'The Strangers' Directer Bryan Bertino is Excited About the Sequel

The original The Strangers film was written and directed by Bryan Bertino, who also went on to direct Mockingbird and The Monster, and produced The Blackcoat’s Daughter. The good people over at Dread Central recently talked with Bertino and asked him some questions regarding The Strangers sequel.

Said Bertino on The Strangers 2:

I’m thrilled that it seems like finally now people are behind the movie that are interested in making it. I was thrilled to see it out of Relativity’s hands and into a group of producers’ hands that are actually excited about making it. It’s very crazy to think that after all of these years they’re going to make a sequel, but I liked the script that I wrote when I wrote it eight years ago.

It’s a cool story, and I think it will have an opportunity to be an exciting movie. So I was really thrilled and excited to see, after so many false starts over the years, that it was in the hands of someone who was actually interested in doing something with it; and I really like some of the movies they’ve made in the last few months.

I was saying to someone the other day that I really liked I Am a Serial Killer so I was excited to see these producers are going to be involved in the film; it was exciting for me.

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.

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.
