‘The Black Phone 2’: Director Scott Derrickson Open for a Sequel



'The Black Phone 2': Director Scott Derrickson Open for a Sequel

We reported back in June that Joe Hill had pitched director Scott Derrickson a great idea for a sequel to his 2022 horror hit The Black Phone. Now, in a recent interview with The Wrap, Derrickson said that he thinks the movie can be expanded upon.

While talking with the website this past Wednesday, Derrickson dropped the following comments:

It’s not something that is innately exciting to me, in the case of this story. I’m interested in the characters that we created, and I think there’s a tone to the movie that is unique and can be expanded upon,” Derrickson said. “So possibly, we’ll see. You never know, but I’m certainly not closed off to the idea.

In a related post, Derrickson revealed that Hill revealed his pitch for a sequel to The Black Phone. Follow the link to read what was discussed.

An Adaptation of Joe Hill’s short story by the same name, Derrickson’s horror thriller The Black Phone stars Mason Thames as:

“Finney Shaw, a shy but clever 13-year-old boy, is abducted by a sadistic killer and trapped in a soundproof basement where screaming is of little use. When a disconnected phone on the wall begins to ring, Finney discovers that he can hear the voices of the killer’s previous victims. And they are dead set on making sure that what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney.”

Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill wrote the screenplay. The film was produced by Derrickson and Cargill’s Crooked Highway and presented by Universal and Blumhouse. Jason Blum, Derrickson and Cargill produced.

The film also stars Ethan Hawke as The Grabber, Jeremy Davies as Finney’s father, Madeleine McGraw as Finney’s sister, and James Ransone as Max.
