Horror anthology fans rejoice: The ABCs of Death will follow in the footsteps of fellow indie anthology V/H/S by giving birth to a sequel. ABCs of Death 2 is busy gathering a new batch of 26 directors (each to be assigned a different letter of the alphabet), which already includes notable names like Marcus Dunstan (The Collector, The Collection), Vincenzo Natali (Splice, Cube), Larry Fessenden (The Last Winter, Wendigo), Álex de la Iglesia (The Last Circus, The Oxford Murders, The Baby's Room), Rodney Ascher (Room 237), France's Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside), Japan's Sion Sono (Cold Fish), Israel's Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (Rabies), Canada's Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary, Dead Hooker in a Trunk), Great Britain's Julian Gilbey (A Lonely Place to Die) and animator Bill Plympton. Also on board are lesser-known filmmakers like E.L. Katz, Jerome Sable, Robert Morgan, the Philippines' Erik Matti, Lithuania's Kristina Buozyte and Bruno Samper, Nigeria's Lancelot Imasuen and Brazil's Dennison Ramalho. As with the first movie, there will be a contest to decide the final director. Magnet Releasing plans to unleash ABCs of Death 2 sometime in 2014.
