After years stuck in development, the long-delayed sequel to Bryan Bertino's low-budget horror flick "The Strangers" is moving ahead.
The original pic starred Scott Speedman and Liv Tyler
as a young couple terrorized by three masked assailants who break into
the remote summer home in which they are staying and cut off all means
Made for just $9 million, the film had a
number of release delays before getting its theatrical release in May
2008 where it went on to gross $82 million worldwide.
The Wrap has it that Marcel Langenegger is in negotiations to direct The Strangers 2
using a script by Ben Ketai ("Chosen").
This time the action follows a family with a troubled teenage daughter who
travel to a mobile home park that her aunt and uncle run. When they arrive, they find their relatives bodies - victims of a recent
visit from the three masked strangers. That night becomes a race for
the family to escape the trio.
Roy Lee, Doug Davison, Nathan Kahane and Trevor Macy are returning to produce.
