Marlon Wayans’ A Haunted House, which spoofed Paranormal Activity and The Devil Inside, made $40 Million at the US Box Office and hits home video on April 23rd. I would assume the production budget on these films is fairly low, since Variety is reporting that Open Road Films has acquired U.S. distribution rights to A Haunted House 2.
Of course Wayans will be starring again, and he’s co-writing the script as well. No word on which (if any) of the original’s cast will be returning.
The film will be financed and produced by IM Global’s genre label Octane. A Haunted House 2 will shoot this summer and be released in the winter, one would think in the January slot occupied by the first installment.
