And, a bit about Strangers 2 talk…
With The Strangers inching towards the $50 million mark at the box office, the powers-that-be at Overture Films are feelin’ frisky for a lick of home invasion thrills.
Overture and Winkler Films are swooning over Karl Gajdusek’s pitch for a film entitled Taken (no relation to the sci-fi series, natch). According to Variety, this one revolves around a crumbling marriage, due to infidelity, and the events of a home invasion that bring a couple back together.
Irwin Winkler and Jill Cutler will produce.
In other h.i. news, there have been rumblings on the web of The Strangers 2. Shock leanred from a few insiders that talks are way, way early – but of course it has been batted around.
