The Boy 2 Begins Production

“The Boy 2” Scares Its Way Into Production

Have you ever wondered if a film that grosses $35 million domestically warrants a sequel?  If you have, may I present to you STX Entertainment’s The Boy 2.

The film, which stars Katie Holmes, began principal photography this past Monday in Vancouver and is the follow-up to William Brent Bell’s 2016 film The Boy.  That film, which starred The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohen, grossed…you guessed it, just north of $35 million.

No original actors are returning for this sequel as the story has proven to revolve around a doll and a house, in much the same vein as Blumhouse’s Annabelle.  Based on a very early synopsis the film is set to see a young family, unaware of the history of Heelshire Mansion, move into the haunted home.  Shortly after moving in they notice that their son has made a new friend, an eerily life-like doll he calls Brahms.

The Boy 2 has no official release date for; however, based on the original’s theatrical run, a January 2019 release is likely.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
