Just wanted to clarify something about the reported sequel to Contracted, entitled Contracted: Phase II. There’s a story being circulated today that is factually correct, but puts the cart a little bit before the horse.
While it’s true that an idea for the sequel is being considered, right now it’s a pitch that writer/director Eric England has turned into IFC and Boulderlight (producers of the original film). It’s true that the film is doing quite well and I’d be the first person in line to check out a sequel… but that might not be in the immediate future. It is a pitch that has been turned in. That’s it. There are a BILLION things that need to happen before things get moving.
Here’s England’s instagram photo of a potential title page. It was taken last month.
