Last time around, we brought you a ton of coverage on the ABCs of Death, and you can be sure that were going to do the same this time. So far 25 directors have been announced, including the blood-drenched Twisted Twins (Jen and Sylvia Soska – American Mary, Dead Hooker in a Trunk). I kinda hope they get “T,” but “T” couldn’t win twice in a row, could it?
As with the original film, there will be a contest to find the 26th director for the ABCs of Death Part 2. So, if you missed last time, here’s your second shot at starting your film legacy.
The ABCs of Death Part 2 is expected to hit next summer.
From the press release:
The sequel’s new roster includes Goya Award winner Álex de la Iglesia (THE LAST CIRCUS, DAY OF THE BEAST); ROOM 237 mastermind Rodney Ascher; Academy Award-nominated animator Bill Plympton; Filipino icon – and Director’s Fortnight inductee – Erik Matti (ON THE JOB, MAGIC TEMPLE); and the founder of Nigerian “Nollywood” cinema Lancelot Imasuen.
