Irish Director Ciaran Foy Will Take On Sinister 2
Moving into the Blumhouse

Irish filmmaker Ciaran Foy turned some heads with his debut feature Citadel, an urban horror about a man who is menaced by faceless youths who may or may not have been supernatural beings.

And he obviously got some attention across the pond as well, as he's just been tipped to take on his first American movie, the sequel to 2012's Sinister.

That $3 million horror flick starring Ethan Hawke went on to make almost $90 worldwide and was a perfectly serviceable genre effort, thanks to some keen direction by Scott Derrickson and a fun script by movie critic C. Robert Cargill (we chatted to him about the film here) and both are still on board as co-writers with Derrickson also producing alongside famed horror money-man Jason Blum.

Blumhouse-which also worked on the likes of the Paranormal Activity series, Insidious and The Purge, knows how to make a success out of a tiny project and bringing in a fledgling director means they can cut costs even more.

There's no word on the storyline yet but given the ending of the first film I wouldn't expect many cast members to return but expect some more images coming to life in unlikely ways.

Derrickson made the annoucement on Twitter where he's very active and very entertaining. Give him a follow.

And Foy himself gave the annoucement a shout out, tweeting from Dublin no less!

There's no release date yet for Sinister 2 but expect it by this time next year.
