‘The Strangers’ – Renny Harlin Directing At Least One of the Upcoming Sequels! [Exclusive]

As we reported yesterday, it looks like THREE new sequels to The Strangers are on the menu, with producer Roy Lee (The Ring, Poltergeist, Blair Witch, IT, Barbarian) telling Bloody Disgusting’s The Boo Crew Podcast that “the next three are in production next month.” What can we expect from the third, fourth, and fifth installments in The Strangers franchise, you ask?

For starters, Bloody Disgusting did some digging in the past 24 hours and we have been able to slash up some more exclusive intel. We’re now being told that Renny Harlin is on board to direct one if not all three brand new upcoming sequels in The Strangers franchise!

Renny Harlin has a long history in the horror genre, most notably directing A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master in 1988. Harlin’s horror credits also include Prison (1987), Deep Blue Sea (1999), Exorcist: The Beginning (2004), The Covenant (2006), and Devil’s Pass (2013).

Outside the horror genre, Renny Harlin has directed notable films including Die Hard 2 (1990), Cliffhanger (1993), The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996), and The Legend of Hercules (2014).

Renny Harlin is needless to say a very interesting choice to take over The Strangers franchise, and it’s probably safe to expect that he’ll inject new life and new energy into the saga.

Stay tuned for more on all things The Strangers as we learn it.

The Strangers began in 2008 with Bryan Bertino’s original home invasion horror movie, a terrifying film that introduced three masked killers who returned 10 years later with The Strangers: Prey at Night in 2018. The first film took place in a remote house in the woods while the sequel brought the murderous Man in the Mask, Dollface and Pinup Girl into a trailer park.

Where will they strike next? We’ll find out real soon…
