Marcus Dunstan on the Collector's origins and possible third film, The Collected

With THE COLLECTION hitting DVD/Blu-Ray yesterday, director Marcus Dunstan (who also co-wrote alongside frequent collaborator Patrick Melton) sat down with Crave Online to talk a bit about his sequel to THE COLLECTOR as well as dropping a few hints as to what we can expect if we ever get to see a third film.

Dunstan shared that he already has a title in mind for another film in the franchise, stating...

It is COLLECTED right now. The first movie sets up THE COLLECTOR, the second movie is about The Collector’s collection, and the third movie is about a couple of people he has collected.

He also revealed that THE COLLECTED would reveal the Collector's origins.

We already have written a little origin, and the origin – if we ever are so fortunate as to make that – really kind of answers everything in about five minutes. So I think that would be fun, to see it. And then you just understand, oh, here are some of the iconic visuals that we’ve anchored around this villain, [and] where they all stem from, how that became part of his DNA.

As for the status of another go-around with THE COLLECTOR, Dunstan shared that it is dependent on how audiences receive THE COLLECTION, stating...

It’s already written, it’s good to go, but I think that a lot of people have to see and enjoy The Collection to justify going out into the trenches one more time, but man, it’s a brutal tale and I think, once again, it tries to reinvent how we approach a sequel so that it doesn’t feel like one. You know, so it feels like it earns a place, [it’s] its own original movie and a satisfying film that just happens to have characters that we have grown to appreciate from a previous entry.

So would you be up for another visit from The Collector? You can read more from Dunstan, including some insight into his script for GOD OF WAR, right HERE.
