The new decidedly NSFW trailer for the horror-spoof sequel also has some fun at the expense of those semi-disturbing Facebook Look Back things. The Open Road pic sees Marlon Wayans moving into his dream house with new squeeze Jaime Pressly, but nightmare house is more like it. Michael Tiddes, who directed last year’s original that unearthed $40M domestic, returns to the scene of the crime for A Haunted House 2, and Wayans and Rick Alverez reprise their gigs as writer-producers. Gabriel Iglesias, Ashley Rickards, Steele Stebbins, Essence Atkins, Affion Crocket, Dave Sheridan, Hayes MacArthur, Missi Pyle and Cedric the Entertainer co-star. Have a look:
The found-footage horror thing was screaming for the spoof treatment. Sure enough, last year’s A Haunted House bled domestic audiences to the tune of $40M. Now co-writer and star Marlon Wayans is back for more: A Haunted House 2, which bows March 28, sees him moving into a dream house with new girlfriend Jaime Pressly and her two kids. Para-hilarity ensues. Michael Tiddes is back in the director’s electric chair, with Wayans and Rick Alvarez producing. Here’s the first trailer from Open Road Films:
The first A Haunted House, a spoof on the found-footage horror genre, opened in January with $19M and has grossed $40M+ in the U.S. Open Road announced the sequel last month and now has dated it for March 28, 2014. Marlon Wayans is back to star and is co-writing again with Rick Alvarez, and IM Global’s Octane label is financing and producing. Shooting is set to start this summer.
