If Halloween’s got you hankering for another horror anthology, you’ll be pleased to hear about the gaggle of directors attached for V/H/S 2. Chief among them are Gareth Evans (The Raid) and Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Lovely Molly). The duo will be co-writing and co-directing different segments of the second installment of this year’s found-footage collection of horror shorts. Also joining the directing team will be Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre) and Sanchez’s producing partner, Gregg Hale. Hit the jump for more on V/H/S 2.
Heat Vision reported on the new ensemble of directors who will be helming segments of the horror anthology follow-up, V/H/S 2. The sequel also includes Adam Wingard (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die) who will be directing a full segment. Simon Barrett, who wrote the Wingard-directed picture as well as two segments of the original V/H/S, will make his directorial debut. Sanchez will co-direct his segment with Hale, a story written by Jamie Nash (Lovely Molly). Evans will be co-directing alongside Tjahjanto.
The first film centered on a group of students hired to break into an abandoned house and find a particular V/H/S tape, catalyzing the discovery of the found-footage horror shorts. The sequel will follow a similar path, this time with two investigators discovering a tape while searching for a student.
The production team of Gary Binkow, Bloody Disgusting’s Brad Miska and The Collective’s Roxanne Benjamin return, with Wingard and Barrett joining Site B’s Zak Zeman and Bloody Disgusting’s Tom Owen as executive producers. V/H/S 2 is shooting in LA, Maryland, Nova Scotia, British Columbia, Indonesia.
