Rogue Pictures is already preparing the sequel to its summer hit, The Strangers, and has set Bryan Bertino to return to write the script.

According to Variety, Bertino wrote the original and made his directing debut on the film; it's yet to be determined whether he'll direct the sequel.

The expectation is that Liv Tyler, along with several of the original villains, will return.

Production is being slated for early 2009.
