'The Strangers' Sequel Moving Forward


Rogue Pictures have picked up 'The Strangers' director Bryan Bertino to pen the suspense thriller's sequel.

Rogue Pictures are finally going forward with the development of a sequel to the hit suspense thriller movie of the summer, "The Strangers". In the latest report concerning the second movie, the studio have been reported to have signed once again filmmakers Bryan Bertino to tackle the scripting of "The Strangers 2".

Though the scribe which made his directorial debut with the original "Strangers" has been brought back to the sequel project, it is still unclear whether he is going to be coming back as the helmer or not. On the casting possibility, it is said that leading actress Liv Tyler and several of the original villains are expected to reprise their parts in the new project.

The sequel of the movie about a couple stuck in the middle of nowhere with three lethal masked strangers will be a co-production movie from Vertigo Entertainment and Mandate Pictures. Hence, it means that Doug Davison, Roy Lee and Nathan Kahane are touted to produce it. Its production is slated to be kicked off in early 2009.

Budgeted at $9 million, "The Strangers" exceeded expectation when it debuted third on the box office weekend chart after its first weekend screening. Opened on May 30, 2008 in 2,467 theaters, the movie grossed nearly $21 million during its first three-day showing. It then continued to pull in $55.8 million from the worldwide market.
