'Black Phone 2': Director Scott Derrickson Says Joe Hill Pitched Him a Great Idea for a Sequel

According to recent comments made by Scott Derrickson, director of The Black Phone, a great idea for a sequel has already been presented to him. While talking with our friends over at ComicBook, it’s a high possibility that sequel could be coming at some point in the future with Ethan Hawke back in the role as The Grabber.

In a new interview this week with the website, The Black Phone director confirmed that an idea for a sequel has already been pitched to him by Joe Hill:

Joe Hill pitched me a wonderful idea for a sequel to Black Phone that, if this movie does well, I’m gonna do it. He’s got a great idea, I really liked it,” Derrickson shared with the site. “Joe’s very protective and personal about his material, but he came to me with the idea and I was like, ‘That’s how you do a sequel to Black Phone. That’s terrific.‘”

In another related post, Hawke’s commented on why he thinks The Black phone is better than Sinister. Follow the link to read what he had to say.

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 Jeremy Davies as Finney’s father, Madeleine McGraw as Finney’s sister, and James Ransone as Max.
