Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions is producing (with Alliance financing) the film which will once again be written by Leigh Whannell and directed by James Wan.
FilmDistrict will distribute the film theatrically on August 30th in the United States, with Sony handling the majority of domestic ancillary rights. Alliance will distribute in Canada, the U.K. (through its Momentum Pictures subsidiary) and Spain (through Aurum), and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions will distribute in all other international territories.
Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, and Ty Simpkins all make their return in the film.
There’s no news on what the plot of the sequel will entail but judging by the cast and title we can take a guess that the film will continue from where the first one left off.
