Quiver Distribution has announced that Lulu Wilson (Modern Love, The Glorias, The Haunting of Hill House) is set to reprise her role as the titular character in Becky 2: The Wrath of Becky, the sequel to the 2020 sleeper-hit horror thriller Becky, which topped the U.S. box office upon its June 2020 release. The new chapter, which is written and directed by Matt Angel and Suzanne Coote (The Open House, Hypnotic), also stars Seann William Scott (American Pie, “Welcome to Flatch,” “Lethal Weapon”). Principal photography on the film recently wrapped in New Jersey. Quiver Distribution is planning an early 2023 release and holds the worldwide rights.
The film is produced by Russ Posternak of Post Film, Raphael Margules, JD Lifshitz and Tracy Rosenblum of BoulderLight Pictures and Chadd Harbold. Yale Productions’ Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman also serve as producers. Quiver Distribution’s Berry Meyerowitz, Jeff Sackman and Larry Greenberg are executive producers, along with Lulu Wilson, Seann William Scott, Nick Morris, and Jon Millot and Cary Murnion (Bushwick, Cooties) who directed the original film. Production financing was provided by Media Finance Capital and Rainmaker Films.
After living off the grid for two years, Becky finds herself going toe to toe against Darryl, the leader of a fascist organization, on the eve of an organized attack.
“We’re thrilled to bring back our favorite young heroine in Becky 2: The Wrath of Becky,” said Quiver Distribution Co-Presidents Meyerowitz and Sackman. “Brought to life by the fantastic Lulu Wilson, audiences will continue to root for Becky as she fights back against new evil forces.”
“Audiences have been asking for a Becky sequel since the film’s 2020 premiere and we’re proud to work with Quiver again to extend the franchise,” commented producer Russ Posternak. “Our goal was to up the ante from Becky 1 in every way imaginable and with Matt and Suz’s wild script and Seann William Scott’s turn as our terrifying villain opposite Lulu’s Becky, we know we’ll deliver the thrills, gore and heart that audiences loved in the original.“
