Mike Flanagan ("Oculus," "Absentia") is set to direct and Annalise Basso ("The Red Road," "Oculus") is set to star in the sequel to the horror thriller "Ouija" at Universal, Blumhouse, Platinum Dunes and Hasbro

The first film revolved around a group of friends fighting the supernatural forces behind the ancient spirit board game. Said board will be at the center of this film as well.

Flanagan will also co-write the script with Jeff Howard while Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are producing. The film is currently targeting an October 21st 2016 release.

A sequel isn't surprising - the first film cost just $5 million to make and made more than $100 million worldwide.

Images & Trailer for Mike Flanagan’s Before I Wake

17 March 2015 6:52 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

When I discovered Mike Flanagan’s independently made Absentia on DVD (ignore that horrible cover), I felt like this was a new voice in horror. While his style seemed to harken back to good old fashioned storytelling, he still had modern sensibilities. While I didn’t care for Oculus, it was still different enough to not be totally dismissed. Hopefully, Flanagan can average out filmography with Before I Wake starring Thomas Jane & Kate Bosworth. Check out the trailer & images below!

Formerly titled Somnia, Before I Wake is the latest, eagerly anticipated work from Mike Flanagan, a filmmaker many were introduced to by the terrific, atmospheric indie Absentia.
