Blumhouse acquired Levan (Leo) Gabriadze’s Cybernatural out of the Fantasia Film Festival last July. Two weekends ago, the techno-thriller was released through Universal Pictures as Unfriended, and has since pulled in an estimated $25M here in the States. It’s a tremendous success when you consider that it’s a single location micro-indie, told entirely from a young girl’s computer desktop, and cost next to nothing to make.

With that, Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned that an Unfriended sequel is already in the works – in fact, we’re told it’s already being scripted by Nelson Greaves, who wrote the first film that was produced by Timur Bekmambetov.

Three of Bloody’s writers enjoyed the found-footage thriller quite a bit – here’s all three Unfriended reviews: review #1, #2, #3.

Shelley Hennig, Moses Storm, Renee Olstead, Will Peltz, Jacob Wysocki, Courtney Halverson and Heather Sossaman all star in the debut film: “While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. At first they think it’s a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends’ darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something from beyong this world, something that wants them dead.

Co-founded Bloody Disgusting in 2001. Producer on Southbound, the V/H/S trilogy, SiREN, Under the Bed, and A Horrible Way to Die. Chicago-based. Horror, pizza and basketball connoisseur. Taco Bell daily.
