Hot on the heels of Katie Holmes being announced for The Boy 2, now comes word on another new addition for the sequel.
Courtesy of Deadline, Christopher Convery has joined the follow-up to play the son of Holmes’ character. The youngster is likely best known to genre fans for roles in Gotham and The Girl in the Spider’s Web. William Brent Bell will be back to direct, and Stacey Menear is back to pen the sequel’s screenplay.
The early word on the follow-up reads:
Unaware of the terrifying history of Heelshire Mansion, a young family moves into the estate, where their young son soon makes an unsettling new friend, an eerily life-like doll he calls Brahms.
Sure, The Boy wasn’t all that bad, but was a sequel ever particularly demanded or needed?
Expect more on this as it continues to develop.
