Olivia Munn Chugs Joel McHale's Beer, Relives Trauma Of Losing A Drinking Contest

22 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Olivia Munn is a woman who knows how to play to her strengths. While talking to HitFix about the future of 'The Newsroom', Munn was interrupted when 'Community' star Joel McHale offered her a beer. And hey, when someone offers you free beer, you accept because that is true friendship right there. But things quickly went south as Munn was reminded of a previous beer chugging experience with her 'Deliver Us From Evil' director Scott Derrickson that ended in a shameful defeat. Munn grimaced at the memory, 'I lost. I couldn't even finish the beer. I don't want to talk about it, actually. I feel really ashamed.' »

Scott Derrickson Explains Why A New Helmer Was Brought In For Sinister 2

22 April 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

From the Paranormal Activity movies to The Purge and Insidious, Blumhouse Productions has been spinning out enticing horror franchises. The latest of these is Sinister, a paranormal murder-mystery that earned a sequel after pulling in an impressive $77 million worldwide, despite a lean production budget of just $3 million. Initially, it seemed a no-brainer that C. Robert Cargill and Scott Derrickson would reunite for Sinister 2, having written the first film together with the latter directing. However, Blumhouse is going in another direction, bringing in Ciarán Foy. But don't feel bad for Derrickson. He's all for the new hire. Movies.com reached out to Derrickson, who will produce Sinister 2 alongside horror magnate Jason Blum, why Foy was selected for the sequel's director's chair. Derrickson is a fan of Foy's debut feature Citadel, explaining: "I remember reading the strong reactions people had to Citadel when it played at SXSW, so in January »

WonderCon: Scott Derrickson Talks Deliver Us From Evil’s Origins

21 April 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

WonderCon attendees were the first to get a five-minute preview of Deliver Us from Evil, the film Sony is hoping taps into a little bit of that Conjuring-like summer success when it opens in theaters on July 2nd. The preview mixed previously-seen trailer footage with new clips as well as talking head-style interviews with Ralph Sarchie, the police officer whose experiences and book served as inspiration for the film. The promo was intriguing and, at times, chilling. There were definitely a few "what the f**k?" moments, but more importantly, it demonstrated that director Scott Derrickson wasn't retreading supernatural territory he mined in The Exorcism of Emily Rose or Sinister.

WonderCon: Scott Derrickson on Why Ciaran Foy Was Chosen for Sinister 2

21 April 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Last week, Sinister 2 took a significant step towards becoming a reality. Scott Derrickson, the director of the 2012 film which grossed $77 million worldwide, and Blumhouse Productions selected a director to take on the sequel: Irish filmmaker Ciaran Foy, who previously helmed the well-received thriller Citadel . If you go back and look at Citadel , you'll understand why Foy's vision was enlisted to carry on the mythology of Bagul. It's grim, yet incredibly emotional and it has some truly genuine frights. "I was afraid he wouldn't want to do this, but when he read the script, he was very matter-of-fact about it and said, 'I want to do this. This is a movie I should make,'" Derrickson recounted when ShockTillYouDrop.com met with the director while he was »

Irish director Ciaran Foy signs on for Sinister 2

18 April 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Released in 2012, Sinister was an immensely effective horror movie, coming from the always reliable Blumhouse Productions, starring Ethan Hawke as a novelist investigating a strange murder that took place in his new home. Since it pocketed over $77 million in the world wide box office, off a budget of $3 million, a sequel was always on the cards. Now, the original's director, Scott Derrickson, took to Twitter to announce that the project is going ahead, and a director has been found in the form of Ciaran Foy, who was responsible for the critically acclaimed Irish horror Citadel. Nothing else is known of the project, other than Derrickson will once again write the script with co-writer C. Robert Cargill. Production is set to begin in July. Foy really showed he had a talent for the genre with Citadel, and I am excited to see what he can do with the follow-up to one »

'Sinister' sequel hires 'Citadel' director Ciaran Foy to steer the series

18 April 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Horror franchises are difficult to get right, and it's a built-in problem that seems hard to avoid. Much of what works on us in a great horror movie is fear of the unknown, dread that the filmmaker carefully cultivates. When you end up making a sequel to a horror film, you are automatically dealing with a known quantity, and the more often you return to a movie monster, the more you familiarize it to the audience, and the less effective it becomes. At this point, I have a hard time imagining anyone being afraid of Freddy Kruger, and if you look at the way they handled him over the run of the film series, the solution that the filmmakers embraced was to make him more and more comedy-driven, robbing him of whatever ability to scare he had in his initial appearance. It's happened with plenty of characters over time. Scott Derrickson directed the first "Sinister, »

'Sinister' Director Scott Derrickson Tells Us Why He Chose Ciarán Foy to Direct 'Sinister 2'

18 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In January, Scott Derrickson, the director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister, watched a somewhat under-the-radar horror movie from the U.K. called Citadel about a single father fighting to save his daughter from a gang of feral kids. As you can see from the above tweet, Derrickson was a bit of a fan and reached out to director Ciarán Foy on Twitter to let him know he dug his movie. Four months later and here we are with Derrickson taking to Twitter to announce that Foy will be directing Sinister 2. Sometimes the Internet sure does make the world seem small. We've known for awhile that Derrickson would not be directing the sequel to his own hit film about a novelist who uncovers the truth behind a string of grizzly murders, and that he would produce...

'Citadel' Director Ciaran Foy Gets Behind the Camera for 'Sinister 2'

18 April 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

When a sequel to the horror film Sinister was announced over a year ago, director Scott Derrickson and writer C. Robert Cargill were said to be reteaming for the film. And while Derrickson is still attached as a producer and writer, the filmmaker just revealed on Twitter that Ciaran Foy, the director of Citadel (which won the Midnighter Audience Award at SXSW in 2012), will be at the helm of the horror sequel this time. If you haven't seen that spectacular psychological horror thriller, you can watch the trailer right here, and then seek out the film right away. It shows that Foy is perfect to direct Sinister 2 in place of Mr. Derrickson. Still no details on how the story of the sequel will play out, but recalling the story of the first film, it only makes sense that the mysterious spooky figure and the creepy children that come in »

Just when you thought it was safe to go into the attic again, Scott Derrickson’s chilling horror movie Sinister is getting a sequel that’s set to begin filming this summer. Blumhouse Productions, which has perfected the art of the low-budget, big profit horror movie, intends to release Sinister 2 in 2015.

Citadel’s Ciaran Foy Will Direct Sinister 2

17 April 2014 7:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Great horror films are somewhat of a rarity in Hollywood, which explains why fans of the genre were so taken with Sinister, an engrossing and genuinely disturbing flick about a true crime writer who, after moving his family into a house where another family was previously murdered, stumbles across a box filled with tapes depicting the grisly murders of multiple families. And though Sinister‘s shattering conclusion may have led viewers to conclude that there wasn’t much room for a sequel, Sinister 2 is already well on the way.

Today, Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily RoseDeliver Us From Evil), who both co-wrote and directed the first film, announced via his Twitter page that he has selected a reaplcement for the sequel: Citadel director Ciaran Foy.

Sinister 2 news! The script, written by me & @massawyrm, will be directed by the talented Ciaran Foy. I will produce w/Jason Blum »
