I caught a murmur and had to do some serious digging to confirm this, but it’s true: A sequel to 2015’s Unfriended has been filmed in secret. While it screened for test audiences yesterday, those in attendance were asked to sign nondisclosure agreements, so I can’t tell you anything about the film beyond the fact that it exists—and it was extremely well received.
A sequel to Unfriended was announced over 2 years ago; Bloody Disgusting reported original Unfriended scribe Nelson Greaves was penning the screenplay, but we haven’t received any updates on the project since April 27th, 2015.
We’ll be keeping our ears to the ground to bring you additional details as they emerge. Stay tuned! In the meantime, check out the trailer, review, and synopsis for 2015’s Unfriended below.
Official Synopsis: One night, while teenagers Blaire, Mitch, Jess, Adam Ken and Val take part in an online group chat session, they are suddenly joined by a user known only as “Billie227.” Thinking it’s just a technical glitch, the friends carry on their conversation… until Blaire begins receiving messages from someone claiming to be Laura Barns, a classmate who killed herself exactly one year prior. As Blaire tries to expose Billie’s identity, her friends are forced to confront their darkest secrets and lies.
Unfriended is directed by Levan Gabriadze and stars Heather Sossaman, Matthew Bohrer, and Courtney Halverson.
