The Strangers is a horror favorite back from 2008, one of the better home invasion horrors made in recent memory. Being that successful horror movies usually get sequels, fans have been waiting for almost eight years to see those masked killers return to terrorize another household.
Relativity, who had previously announced that The Strangers 2 was coming at the end of 2016, has filed for bankruptcy. Yeah, not good news. Producer Roy Lee talked to Collider:
“We have a script that’s fantastic,” said Lee, “but they’ve had some financial difficulties so it’s unclear as to whether or not they’ll be able to finance the movie.”
No money means no movie. This might not be the end however as we have seen lesser movies *coughThePurgecough* get sequels so perhaps another company could buy the rights and we could still see this movie happen. Right now, however, don’t expect The Strangers 2 any time soon.
Are you still eagerly awaiting a sequel to this movie or had you given up long ago?
