It’s been 9 years since the terrifying original home invasion movie premiered, and it was beginning to look like that sequel alluded to at the end and officially announced in 2009 was never going to happen. Then some news surfaced on May 31 in Covington, Kentucky.
Covington, a hip spot for making movies, has locals annoyed by filmmakers disrupting traffic on not one day, but two. The Clay Wade Bailey Bridge, a common conveyance during rush hour, was held up for six hours.
Production on the film started in Los Angeles in April and is about a family being menaced by three masked killers (presumably the same ones from the original) at an abandoned trailer park. It stars Christina Hendricks (The Neon Demon, Dark Places), Bailee Madison (Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark), Martin Henderson (The Ring),and Lewis Pullman. No word on whether Gemma Ward, Laura Margolis, and Kip Weeks will be reprising their roles as the attackers.
Bryan Bertino is not helming this time, but wrote the screenplay. Instead it will be directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down, The Other Side of the Door). It’s expected to see release in 2018.
