A “TALK TO ME” sequel is coming, with the obvious title

Tuesday, August 8, 2023 | News


The conversation with the realm of the dead isn’t over.

A24 has announced that it is reteaming with the creators of its current hit TALK TO ME (over $22 million at the box office so far) for a sequel to be produced by Causeway Films’ Samantha Jennings and Kristina Ceyton. The film will, of course, be called TALK 2 ME, and as before, Danny and Michael Philippou will direct from a script by Danny Philippou and Bill Hinzman. TALK TO ME’s $10.4-million opening weekend was the second biggest in A24’s history after Ari Aster’s HEREDITARY in 2018, so the follow-up was a no-brainer. We’ll bring you more word on TALK 2 ME as it arises; see our review of TALK TO ME here and our interview with the Philippous here.
