It’s official, the sequel to horror film Sinister will star Shannyn Sossamon (Wayward Pines) and James Ransone, who played the part of the local deputy in the first film. Sinister was released in 2012 and starred Ethan Hawk as a true-crime author who, after moving into a new house, discovers a box of film reels depicting dead bodies in varied scenarios. He soon discovers that the one (dubbed Mr. Boogie) who is responsible, is now coming for him and his family.
In the first Sinister, James Ransone had just a side-role, so it will be very interesting to see what happens now the attention shifts to him as well as how the two films tie together. Additionally, the film is going to be written by Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill, who wrote the first Sinister, but Scott Derrickson – who also directed the Sinister – will be passing the directorial baton to Ciaran Foy. Sinister 2 is to be released in August 2015.
