Lionsgate’s The Haunting in Connecticut has made an astounding 55m at the box office here in the States, which in Hollyweird screams sequel. While we already broke the news in February of a potential sequel in the works, we just discovered that Gold Circle Films, the producers behind the first film, are hard at work on a TRILOGY. Read on for details.
The sequel currently in development is going to be called Haunting in New York and is based on the life rights to “A Haunting: The Diabolical,” a TV documentary that ran in 2006 on the Discovery Channel. “The Diabolical” was the second episode in the second season on the ongoing series.
“A Haunting: The Diabolical” Synopsis: Marie’s daughter suffers from a mental condition that keeps her from speaking. During the three years they’ve lived in their home, Marie has witnessed her communicating with someone she could not see. Marie was unworried, having decided it was positive angels. But upon his first visit, Marie’s boyfriend, Chris, feels a dark presence in the house. Using a Ouija board, the two unintentionally open up the home to a diabolical that is using Julie as a portal. A team of paranormal investigators soon decide the case is more serious than they can handle and arrange with the Church for an exorcism.
Considering the second bows well, Gold Circle is also working on the rights to tell the tale of Haunting in Georgia, which will officially turn this into a franchise.
UPDATE: “A Haunting in Georgia” is the chilling story of four-year-old Heidi and her imaginary friends Mr. Gordy and Con. As Heidi reveals mysterious details about the two, her parents become concerned … could her playmates be more than make-believe? When the rest of the family begins experiencing terrifying phenomena — waking with deep gashes on their bodies–it seems there’s little they can do to stop the escalating nightmare.
