Sinister Sequel In The Works – Will Give Blumhouse Three Franchises Running In Parallel

Sinister flickteaser 10Paranormal Activity will reach its fifth instalment this year, or sixth if you count the upcoming Oxnard Tapes spin-off.* At the same time, the second Insidious picture is in production. That’s two ongoing series for producer Jason Blum.

And the third, say Deadline, will spring from last year’s rather successful haunting yarn, Sinister.

Their report claims that “all of the major behind-the-scenes players are back” with C. Robert Cargill and Scott Derickson, the writer and director of the first installment, set to write the screenplay.

And so it’s not yet clear who will direct, but my hunch is that it won’t be Derickson. He’s got a movie adaptation of the Deus Ex videogames in the works, also co-written with Cargill, as well as an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Breathing Method.

Could the person in charge of Sinister 2 turn out to be Cargill, making his directorial debut? I’d take that bet.

Incidentally, CBS films have registered URLs in relation to the Deus Ex movie, giving it the subtitle Human Defiance. Clearly that means something… but I don’t know what. Perhaps had I played the games more.

*Presuming this still happens. We’ve not heard anything in a good long while.
