Mere days in the past, the Philippou brothers have been musing on the potential for a sequel to Speak to Me, their A24-distributed supernatural horror movie that’s all however stormed into the hearts and nightmares of critics and audiences alike. Their perspective? Wholesome enthusiasm for the world they crafted, however in any other case doubtful on whether or not it might or ought to truly occur.
However now we reckon that was only a media-training reply to throw us off the scent, as a result of if the filmmakers are gung-ho sufficient about Speak to Me to shoot a whole prequel that they’re hoping to launch sooner or later, there’s no method the script for Speak to Me 2 isn’t a minimum of midway completed by now.
Certainly, per LeslyNewsMagazine, Danny Philippou revealed that he and his brother Michael shot a full Speak to Me prequel that focuses on the character Duckett, the boy who falls sufferer to possession within the movie’s chilly open, and by the sounds of it, it wasn’t your typical footage.
“We truly shot a whole Duckett prequel already. It’s informed completely via the attitude of cell phones and social media, so perhaps down the road we will launch that.”
And shortly after, Danny appeared to stroll again no matter hesitation he did have about the potential for a sequel.
“But in addition whereas writing the primary movie, you may’t assist however write scenes for a second movie. So there’s so many scenes. The mythology was so thick, and if A24 gave us the chance, we wouldn’t have the opportunity to withstand. I really feel like we’d soar at it.”
Suffice to say at this level that Speak to Me is completely begging to be whacked on the pinnacle with the franchise hammer, and whereas horror properties getting such a remedy hardly ever finally ends up being factor (simply ask Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Avenue, and just about each main participant exterior of Scream), the one surefire probability of Speak to Me failing as a franchise is that if it by no means tries to be.
Speak to Me is now enjoying in theaters.
