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 – I’m unsure how a follow-up can continue the ruse.
The first cast member has been announced in Katie Holmes (pictured above), so it’s safe to say that the story featuring Lauren Cohan is a thing of the past.
Alas, here’s the synopsis for the planned sequel:
“Unaware of the terrifying history of Heelshire Mansion, a young family moves into the estate, where their young son soon makes an unsettling new friend, an eerily life-like doll he calls Brahms.”
What happens to Brahms’ parents?!
So many questions and so few answers. I suppose we’ll have to wait and see when we see the first footage from The Boy 2. Principal photography will begin in January with the film heading to AFM on 31st October 2019.
