Announced via press release this morning… A sequel to Marlon Wayans’ found-footage horror-comedy, A Haunted House, has officially been greenlit
Open Road, the company that released the first film, revealed the news this morning.
The film will be financed and produced by IM Global’s genre label Octane, with shooting scheduled to take place this summer.
No word on story however, although, per the press release, expect a similar kind of R-rated brand of humor. While I’m certainly happy for Marlon and company, I just hope they know when it’s time to say goodbye to a franchise. In other words, I hope we’re not talking about A Haunted House Part 6 in another 3 or 4 years.
The deal was negotiated on behalf of Open Road Films by Tom Ortenberg, General Counsel and Executive Vice President of Operations and Business Affairs Elliott Kleinberg, and Senior Vice President of Acquisitions Ben Cotner. Larry Kopeikin and Kevin Yorn negotiated on behalf of Marlon Wayans.
