When Sinister 2 moves into production this summer, it will do so under the direction of Ciaran Foy. Sinister helmer Scott Derrickson broke the news to his Twitter followers this evening.
Film begins this July for Blumhouse Productions and eOne.
Why is this good news? Because Foy directed the UK thriller Citadel, a quiet, disturbing film which impressed me in 2012. It's exciting to see him on board another project and making his U.S. debut.
Sinister 2 was penned by Derrickson and returning scribe C. Robert Cargill. No plot details have been revealed. When we spoke to producer Jason Blum last month, he told us, "If you love the tone of the first film, you'll love this. Plus it's got a lot of new stuff in it."
Stay tuned for more and, by all means, go seek out Citadel. Learn a bit about the project via our interview with Foy here.
