When horror movies hit it big, we sorta expect them to have sequels. It would be weird for them not to. However, it’s always good to see one that comes out of nowhere and wins genre fans over, earning the launch of a franchise. That’s what’s happening with Talk to Me, a film that emerged out of Sundance with a ton of buzz, and after just a few weeks in theaters is now getting a sequel.
A24 doesn’t do sequels often, really only investing in The Souvenir Part II, plus Ti West’s X/Pearl/MaXXXine trilogy. But they are making that kind of commitment for Talk to Me, with the next movie already in development.
The movie currently in theaters stars Sophie Wilde as a troubled young woman who attends a party where she joins in on a seance using the severed hand of a dead medium. Making a connection to the other side, she fails to disconnect in time and now something evil wants to stay in our realm.
Not much is known about the sequel other than Danny Philippou Michael Philippou will return to direct, with Bill Hinzman joining Danny on the screenplay. The Philippou brothers are also attached to a live-action Street Fighter movie, so we’ll have to see which takes the pole position for them.
