Focus Features starts production on the Scott Derrickson-produced horror sequel Sinister 2 next week. They've announced that James Ransone will reprise his role in the movie, and that he'll be joined franchise newcomer Shannyn Sossamon (The Rules of Attraction).
The press release also offers up the following details on the story:
In the aftermath of the shocking events of Sinister, a protective mother (Sossamon) and her 9-year-old twin sons (real-life twins Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death.
Ciaran Foy (Citadel) is directing the film from a script that Derrickson co-wrote with C. Robert Cargill. The film will be released in theaters on Friday, August 21st, 2015.
I thought the first movie was a fun horror flick, and it offered audiences a solid story with some great creepy scares. I'm sure the sequel will be just as good since the script comes from the original writers.
