Following our interview with horror auteur Adam Robitel, ahead of his return to the big screen with the hotly anticipated sequel, ESCAPE ROOM: TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS, SCREAM also got the chance to pick the brains of one of the returning cast members who unwittingly gets caught up in yet another of Minos’ deadly schemes.
Written by Will Honley, Maria Melnik, Daniel Tuch and Oren Uziel and starring both leads from the first film, Taylor Russell (Bones & All, “Lost in Space”) and Logan Miller (Prey, We Summon the Darkness), as well as newcomers to the franchise, Indya Moore (“Pose”), Holland Roden (Follow Me, “Teen Wolf”), Thomas Cocquerel (Billionaire Boys Club) and Carlito Olivero (Bad Samaritan, “Step Up: High Water”), this second instalment follows six people who unwittingly find themselves trapped in yet another series of escape rooms. As they solve the puzzles, they gradually uncover what they all have in common to survive…and discover they’ve all played the game before.
Get ready for today’s release of Escape Room: Tournament of Champions as we sit down with Miller to find out what convinced him to sign on for a second bout and just how torturous certain moments on set were, given the fact that much of what we see on the screen took place on tailor-made sets rather than in front of green screens.
