Talk to Me is getting a sequel called Talk 2 Me, with brothers Danny and Michael Philippou returning to direct the film
Last week, we shared a quote from Danny and Michael Philippou, the sibling directing duo behind the Australian horror film Talk to Me (read our review at THIS LINK, watch our interview with the directors in the embed above), where they said they wouldn’t be able to resist making a sequel to their film if they were given the opportunity. Deadline reports they will be getting the opportunity. The Philippous are officially working with A24 on a sequel titled Talk 2 Me!
Danny Philippou previously said that he already had scenes and set pieces in mind for a follow-up, so it sounds like he’s going to be able to bring them to the screen now. He wrote the screenplay for Talk to Me with Bill Hinzman, who just happens to share a name with the late actor who played the Cemetery Ghoul in George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead and later made his own zombie movie with FleshEater. Danny Philippou and this non-ghoulish Hinzman are now working on the script for Talk 2 Me.
The Philippou brothers will be directing the sequel together.
Talk to Me has the following synopsis: When a group of friends discover how to conjure spirits using an embalmed hand, they become hooked on the new thrill, until one of them goes too far and unleashes terrifying supernatural forces.
Sophia Wilde (You Don’t Know Me), Miranda Otto (Annabelle: Creation), Alexandra Jensen (Frayed), Joe Bird (First Day), Otis Djanji (Aquaman), and Zoe Terakes (Wentworth) star.
The Philippou brothers have said they’ve already shot some sort of Talk to Me prequel, but it’s not clear if or when we’ll get to see that footage. In addition to Talk 2 Me, they have signed on to make a new film adaptation of the Street Fighter video game franchise, they have an action drama project they’d like to make, and they also have a horror script called Bring Her Back that they want to get into production.
