Shannyn Sossamon Set to Star in 'Sinister' Sequel

Sinister

With the Sinister sequel slated to start next week, it's about time for Focus Features to start coughing up details regarding the storyline and who's going to star -- which they've just done, announcing that Shannyn Sossamon has signed on to do a whole bunch of screaming as the mother of 9-year-old twins who unwittingly moves her brood into (whoops!) "a rural house marked for death."

Sossamon will be joined by James Ransone, who Sinister fans may remember from the first installment as a well-meaning police officer; he'll return to reprise his role.

The studio has also made it clear that this will be a sequel that picks up after the gruesome events of the original installment, rather than a prequel as some had surmised; after it wraps filming in Chicago, it'll head to post-production for a scheduled release on August 21, 2015.
