The Killer Reception Continues Five Years Later

The horror world celebrated a killer wedding in 2019 with directors Tyler Gillet and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin’s Ready or Not. Five years later, news reached fans that the reception continues with the main actress, Samara Weaving, returning for a bloody sequel. 

 ‘Ready or Not’ for A Deadly Wedding 

Ready or Not follows the Le Domas family who had long ago made a deal with the demon Le Bail (played by producer James Vanderbilt) for fortune with the curse of having to play a deadly game at midnight of each family wedding. Grace (played by Weaving) is the unfortunate bride-to-be as she becomes prey in a dangerous game of hide and seek. This campy and horrific film would reach more success than originally anticipated and would eventually lead to directors Gillet and Bettinelli-Olpin working on Scream (2022) and Abigail (2024) years later. Five years after the original film, fans are left wondering when a sequel would come out for a “honeymoon.”

Recently, Jeff Sneider of The Insneider reported that not only was a sequel in early development but that Samara Weaving would be reprising her role. There has been no word yet of original writers Guy Busick and R. Christopher Murphey returning, but fans have been told that Adam Robitel (Insidious: The Last Key and The Taking of Deborah Logan) would be the sequel’s main director.

Bride 2 Be in ‘Ready or Not’

Despite excitement over a Ready or Not sequel in the works, fans are left to speculate where the story might go. After all, the film had a solid plot with a solid ending. However, wherever there is a wedding there’s a honeymoon. With Grace left to the family’s cursed fortune at the end of the first film, fans were left to question if the curse had broken or was merely passed on. 

Unfortunately, no more is yet known of the upcoming sequel. Fans can continue to stay updated for a sequel here on Dead Talk News and can stream Ready or Not now on Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video.
