Black Phone writer teases what a follow-up movie could discover

Writer Joe Hill’s “The Black Phone” short story is only a few dozen pages long, but it inspired the Scott Derrickson-directed feature film, which has become one of the best-reviewed horror films of the year. Based on both the critical and financial response to the project, Derrickson himself has confirmed that Hill has shared details about what a potential sequel might focus on, and while talks of a sequel are in the early stages. Because not wanting to reveal plot details, Hill recently recalled how much storytelling ability comes from the mask worn by Ethan Hawke’s villainous “Grabber” character. black phone Now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.

“There’s been some really good conversation about the sequel. And the thing is, as soon as I saw the mask, which was designed by Tom Savini and Jason Baker, as soon as I saw the mask, I thought, ‘If this movie was a hit. Well, there will be a sequel, ’cause the mask is so iconic,” Hill admitted to ComicBook.com. “It’s like Freddie Kruger’s gloves, it’s like Michael Myers’ mask, this thing where it’s imagery, iconic imagery, that haunts people’s sleep. And, in horror, Jason Voorhees and Freddie Kruger, And look at people like Frankenstein, and Dracula, none of these people remain buried. They all come out of the grave for a sequel and then a threequel.”

He continued, “There’s been talk about how to make a sequel that won’t go to waste. How to make a sequel that doesn’t cheap out the first film, it’s still scary, it’s still intense, which is organic. Looks like. And those conversations have been great. But if I had to give any details, Scott and [writer C. Robert] Kargil will lock me in the basement in the film, and that’s it. And the phone doesn’t work. As you know, the phone does not work. I can’t call anyone to come out. So I will refuse to give any real details about a possible sequel.”

Noting that the film contains more grounded horror elements such as a kidnapped serial killer and supernatural elements such as a phone call from another realm, Hill specified that it was the mask that felt so iconic, a future film potentially Was focusing more on the person who wears it. Interestingly, while the original short story is not masked, it is possible that this adaptation and the creation of the disguise ignited many creative ideas within the author.

In the film, Finney (Mason Thames), a shy but clever 13-year-old boy, is kidnapped by a hermit killer (Hawk) and trapped in a soundproofed dungeon where screaming is rare. When a disconnected phone on the wall begins to ring, Finney learns that he can hear the voices of the murderer’s previous victims. And they are ready to make sure that what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney. The film is produced by Derrickson & Cargill’s Crooked Highway and presented by Universal and Blumhouse.
