Yesterday we brought you the unsurprising news that Radius-TWC would like to see a sequel to David Robert Mitchell's IT FOLLOWS, which has been a hit with critics and audiences alike, bringing in better-than-expected box office and becoming a very buzz-worthy indie horror film. As the film inches closer to becoming a cult classic sequel talk has really ramped up, and now Radius-TWC co-president Tom Quinn has once again spoken out about a potential follow up which could literally flip the script.
Speaking with EW, Quinn revealed that Radius is strongly considering a sequel and that there's an idea for a title, sharing...
“I don’t want to give away too much, but we’ve thought about it (a sequel)...Flip the title. There’s so much you could do.”
Quinn is hinting that the title could be FOLLOW IT, and EW speculates that it could be an empowering reversal. Here's what they think it could mean:
...the plot could have characters tracing their partners’ sexual histories to track the curse’s origin (while evading the killer creature), which would give the movie a strong allegorical element similar to the first film’s. The original’s heroine, Jay, or possibly an entirely new lead would have to take a literal journey through the messy ties of past sexual partners, a task that undoubtedly comes with its own lessons and parallels to the titular “it.”
Not bad at all! I dig it.
So what do you think? Would you like to see a sequel to IT FOLLOWS?
