Sinister is on track to get a sequel, and producer Jason Blum confirms that director Scott Derrickson is set to return for it. It just isn’t clear how exactly he’ll be involved:
Well, he’s writing it and he’s gonna come back in some capacity. He’s definitely gonna produce it and whether or not he directs it or not, I don’t know.
Though he and Derrickson are both very busy, Blum hopes to get Sinister 2 moving sooner rather than later. “I want to try and start it in the next six months or so,” he said. “I’m not sure that’s gonna happen, but those are our big plans.” [Shock Till You Drop]
The basic plot of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has been floating around for some time now, but star Keri Russell has filled in a few more of the details:
I can tell you that it’s 10 years after ‘Rise’ and basically, there’s been this virus outbreak and there’s very little of civilization alive. The apes that are left don’t think there are any humans left and the humans left don’t think there are any apes left. Through a set of circumstances, they meet up and it’s really about can the two communities exist together.
Russell also gave up some more info on her own character. ”I play one of the existing humans in the colony and I have some medical skills, although it’s not like I’m a big fancy doctor,” she explained. “I’m sort of Jason Clarke‘s girlfriend.” Dawn of the Planet of the Apes premieres July 18, 2014.

Barely a month after The Conjuring hit theaters, there are already rumors flying around about the plot of the sequel. In a recent interview, star Patrick Wilson confirmed that the specific incident being talked about has indeed been considered.
Chad and Carey, the writers, they sort of let this cat out of the bag, so I’m just confirming their gossip, which is they were interested in a story in London, overseas, of some sisters that were possessed. I don’t know, I haven’t seen the script.
That’s just one possible plotline, as nothing’s been locked in yet, but Wilson has a pretty good idea of which story they won’t do. “I can imagine it won’t be Amityville,” he said. “Or maybe it will be Amityville and I’m completely lying.” [Shock Till You Drop]
Riddick has hopped from planet to planet over the past three films, Pitch Black, Chronicles of Riddick, and the upcoming Riddick. So where will he go next? Star Vin Diesel has some ideas for future films:
You’ve got to go to the Underverse. It’s expected, it’s something I firmly believe. You’ll have to go through the Underverse to get to Furya. So, those are the two further stories that are mapped out. The Underverse is a much more costly venture. We went this direction, trying to do an R-rated movie, which is cool and even more interesting because it’s so unexpected. But yes, you will be at the Underverse and you will be at Furya sooner or later.
But first, we’ll see him on a desolate and dangerous planet when Riddick opens September 6. [SFX]
