Haunted House' was a fantastic experience and we are thrilled to re-assemble the team for another hilarious movie.”

Marlon Wayans stated, “Rick and I are excited about embarking on this journey again. IM Global has been a great, supportive partner and Open Road did a fantastic job marketing and releasing the movie. I’m looking forward to doing it again, mainly because of the fun we had the first time around. ‘Fun’ is the keyword when doing funny. Let’s go (in my @iamdiddy voice)!”

Alvarez added, “We look forward to getting started on the next chapter of what we hope will become an incredible franchise. Our goal with the first movie was to create big laughs on a tiny budget and with the help of our partners, our creative team, and the tireless promotion of Marlon we were able to achieve that goal.“

“What Open Road achieved with the micro-budgeted first film was tremendous and we have every faith that we can now generate a hit sequel together,” stated Ford.

Open Road Films will release A Haunted House 2 nationwide in Winter 2013-14. The first film will be released by Universal Studios Home Entertainment on DVD, Blu-Ray, and VOD on April 23, 2013. Production on A Haunted House 2 is scheduled to take place this summer.
