Fans of The Collector have been wondering: Where is the sequel, The Collection? Well, it’s on the way. The thriller – once again from writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (the latter back on directing duties) – is screening at Cannes and we’ve stumbled on the first official photo from the film. It’s a small one, however.
Head inside for a somewhat larger look.
In the film, Arkin (Josh Stewart) escapes with his life from the vicious grips of “The Collector” during an entrapment party where he adds beautiful Elena to his “Collection.” Instead of recovering from the trauma, Arkin is suddenly abducted from the hospital by mercenaries hired by Elena’s wealthy father. Arkin is blackmailed to team up with the mercenaries and track down The Collector’s booby trapped hide out and save Elena from his sadistic rituals.
Melton has been quite vocal via his Twitter account, letting fans know that a trailer to The Collection will hit later this year with a late fall/early winter theatrical film release planned.
