Christopher Convery (pictured above) has joined the cast of the sequel The Boy 2, joining Katie Holmes. Directed once again by William Brent Bell (The Boy), the film follows a family who moves in to the Heelshire Mansion unaware of its haunting past. When Convery’s character befriends the lifelike doll Brahms, strange things start to happen.
Convery is currently starring in The Girl in the Spider’s Web, but you might also recognise him as Martin from the series Gotham.
The Boy was a pleasant surprise and featured a twisting and frequently eerie tale of a haunted doll, but the last thing I expected was the film to get a sequel. Considering how the film ended – with that shocking reveal – this one will certainly have to take a different approach.
Principal photography will begin in January with The Boy 2 heading to AFM on 31st October 2019.
