Writer and director Buddy Cooper is returning to helm a sequel to his 1984 slasher movie The Mutilator!
Original stars Ruth Martinez and Bill Hitchcock will also be back for The Mutilator 2. They’ll star alongside Terry Kiser (Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood) and Damian Maffei (The Strangers: Prey at Night) in the film, which will be scored by Alexander Taylor (Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street).
“I’m so honored and excited to be a part of The Mutilator franchise,” Taylor said in a statement. “One of the best parts of this is the fact that Buddy Cooper is back! It’s rare for a legacy film to have the original writer and director come back, so you know this is going to be special. Buddy and I already have some cool themes and wild ideas for the score.”
Filming on The Mutilator 2 will begin in 2022.
