With Blumhouse’s “The Black Phone” both a critical and commercial success it’s a given that we’ll likely see more from ‘The Grabber’ universe.

Director Scott Derrickson confirmed as much to telling the outlet that a sequel is being discussed.

“There’s already a lot of conversation, a lot of pressure being put on it. I mean, the movie cost $18 million, and it’s going to ultimately make probably $160-170 million worldwide. So they want another one. Of course, they do.”

The “Doctor Strange” filmmaker spoke about a possible sequel earlier in the year.

“Joe Hill pitched me a wonderful idea for a sequel to Black Phone that, if this movie does well, I’m gonna do it. He’s got a great idea, I really liked it. Joe’s very protective and personal about his material, but he came to me with the idea and I was like, ‘That’s how you do a sequel to Black Phone. That’s terrific.’
