It’s been almost seven years since the release of The Collection, the follow-up to 2009’s The Collector, and despite the sequel bait at the end of the second movie, it didn’t seem like another instalment was likely. But star Josh Stewart (who played Arkin in the first two films) recently surprised everyone by sharing a poster for the third film on Twitter, adding that we should all “lock the door.”
Marcus Dunstan, who directed and co-wrote both the The Collector and The Collection, will be returning to direct The Collector 3. The franchise follows a sadistic masked killer who catches and tortures his victims in elaborate traps before adding them to his twisted collection.
The Collection concluded with burglar-turned-victim-turned-hero Arkin trapping the Collector with the intent of torturing and killing him. But with another sequel coming, we’re sure things didn’t exactly go smoothly…
