The Strangers 2 Will Have A Road Element To It

19 June 2017 5:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ten years is a lifetime in the film industry.

To put that into perspective, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was viewed as little more than wishful thinking back in 2007, when Jon Favreau and the Powers That Be quietly began plotting an Iron Man post-credits scene involving a certain Nick Fury. Twelve months later, Favreau’s standalone pic launched Robert Downey Jr.’s career into the stratosphere and the rest is history. But 2008 also witnessed the release of a lesser-known horror pic. Its name? The Strangers.

Headed up by Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman, the home invasion thriller became something of a cult hit nine years ago and now, after enduring a prolonged spell in pre-production, The Strangers 2 is officially on the cards. It’s found its leading trio, too, now that former Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman have all climbed aboard to anchor the horror sequel. »

'The Strangers 2' Lures In Christina Hendricks To Star

12 May 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

A sequel to The Strangers has been a long time coming. The indie horror, movie starring Liv Tyler as a poor woman who just happened to be home when three masked maniacs felt like cutting loose, was a hit back in 2008, freaking out tons of people both in theaters and at home. Not only was it successful, but it also had a simple, tried and true premise that could easily be replicated for sequels. Those sequels never materialized, though. News of a The Strangers 2 has come and gone over the years. 2016 seemed like the year it would finally happen, but nope. Now, though, it's finally coming together. And thankfully it's with some promising names in front of and behind the camera. Deadline reports that Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Bailee Madison (Once Upon a Time), and...

Strangers 2 Gets Mad Men Star Christina Hendricks in the Lead

12 May 2017 12:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After nearly a decade, it looks like The Strangers 2 is finally coming together. The long-awaited sequel is set to shoot later this month and, as further proof that the movie is actually happening this time, three cast members have been added. Bailee Madison (Once Upon a Time) and Lewis Pullman (Aftermath) have joined the cast, but, most importantly, Emmy-nominated actress and former Mad Men star Christina Hendricks has signed on to play the lead in The Strangers 2.

According to Deadline, the trio of actors have officially signed on for The Strangers 2, which will be getting underway very shortly. Filming is set to begin on May 30, but there is no word yet on an official release date. Since this is going to be a relatively low-budget horror-thriller, the shoot probably won't be all that long and, depending on how long post-production takes, we could be seeing the movie in theaters fairly soon. »

The Strangers 2 Producer Reveals Details Of The Long Awaited Sequel

12 April 2017 10:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Home invasion tales are a well-worn narrative in the horror movie genre – but every once in a while, a film comes along that gives that tired scenario a shot in the arm. 2008’s The Strangers was one such project, with its story of relationship discord playing out as background to a terrifying encounter with masked intruders. A sequel has been in the works for a number of years, but is finally picking up momentum – as The Strangers 2 – with director Johannes Roberts at the helm.

The Strangers was notable for the way in which it specifically sought to leave the motivations of the attackers a mystery. Focusing on the perspective of the victims, the film was anchored by the idea that the target couple (played by Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman) would have no idea why they were being terrorised, and so the audience doesn’t either. Until now, The Strangers 2 »

Deadly Dialogue: A Conversation on Cinema with Filmmaker Bryan Bertino

4 April 2017 5:10 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Hello, readers! Welcome back for another installment of one our featured columns here at Daily Dead, Deadly Dialogue: A Conversation on Cinema, in which we catch up with notable folks—both in front of and behind the camera—from the horror and sci-fi genres to discuss the films that inspired them to become the artists they are today.

With the release of The Blackcoat’s Daughter from A24, we thought it was the perfect time to chat with filmmaker Bryan Bertino, who, in addition to directing The Strangers, Mockingbird, and The Monster, was a producer on The Blackcoat’s Daughter as well. Here’s what Bertino had to say when we discussed what inspired his decision to pursue a career in Hollywood.

Honestly, I always knew I wanted to be in the movies. When I was about 18 or 19, the only thing that I knew was that I had a passion for movies. »

During the interview, Bertino discussed working with Perkins on The Blackcoat’s Daughter, the struggles they faced throughout the four-year process of getting the project made, and how the initial script jumped »

The Strangers 2 to begin production this summer with Johannes Roberts directing

5 February 2017 11:50 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a long while since we heard anything about The Strangers 2, the planned sequel to the 2008 home invasion horror, but now comes word from THR that The Other Side of the Door director Johannes Roberts has signed on to helm the film, with production set to get underway this summer.

The Strangers redefined the home invasion genre by perfectly combining character and terror in a way that we rarely see,” said Mark Lane, co-founder of The Fyzz Facility Pictures. “This is a sequel that has been eagerly awaited and we are delighted to deliver it to the fans.”

The sequel has been written by original director Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai (The Forest) and “follows a family whose road trip takes a turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park and after the power goes out they decide to hunker down for the night in a borrowed trailer. »

The Strangers 2 Is Back In Development And Has A New Director

5 February 2017 8:52 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While no one would call The Strangers a classic horror film, it was certainly one of the more terrifying efforts that the genre produced in the late-aughts and most people seemed to enjoy it. There’s also the fact that it pulled in roughly $82 million off a $9 million budget – not a bad haul for a small horror flick without any A-list stars. As such, it’s no surprise that a sequel was ordered up.

That was several years ago though and ever since, The Strangers 2 has been stuck in development hell. In 2015 we heard that some progress was being made, but then things quieted down again and after the passing of director Marcel Langenegger, who was supposed to get behind the camera here, it seemed like the project might never come to fruition. Now, however, we’ve got a new update and it seems promising.

‘The Strangers 2’ Is Back in Production With a New Director

5 February 2017 12:01 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Strangers” was one of the scarier horror movies of the late-aughts, making deft use of two evergreen tropes — creepy masks and a home invasion — and earning strong returns at the box office. A sequel has been in one stage of development or another for years, most recently hell — at least until now. “The Strangers 2” has a new director in Johannes Roberts (“The Other Side of the Door”) and a script from original writer/director Bryan Bertino.
