The Strangers 2 Officially Filming This Summer; Casting Underway

It’s been years of long delays to get the sequel to Bryan Bertino’s home invasion horror The Strangers off the ground. Well, that long wait is finally over, because the film is officially happening folks. We just got word that casting for The Strangers 2 is currently underway and filming set to begin in the summer!

The Strangers 2 synopsis:

“A family whose road trip takes a turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park and after the power goes out they decide to hunker down for the night in a borrowed trailer. Under the cover of darkness, three familiar masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test their every limit.

Johannes Roberts (The Other Side of the Door, 47 Meters Down) is on board to direct from a script written by Bryan Bertino, who wrote and directed the original, and Ben Ketai. Wayne Marc Godfrey (The Foreigner, The Survivalist), Robert Jones (Centurion, The Usual Suspects), and Mark Lane & James Harris (47 Meters Down, I Am Not a Serial Killer) are producing, in association with Relativity Media. BLOOM will be handling international sales at the European Film Market in Berlin.

Robert’s said:

Working with The Fyzz and Bloom to bring the brilliant set-up from the first movie to a new generation and deliver a powerful sequel is incredibly exciting.”

Alex Walton said:

I am truly scared every time I think of the original The Strangers movie, it is my favorite horror film of the past 10 years. The screenplay will immediately satisfy any fan of the original and I’m confident of a growing audience for this genre around the world.

We must admit this is very exciting news. Horror fans have been waiting years for this sequel, but will it be worth it? Dark Universe will continue to keep you updated.
