That affirmation is clearly nice information for followers of “The Visitor,” however these followers might wish to mood their expectations in regards to the additional adventures of David, Anna, and Luke, as Simon Barrett went on to tease that “one thing associated” to the unique movie will not be what followers suppose and will certainly not be a characteristic movie.
“[I]t is concretely taking place, however it isn’t a characteristic movie or a comic book guide, as a result of I feel that is what folks would count on us to do. And I feel that is the factor that nobody really needs us to do, as a result of I feel if we really made a characteristic movie model of ‘The Visitor 2,’ or realistically, the graphic novel model would simply be a less expensive model of attempting to attain type of the identical factor narratively,” Barrett stated. He continued by explaining why he and Adam Wingard are avoiding a straight cinematic sequel for his or her beloved movie: “I feel that is a simple mistake for filmmakers to fall into, is that this notion of like, ‘Oh, I did this factor and folks favored it. So I ought to do extra of that, in a direct method.’ I feel you actually need to watch out of the truth that that fandom that you’ve got, particularly with a movie like ‘The Visitor,’ it is a valuable factor. And other people like ‘The Visitor,’ I feel partially, as a result of there is not a ‘Visitor 2,’ and we did not spoil it.”
Logic apart, the open-ended finale of “The Visitor” form of felt tailored for a sequel, even when that was by no means a part of the plan. As it’s, Wingard and Barrett are clearly out to once more subvert conventions with their follow-up. And nonetheless they select to try this, followers of “The Visitor” ought to be past stoked to see what craziness they’re cooking up.
