The Strangers reportedly has three sequels in production

The 2008 slasher The Strangers written and directed by Bryan Bertino is widely considered one of the greatest entries in the home-invasion subgenre of horror.

In 2018 The Strangers: Prey at Night, directed by Johannes Roberts was released to mixed reviews from critics.

A new report has claimed that there are three sequels in the franchise that are all heading into development.

During Bloody Disgusting’s The Boo Crew Podcast, producer Roy Lee stated:

“I think the next three are in production next month with another filmmaker that people will know.”

Bertino’s original screenplay was discovered by Roy Lee, and made on a budget of $9 million, the film became a sleeper hit, grossing $82 million at the box office worldwide.

The plot follows Kristen (Liv Tyler) and James (Scott Speedman) whose stay at a vacation home is disrupted by three masked criminals who infiltrate the home. The screenplay was inspired by two real-life events: the multiple-homicide Manson family Tate murders and a series of break-ins that occurred in Bertino’s neighborhood as a child.

The Strangers: Prey at Night (also known as The Strangers II: Prey at Night) starring Bailee Madison, Lewis Pullman, Christina Hendricks, Martin Henderson, and Damian Maffei. It was written by Bryan Bertino (who wrote and directed the first film) and Ben Ketai.

A sequel to The Strangers (2008), the film follows a family vacationing to a secluded mobile home park, where they are attacked by three masked thugs – and grossed $32.1 million worldwide on a budget of $5 million.

Bloody disgusting also commented that the only other time anything like this has happened was with Netflix, who produced three Fear Street films back-to-back-to-back with a single filmmaker. Could the new Strangers sequels be invading Netflix?

The new Strangers sequels do not have official release dates yet, but production is set to get underway this September so expect to see further details over the next few weeks.
