Although it didn't fare well with the nation's critics, with just a 7% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, those who enjoyed last fall's Ouija will be getting a sequel, according to producer Bradley Fuller. While conducting an interview with Collider for Project Almanac, the producer confirmed that a Ouija sequel is in development, although he would not confirm any plot or casting details, only that, "Ouija 2 is coming." It isn't know if Bradley Fuller and his producing partner Andrew Form have hired a screenwriter to craft the story at this time.
While Ouija certainly wasn't a critical hit, the thriller did take in $90.6 million worldwide from just a $5 million production budget. Those numbers are similar to another Universal Pictures' low-budget hit, The Purge, which took in $89.3 million from a $3 million budget, and last year's follow-up The Purge: Anarchy, which bested its predecessor with $110 million worldwide from a $9 million budget. Both of those movies were also produced by Bradley Fuller and Andrew Form, who are currently working on the recently confirmed sequel The Purge 3.
Ouija starred Olivia Cooke, Douglas Smith, Matthew Settle, Bianca A. Santos, Lin Shaye and Shelley Hennig, but it remains to be seen if any of them will return. Stiles White made his directing debut with Ouija with a script he co-wrote with his longtime writing partner Juliet Snowden (The Possession, Knowing). Are you excited to see a Ouija sequel? Or do you think this board game adaptation should just be left alone? Chime in with your thoughts below.
