Scott Derrickson's Sinister was a pretty creepy little number that left the door wide open for a franchise. And it made a boat load of dough, so a sequel was inevitable.
Surprise! Derrickson and his screenwriting partner, C. Robert Cargill, have completed a script for Sinister 2. Surprise again! Derrickson won't be back to direct.
Instead, Blumhouse Productions have turned the reins over to Ciaran Foy, who made the Irish spookfest Citadel, which Shawn and I reviewed late last season. Citadel and Sinister are all about atmosphere, so Foy is a good fit.
The remaining question is what will Sinister 2 be about? Obviously, Mr. Boogie will be back and more people will die, Beyond that . . . we'll have to wait and see.
As we like to say in The Basement, stick with us!
