Despite Vacancy's lackluster performance at the box office, ($19 million domestic), it seems that they indeed are moving forward on a prequel. According to Bloody-Disgusting, they have revealed that Eric Bross will direct from a script by Mark L. Smith, who wrote the original Vacancy.
They also have revealed the plotline for the upcoming thriller:
When Jessica, her fiancee Caleb and Caleb's buddy Tanner check into the lonely Meadow View Inn in the middle of rural nowhere, they have no idea that the motel is run by a homicidal maniac and two vicious greedheads who are making a bloody dollar by selling snuff films on the black market...
Principal photography is set to begin on March 17 in Los Angeles. There is no word yet on when the film is slated for a release.
