BAD KIDS GO TO HELL is getting a sequel as it was announced today that Sean Astin and daughter Ali Astin will be joining the film alongside Gina Gershon, Drake Bell, and Sufe Bradshaw with Sammi Hanratty in BAD KIDS GO 2 HELL, the latest chapter in the cult dark comedy-horror franchise BAD KIDS GO TO HELL. Ben Browder, who played Max in the original film, makes his feature directorial debut on BAD KIDS GO 2 HELL, as well as reprises his role for the sequel.
Hanratty, in the starring role, leads an ensemble cast of “Bad Kids” comprised of young rising stars Colby Arps, Sophia Taylor Ali, Matthew Frias and Erika Daly.
In BAD KIDS GO 2 HELL, it's four years later and a new group of students has been placed in Saturday detention at snooty Crestview Academy. After one of the kids locks away the teacher assigned to watch them, the five of them very quickly find their ranks dwindling as each meets a gruesome fate. They may make it out of the library, but with a new threat revealing itself around every hallway, is there enough time and resources for at least one of them to make it out alive?
The film, which was written by Barry Wernick and based on the comic book series created by Wernick and Matthew Spradlin, is currently in production in Texas and is expected to be released in summer 2015. Additional plot details are being kept under wraps, but fans of the first film in the franchise should expect a lot of fun twists and turns.
