A24 is reteaming with Danny and Michael Philippou for the sequel to their horror breakout film of the summer, Talk to Me.
The sequel, titled Talk 2 Me will be written by Danny Philippou and Bill Hinzman and directed by Danny and Michael Philippou.
Talk To Me has its world premiered at Sundance during the Midnight Selections sidebar and was picked up by A24 coming out of the festival. The film is setting new records in the box office with the second biggest opening weekend for the studio. Through its first 11 days, Talk to Me is besting the running totals of Ari Aster’s Midsommar ($17.3M), has already blown past last summer’s Bodies Bodies Bodies final domestic take ($11.4M), and it will soon pass the stateside gross of The Witch ($25.4M).
Talk to Me is produced by Causeway Films’ Samantha Jennings and Kristina Ceyton. The film joins A24 horror franchises like Ti West’s X trilogy, with the upcoming film MaXXXine starring Mia Goth, Halsey, Elizabeth Debicki, Moses Sumney, Michelle Monaghan, Bobby Cannavale, Lily Collins, Giancarlo Esposito and Kevin Bacon.
