A sequel to the early summer surprise hit The Strangers has been greenlit by Rogue Pictures. Brian Bertino, who wrote and directed the frightening original, is expected to write the follow up's script. It has not been determined if Bertino will direct the second film. Producers expect that actress Liv Tyler will return and reprise her role as Kristen, since her character "appeared" to have survived a vicious attack in the first film.
Production on the sequel is scheduled to commence early next year. The film grossed $54 million domestically, while it was made for only $9 million. The film's bowed internationally last week.
