Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Charles Layton and eOne’s Xavier Marchand and Patrice Theroux are executive producing.

“Sinister 2″ is part of Blum’s new 10-year first-look producing deal, extending its current movie deal, with Universal.

The sequel will open against Warner Bros.’ romance “Me Before You.” It’s not clear if Hawke will return as no castings have been announced.
