Magnet Releasing has announced a slew of directors that will be contributing to the horror anthology sequel ABCs of Death 2, and it’s a fairly diverse lineup. Like its predecessor, the pic will deliver 26 genre-oriented short films each relating to a different letter of the alphabet. The producers are branching out of the horror genre for this new host of filmmakers, as Álex de la Iglesia (The Last Circus), Rodney Ascher (Room 237), and animation director Bill Plympton will be helming segments alongside Kristina Buozyte and Bruno Samper (Vanishing Waves), Sion Sono (Cold Fish), Vincenzo Natali (Splice), Marcus Dunstan (The Collection), and many more.
Additional filmmakers are expected to be announced over the next few months, as production will get underway for a planned 2014 release. The follow-up is described as “a wilder, leaner, faster paced and even more entertaining anthology” than the first film, so hold on to your butts, folks. Hit the jump to read the press release, which includes the full list of directors announced thus far.
