Shannyn Sossamon and James Ransome will star in Sinister 2, which will hit theaters in August 2015.
The film will open on August 21, 2015, the week after The Man From U.N.C.L.E. hits theaters with Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer and Hugh Grant.
Deadline reports that Ciaran Foy (Citadel) is at the helm directing from a script by Doctor Strange and Sinister director Scott Derrickson and his Sinister co-writer C. Robert Cargill. Jason Blum is producing for Blumhouse with Derrickson, and Charles Layton, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, and eOne's Xavier Marchand and Patrice Theroux are executive producing.
The first Sinister grossed $82 million worldwide on a $3 million budget for distributor Summit. That film starred Before Midnight's Ethan Hawke as a man who discovers a trove of home movies in his new house that placed his family in danger.
Deadline reports that Ransone will reprise his role in the sequel as a concerned local sheriff's deputy, opposite Sossamon as a protective mother who moves with her 9-year-old twin sons into a rural house that's marked for death.
