After the success of last year's French horror anthology The Theatre Bizarre, the sequel The Theatre Bizarre 2: Grand Guignol is moving forward at Severin. Although no plot details have surfaced, Olivier Abbou, Xavier Gens (The Divide), Lucile Hadzihalilovic (Enter the Void), Pascal Laugier (Martyrs), Talal Selhami, Julien Maury (Inside), and Alexandre Bustillo (Livid) have been confirmed as directors. The studio has unveiled early promo art for this horror sequel, which you can take a look at below, along with a statement from Severin. Production is scheduled to begin later this year.
"After the critical success of the first Theatre Bizarre anthology, it felt only natural to follow up with another serving of more over-the-top, brutal, visionary, envelope-pushing tales. And this time, carte blanche was given to the creme de la creme of French directors, who were all very happy to take Grand Guignol back to its original birthplace."
The Theatre Bizarre 2: Grand Guignol comes to theaters in 2014. The film is directed by Xavier Gens, Lucile Hadzihalilovic, Pascal Laugier, Julien Maury, Alexandre Bustillo.
