LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - “The Haunting in Connecticut” is moving down the coast.
Producer Gold Circle is developing “The Haunting in Georgia,” a follow-up to this spring’s surprise hit.
The supernatural thriller centered on a family that moves to a new state and experiences spooky events in their home. The new movie is expected to follow a somewhat similar path but with a different family and setting.
Ti West, who directed the recent 1980s-set horror tale “House of the Devil,” has signed on to direct “Georgia.” Peter Cornwell directed the first film.
David Coggeshall is writing the “Georgia” screenplay. He wrote the upcoming thriller “Solo.”
Lionsgate distributed “Connecticut” but has not yet announced a formal deal for “Georgia.”
The modestly budgeted “Connecticut” became one of the breakouts of a surprisingly muscular first quarter at the box office, earning $55 million domestically despite having no marquee names in its cast. It’s the 25th-most profitable film of the year.
