Sinister 2 is just over a year away. Focus Features announced today that the horror sequel will land in wide release on August 21st, 2015. While original director Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Deliver Us From Evil) isn’t returning behind the camera, he did team with C. Robert Cargill (who also worked on the original film) to pen the script and will of course produce the movie alongside Jason Blum. If you saw Sinister you can probably guess why there aren’t any announcements about Ethan Hawke coming back.
I really liked the first film’s use of imagery and I think the general mood of the piece was its most successful element. So I’m glad that they’re entrusting the reins on this on to Ciaran Foy, who directed the excellent Citadel (seriously, seek that one out if you haven’t seen it already). Hit the jump for more on the Sinister 2 release date.
