Ciaran Foy, who did a fantastic job on the 2012 film Citadel, has been tapped to direct Sinister 2 for Blumhouse. While Scott Derrickson is (obviously) not directing this installment, he did pen the script with his co-writer on the first film, C. Robert Cargill.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, as per the usual. But I’m excited. Derrickson’s film had some of the best uses of imagery I’ve seen in modern horror, and Foy is no slouch behind the camera himself. All in all, not a bad week for good directors (a la David Bruckner and Friday The 13th) tackling anticipated sequels*.
*Yes, I know the upcoming F13 film is most likely not a sequel. Sue me.
