Get ready to go back to the Escape Room.
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Colombia Pictures is currently developing a sequel to last month’s Escape Room. The original creative team behind the first film is returning for the follow-up, including director Adam Robitel, screenwriter Bragi F. Schut and producer Neal H. Moritz.
The first Escape Room followed a group of strangers who are invited to test out a highly-advanced escape room prototype in hopes of winning $10,000, only to find out they’ve become a part of something much greater and more sinister than they know. The film exceeded opening weekend expectations with $18 million and went on to amass a impressive $118.6 million globally off the back of a meager $9 million production budget.
No plot or casting details are known at this time, but Escape Room 2 is set to hit theaters April 17, 2020.
