“I certainly want to write the script and be involved with it as the producer – I would possibly direct the next one, we’ll see,” Derrickson told the site.
“But I don’t see myself just handing the franchise over to just anybody and letting it go,” adds the director referencing what Lionsgate did with Saw. “If it goes on – then maybe – but I want to see it start its process on the right foot at least, and always have some say and have some involvement in it.”
Sinister‘s co-writer, novelist C Robert Cargill added, “Before we finished the movie Scott and I had a discussion about the things we don’t want to do, and spitballed just a couple of things that we would like to do given the opportunity, but it’s all still theoretical stages – ‘Oh, hey, wouldn’t that be cool’ – everyone’s still waiting to see on the lifecycle of the movie how everything pans out before everybody jumps up and says, ‘Yes! We must have a second one!’”
Sinister grossed over $62 million off a $3 million budget.
