SINISTER Sequel in Development

Micro-budget horror getting sequel treatment.

Deadline is reporting that Jason Blum‘s Blumhouse Productions is moving forward with a sequel to last year’s Scott Derrickson/Ethan Hawke low-budget horror ‘Sinister,’ with plans for Derrickson and co-writer C. Robert Cargill to return.

Made on a budget of $3million and grossing more than $87million worldwide, the original followed Ellison (Hawke), a struggling true crime novelist who becomes too close to his latest gruesome story when he discovers a box of mysterious and brutal 8mm home movies that suggest the murder he is currently researching is the work of a serial killer whose career dates back to the 1960s.

Cast and story for the sequel are being kept under wraps.
