Ouija 2 Gets Picks Up a Director and a Star!

Posted by at 7:26 pm on August 14, 2015


With the success of last year’s horror film Ouija, a collaboration between Hasbro, Platinum Dunes, Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures, it was inevitable that a sequel would quickly be greenlit and now word comes from the Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog that the sequel has found a director and its leading actress.

The Special Screening of BARELY LETHAL in HollywoodDirecting the movie is Mike Flanagan, best known for his 2014 horror film Oculus, starring Karen Gillan and Brenton Thwaites, which was also co-produced by Blumhouse. Flanagan had already been co-writing the screenplay for the sequel with his Oculus co-writer Jeff Howard.

17-year-old Annalise Basso, who also appeared in Oculus as the younger version of Gillan’s character, has been hired for the leading role in the movie as a young girl whose father died. (I wonder if she’ll try to use a Ouija board to talk to him? That’s my guess.)

Universal Pictures and their partners have already set a prime horror release date of October 21, 2016 for Ouija 2, hoping to repeat the success of the first movie which grossed $102.5 million worldwide on a $5 million budget.
