Producer mulling "Darkness Falls" sequel

Producer mulling "Darkness Falls" sequel

"Darkness Falls" producer John Hegeman, who is pleased with the supernatural horror film’s box office, told SCI FI Wire that the filmmakers are mulling a sequel. "I think everyone … would love to see Darkness Falls turn into a franchise property," Hegeman said in an interview

And that’s one of the reasons why we tried to really lay out a strong mythology and create a very identifiable core character."

Darkness Falls opened in the top slot at the box office on Jan. 24 and saw its box-office revenues slip only 38 percent in its second weekend of release. "I think we want to see how the picture plays out the second week" before committing to a sequel, Hegeman said. "See if the picture is expanding its audience, and really try to get an idea of what the audience is going to be looking for. But certainly it’s in the plans and in our thoughts, and it’s one of the reasons why we tried to make a very identifiable mythology to the main character."

Hegeman added that the main cast members, including Chaney Kley and Emma Caulfield, have expressed interest in returning for a second installment.
