Katee Sackhoff, whose credits include “Oculus,” “Riddick” and “Battlestar Galactica,” is to star in the supernatural horror film “Don’t Knock Twice,” directed by Caradog James and being sold in Cannes by Content Media.

Katee Sackhoff Learns Don't Knock Twice

14 May 2015 5:46 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Still best known as Battlestar Galactica's Kara "Starbuck" Thrace, Katee Sackhoff is beginning to carve herself a bit of a niche in the horror genre. Following Oculus and Ghosts Of Georgia (plus Riddick, which had monsters in it), she's now signed up for Don't Knock Twice, a British chiller from The Machine's director Caradog James.Currently wheeling and dealing at Cannes, the film is being pitched as in the vein of Candyman and Ring, revolving around a "psychologically terrifying urban legend". The plot sees a guilt-ridden mother trying to save her estranged daughter from the curse of a vengeful witch. We'll assume Sackhoff is the mother. Unless she's the witch.Caradog's The Machine, starring Toby Stephens and Caity Lotz, got a tiny theatrical release but essentially went straight to DVD and digital. Which was a shame because it's good. Despite that, however, it's built an appreciative worldwide following, »

Universal Pictures Summons Another Franchise with 'Ouija 2' Coming

1 May 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Because a studio just can't refuse to do a sequel to a horror film that made even a little bit of money at the box office, Universal Pictures has announced that Ouija 2 will arrive on October 21st, 2016. The Blumhouse Pictures project was announced yesterday, though there are no details on where the new franchise will go story wise. Platinum Dunes will be back to produce again with Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard (Oculus) scripting the sequel. There's also no word on whether any of the cast members from the first film, such as Olivia Cooke and Douglas Smith, will be back in any capacity. Stay tuned for more soon. »

Ouija Summons Up A Sequel

30 April 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Ouija, the teen horror from first-time director Stiles White, may not have spoken to the critics much, but managed to manifest a healthy box-office haul. It beat John Wick to the top of the charts on its opening weekend last October, and currently boasts a worldwide haul just under $100m. You might think a sequel was inevitable. And you'd be right! Universal has broken out the board again.The first film starred Olivia Cooke, and White himself wrote the screenplay with his regular cohort Juliet Snowden (Boogeyman, Knowing, The Possession). In an intriguing change, however, the sequel will be working from a screenplay by Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard, who were behind last year's excellent Oculus. Perhaps this will be one of those rare occasions when a follow-up drastically improves on its predecessor. It's unclear at this stage whether Flanagan is interested in directing Ouija 2.Elsewhere the roster is the same, »

‘Ouija 2’ Slated to Hit Theaters on October 21st, 2016

30 April 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Universal Pictures is going to play with the Ouija board once again. The studio has announced the release date for the sequel to the Olivia Cooke-starring horror film, Ouija, that came out last October. This time around, however, the studio is working from a screenplay scribed by the writing team behind Oculus.

Variety reveals that Ouija 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on October 21st, 2016. Nobody is signed on to direct at this point, but it's been revealed that Universal is working from a screenplay written by Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard, who co-wrote the popular mirror-centric horror movie, Oculus, which Flanagan also directed.

As part of their first-look deal with Universal, Blumhouse Productions will back the sequel, with Jason Blum producing alongside Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis and Platinum Dunes' Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. It's also been announced that Ouija 2 will see worldwide distribution. »

Ouija 2 Summons Oculus Scribes, Possesses New Release Date

30 April 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite largely negative reviews for last year’s Ouija, Universal is still pushing ahead with a sequel to the teen-targeted frightener, emboldened by the first film’s massive returns. Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard, who penned the script for Flanagan’s 2013 horror hit Oculus, scribed the follow-up, which has been set for the Halloween-friendly release date of Oct. 21, 2016.

Ouija 2, as it’s tentatively titled, will likely see Olivia Cooke and Ana Coto return as sisters Laine and Sarah Morris, who encountered evil forces after attempting, along with friends, to use an ancient Ouija Board to contact a friend who took her own life after playing around with the same object. Alternatively, the sequel could follow a completely new group of ill-fated teenagers, but if Universal is looking to turn Ouija into a solid franchise, securing Cooke for multiple pictures makes a lot of sense.

Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard (“Oculus”) wrote the screenplay, and Universal will distribute the film worldwide.
