‘Sinister 2′ Adds ‘Wayward Pines’ Star, Reveals “Marked for Death” Plot

Sinister 2,’ the sequel to the horror film made popular by star Ethan Hawke and director Scott Derrickson, set up shop in Chicago, where production is currently underway. But does Blumhouse Productions have another hit on its hands? While details on the film were pretty scarce, the production announcement finally unmasked its sinister plot and casting details.

As it turns out, only one face from the first film will return for ‘Sinister 2,’ and that’s James Ransone, who played the “concerned sheriff’s deputy,” only this time he’ll be worrying over another family “marked for death.” According to the official plot details:

In the aftermath of the shocking events in ‘Sinister,’ a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon of ‘Wayward Pines‘) and her 9-year-old twin sons (real-life twins Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death.

We’ve barely seen Sossamon in anything of note since her days in ‘A Knight’s Tale,’ ’40 Days and 40 Nights’ and ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,’ unless you count stuff like ‘Mistresses’ and ‘Our Family Wedding’ — which we don’t. That said, we’re always game to see actors make comebacks, especially in Sossamon’s case, which is tinged with eerily interesting projects, like M. Night Shyamalan‘s ‘Wayward Pines’ and ‘Sinister 2.’

While Derrickson, who’s busy with Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange,’ won’t be returning to director ‘Sinister 2,’ he did co-write the script with C. Robert Cargill, as was the case with the first film. Ciaron Foy of ‘Citadel’ will be stepping up to helm the sequel, which will hit theaters August 21, 2015.
