CITADEL Helmer Ciaran Foy Lands SINISTER Sequel

Talented Irish filmmaker to direct horror sequel…

It has been announced that Dublin native Ciarán Foy, who made his feature debut with the 2012 Irish/Scottish psychological horror ‘Citadel,’ has been tapped to take the reins of Blumhouse Productions and Entertainment One’s ‘Sinister’ sequel.

Directed by Scott Derrickson, the micro-budget original starred Ethan Hawke as Ellison Oswalt, a true crime novelist who discovers a box of mysterious, disturbing home movies that plunge his family into a nightmarish experience of supernatural horror.

Production on the sequel kicks off in July, with Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill providing the script. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Charles Layton, and Xavier Marchand and Patrice Théroux of eOne will executive produce.
