Focus Features has handed out an August 21, 2015 release date for the upcoming horror sequel Sinister 2. The project will be going up against the Warner Bros. drama Me Before You next summer.

We reported in April that Ciaran Foy, who directed the indie thriller Citadel, will direct the sequel from a script by Sinister co-writers Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill. Scott Derrickson directed the original Sinister, which earned an impressive $87 million worldwide from just a $3 million production budget.

Scott Derrickson is also producing alongside Jason Blum, but it isn't known when production will get under way. With the release just 13 months away, don't be surprised to hear much more about this sequel in the very near future.
