- The co-writer of Sorority Row, Josh Stolberg, is writing a sequel and including the characters of Cassidy and Ellie in the script.
- Stolberg shared a picture of the cast at a restaurant before shooting began and tagged the actors in the post.
- Despite the original film’s poor reception, it has gained a cult following, and fans are excited about another visit to Sorority Row.
It looks like some of the girls of Theta Pi could be returning for a sequel to 2009’s Sorority Row, according to the film’s co-writer, Josh Stolberg.
Stolberg took to his personal X/Twitter page to announce that he’s writing a sequel to the film and that he’s including the characters of Cassidy (Briana Evigan) and Ellie (Rumer Willis) into the script, although he does admit that it’s up to the actresses to actually return for the project.
Not much more is known about the sequel, but it appears that Stolberg has been getting nostalgic about the 2009 film because he also shared a picture of the main members of the cast at a restaurant from the night before shooting began. In attendance at the dinner were Evigan, Willis (said to be off-camera tending to her dog), Margo Harshman, Leah Pipes, Julian Morris, Caroline D’Amore, and Jamie Chung. Stolberg tagged Evigan, Willis, Harshman, Pipers, Morris, and D’Amore in the post, and in another posting on Instagram of the same image, he asked “Who’s coming back!!!!!?” while also mentioning others from the film not pictured, including Audrina Patridge, Matt O’Leary, Matt Lanter, Maxx Henard, and the late Carrie Fisher, who played the housemother in the movie.
Sorority Row is actually a remake of a cult 80s horror film
Sorority Row was directed by Stewart Hendler and co-written by Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger. The film is a remake of the 1982 horror film The House on Sorority Row and follows a group of sorority sisters who cover up the accidental death of one of their fellow sisters after a prank gone wrong. Eight months later, a masked killer begins stalking and murdering the girls involved in the prank on the night of their graduation. Evigan’s Cassidy, Willis’ Ellie, and D’Amore’s Maggie were the girls who survived the killer’s wrath by the end of the film.
10 Deaths in Slasher Horror Movies We Cheered About
Slasher movies often give us fodder characters and villains that we can’t wait to see perish. Here are 10 from the horror subgenre we cheered about.
The film wasn’t a huge hit upon release and received poor reviews, registering a 26 percent rotten score on Rotten Tomatoes, and grossing $11.9 million domestically and $27.2 million worldwide on a $12.5 million budget. Despite the initial poor reception, the film has gained a bit of a cult following for embracing slasher movie tropes. Judging by some of the reactions to Stolberg’s post, it seems like fans are more than ready for another visit to Sorority Row.
Unfortunately, Sorority Row isn’t available to stream anywhere, but you can rent the film on Apple TV, Google Play, and Vudu.
