Ouija 2 gets a 2016 release date, Oculus duo to write the script

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

We knew it was probably happening, but now there’s no escaping it: OUIJA 2 is officially moving forward. Universal Pictures has just given the film an October 21, 2016 release date. Is this the new PARANORMAL ACTIVITY? Shut your mouth for even suggesting it!

Mike Flanagan is co-writing the film with his OCULUS partner Jeff Howard. It’s unknown if Stiles White will once again direct; perhaps Flanagan will take the helm? Time will tell.

OCULUS 2 once again…

picks up with a group of unsuspecting friends who must confront their most terrifying fears when they unleash an evil from the other side that only they can send back.

OUIJA, which starred Olivia Cooke, didn’t set the box office on fire – it made $100 million worldwide – but when you consider it only cost about $5 million to make, it’s really no wonder a follow-up is in the cards.

Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis are again on board as producers.
