Hostel Returns

Sequel set for macabre horror hit.

by IGN FilmForce

January 10, 2006 - Lions Gate Films and Sony's Screen Gems are, not surprisingly, keen to crank out a sequel to the surprise horror hit Hostel. The modestly-budgeted movie debuted at the top of the North American box office this weekend with around $20 million.

The studios, which will once again split production and distribution responsibilities, are hoping to strike while the iron is hot and rush the film into production -- much like Lions Gate successfully did with Saw and Saw II. Hostel 2 would reportedly be put on the fast track for an early 2007 release.

Industry insider mag Variety reveals that filmmaker Eli Roth is in negotiations to return, but story ideas for the possible second installment in the grisly series are being keptĀ  under wraps.

Hostel stars Jay Hernandez and Derek Richardson as two American college buddies Paxton and Josh who go backpacking through Europe and get caught up in a sick and twisted scenario where rich and powerful men from around the world brutally torture their captives.
