The sequel to 2022’s horror Ash and Bone has just been announced. The new film, titled Ash and Bone 2: A New Chapter, is set to begin filming this June in Detroit, Michigan, with Harley Wallen returning to direct from the script from the first film’s writer Bret Miller.
“After surviving the brutal assault by the McKinley family (Jimmy Doom & Erika Hoveland), the Vanderbilts (Kaiti Wallen, Angelina Danielle Cama, and Harley Wallen) head back to Detroit to pick up their lives and rekindle the family only to find out that the nightmare isn’t over and their traumatic recovery gets interrupted as they are now hunted in the city.”
Sean Whalen (Twister, Rob Zombie’s 3 from Hell), Billy Wirth (The Lost Boys, Godfather of Harlem), and Dawna Lee Heising (Bad President) have joined Angelina Danielle Cama (Tale of Tails), Kaiti Wallen (Ash And Bone), Harley Wallen (Homicide Hunter) and Vida Ghaffari (The Mindy Project) in Painted Creek Productions’ “Ash and Bone 2: A New Chapter“.
Blanca Blanco (Betrayed), Calhoun Koenig (When You Finish Saving the World), and Yan Birch (Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs) will co-star. Producers include Harley Wallen, Kaiti Wallen, Joseph Kelbie Williamson, Jeff Berry, Joseph Victor, and Annette Cama.
“Bret Miller (writer of the original Ash and Bone) and I loved this story and these characters so much we’ve been talking about a sequel since the first table read of the first one,” said Wallen. After they realized the success “Ash and Bone“ was having, they finally let go and started working on the story line that they say will “move to the city” and they have a few new cards up their sleeve. Heising, Ghaffari and The Wallens are repped by The Williamson Management Company.
In the first film, “A troubled teenager is taken to the peace and quiet of the countryside by her father and stepmother to calm down her wild streak. But after she crosses the infamous McKinley family, it becomes clear that sometimes danger lies hidden in the weeds, ready to strike at any moment.”
