The producers behind “ABCs of Death” are getting ready to add more letters, announcing a sequel to last year’s anthology horror pic to shop at Cannes.
Magnet Films, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, will produce in association with Timpson Films and Drafthouse Films.
“ABCs of Death” tapped separate horror directors for 26 short films about death. The second film will expand beyond horror helmers, however, and has signed on directors including “The Last Circus’” Alex de la Iglesia, “Room 237′s” Rodney Ascher and animator Bill Plympton.
Like they did with the original, producers will hold a director’s competition this summer to include one additional filmmaker. Release of “ABCs of Death 2″ is planned for next year.
