The Strangers 2 Gets Going Again

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 of escape.

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 LeeDoug Davison, Nathan Kahane and Trevor Macy are returning to produce.

Production will begin this Spring.
