Sinister co-writers Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill will write the screenplay, although Derrickson will not return as the director. Blumhouse is reportedly meeting with new filmmakers to tackle the follow-up. It makes sense that Scott Derrickson will not direct, since he and C. Robert Cargill are working on the video game adaptation Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Ethan Hawke starred in the original Sinister as a true crime author who moved into the same house where a family was brutally murdered. He discovers that an evil presence lurks within his new abode, and that his family is in serious danger. Sinister grossed more than $77 million worldwide from just a $3 million budget.
Best of the Week Sinister - Summit - Blu-ray and DVD Director: Scott Derrickson Cast: Ethan Hawke, Fred Dalton Thompson, James Ransone,Michael Hall D'Addario, Rob Riley. Full cast + crew Sinister is the kind of genuinely scary horror movie that's so effective you just want to curse at it. It's not only the best horror movie of 2012, but one of the best in years, making excellent use of that rare combination of interesting characters with a creepy premise. There are a handful of movies a year that pull off the latter, but it's rare that they also nail the former, and it's the difference maker between a movie that can freak you out while you're watching it and one that'll pop into your brain and shoot down your spine...

When Sinister was released in October 2012, we had the pleasure of chatting with co-writer C. Robert Cargill and co-writer/director Scott Derrickson about their gut-punch thriller. With the film's home video release this week, we thought it the perfect time to catch up with the duo.
Derrickson and Cargill (read our previous interview with them here) spoke more about the mythology they created for Sinister as well as what's been the most surprising aspect of their collaboration since they began writing the project together not all that long ago. We also heard from the pair about a potential Sinister sequel and what sort of pitfalls they want to avoid when creating a follow-up to what was by far one of the more intense horror flicks to grace the big screen in 2012.
Be warned, though; the following interview with Derrickson and Cargill does contain some spoilers so if you haven't seen Sinister yet, »
Next week Sinister comes home on Blu-ray and DVD, and to get you primed for the flick, we've landed an exclusive soundbite with star Ethan Hawke discussing horror. Since that's one of our favorite topics, we figured you'd dig it!

The flick Sinister (review here) had the DC staff divided. Some liked it and some hated it, but either way it did great box office so a sequel could always be looming. In fact the first chatter has begun. Read on for the latest on the continuing adventures of Mr. Boogie.
“I certainly want to write the script and be involved with it as the producer – I would possibly direct the next one, we’ll see,” says Derrickson. “But I don’t see myself just handing the franchise over to just anybody and letting it go. If it goes on – then maybe – but I want to see it start its process on the right foot at least, and always have some say and have some involvement in it.”
