    Joe Hill Pitches a “Wonderful Idea” for a ‘Black Phone’

    A sequel to The Black Phone seems like it would be inevitable due to the money the first film made at the box office. It rang in a whopping $152 million and then some. Not bad for a film that had a budget of a mere $18 million. Both Universal and Blumhouse were doing the Scrooge McDuck into their respective vaults. But, can lightning strike twice?

    “There’s already a lot of conversation, a lot of pressure being put on it. director, Scott Derrickson told comicbook.com. “I mean, the movie cost $18 million, and it’s going to ultimately make probably $160-170 million worldwide. So they want another one. Of course, they do,”

    The acting and direction in The Black Phone were fantastic. Each scene between Ethan Hawke and Mason Thames were brilliantly composed and added strict lines of suspense. Thames and Hawke should be winnings some awards for their work in those scenes. So for a sequel to go down, that same sort of magic would be a necessity.

    The synopsis for The Black Phone went like this:

    “Finney Shaw is a shy but clever 13-year-old boy who’s being held in a soundproof basement by a sadistic, masked killer. When a disconnected phone on the wall starts to ring, he soon discovers that he can hear the voices of the murderer’s previous victims — and they are dead set on making sure that what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney.

    It seems that Derrickson was prepared for a while leading up to this type of success for the film. Earlier in the year, Derrickson did admit to having some plans thanks to a conversation with author, Joe Hill.

    “Joe Hill pitched me a wonderful idea for a sequel to Black Phone that, if this movie does well, I’m gonna do it. He’s got a great idea, I really liked it,” Derrickson confirmed with ComicBook.com. “Joe’s very protective and personal about his material, but he came to me with the idea and I was like, ‘That’s how you do a sequel to Black Phone. That’s terrific.”

    The Black Phone is coming out on Blu-Ray and 4K UHD beginning August 16.
