Leo Gabriadze’s found footage cyber-horror Unfriended may have only just arrived in theaters, but already it's done enough for Universal to greenlight a sequel.
The film, which takes place entirely from the perspective of a computer's desktop, only entered theaters on April 17th, but until now it has accumulated $25 million from around the world. The production budget isn't currently available, but these kind of movies can often be made for under $1 million, suggesting huge returns on box office sales.
Currently, little is known about the sequel, although we do know Nelson Greaves, the writer of Unfriended, will return for scripting duties. Check out the trailer and synopsis for the recently released Unfriended below:
While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. At first they think it’s a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends’ darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something from beyond this world, something that wants them dead. Told entirely from a young girl’s computer desktop, UNFRIENDED redefines “found footage” for a new generation of teens.
