The Hollywood Reporter has just dropped the news that you can expect some fresh new blood (and talent) in S-VHS (formerly V/H/S/2)!!!
Gareth Evans (The Raid; pictured above), Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Lovely Molly) & Gregg Hale, Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun) & Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre) are among the new talent directing segments for the franchise. Adam Wingard (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die) is returning along with writer/producer Simon Barrett (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die), the latter of which will be making his directorial debut on the film.
Per THR, “Some news perfect for Halloween: Gareth Evans, who directed The Raid, and Eduardo Sanchez, the director of The Blair Witch Project and Lovely Molly, are co-writing and co-directing segments of a second installment of ‘V/H/S’, the hit horror anthology that had people fainting at the Sundance Film Festival.”
The first movie followed a group of students hired to break into a desolate house to find a lost VHS tape, paving the way for the movie to go into a series of found-footage stories directed by up-and-coming genre filmmakers. The new movie follows a similar structure, with a pair of investigators discovering a tape while looking for a student.
V/H/S 2 is shooting in LA, Maryland, Nova Scotia, British Columbia, Indonesia.
