Well, that didn’t take long.

Having made more than $25 million at the box office since its release, Universal has already green-lit Unfriended 2. It will be penned by the writer of the first film, Nelson Greaves.

Having been made with a budget of just one million dollars, Unfriended is a dream project for any studio: a low budget horror that makes plenty of profit in cinemas.

“Taking place entirely on a MacBook screen, the film follows six high school friends who receive a Skype message from their deceased classmate, Laura Barns. A year earlier, a video was anonymously posted online, showing her drunk and passed out at a party, and led her to commit suicide. Her ghost returned to seek vengeance on all six of her classmates in an attempt to scare them into revealing who posted the video.”

Unfriended was produced by Timur Bekmambetov and directed by Leo Gabriadze. You can check out the trailer below.

Are you happy to hear about the sequel? We would like to know what social media platform the film will tackle next: someone seeking revenge for a sexual Snapchat, perhaps?
