Sinister was developed for an estimated $3 million and earned over $77 million at the box office, so it was no surprise to hear that a sequel is moving forward. Director Scott Derrickson talked about the sequel last month, but a new report confirms some of the details.
Deadline reports that Blumhouse Productions is officially moving forward on the project, with Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill returning to co-write the story. While everything is still in the early planning stages, it's likely that a new director will be brought in, with Derrickson staying involved as a producer, along with Jason Blum.
Sinister was released to theaters late last year and is now available on Blu-ray/DVD. The movie stars Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, James Ransone, Fred Dalton Thompson, Nicholas King, Clare Foley, Victoria Leigh, Juliet Rylance and Michael Hall D’Addario.
