Before The Mask

HUGE fan of the first film, so this is really neat news.

According to director/creator Scott Glosserman, they want to do a sequel, but it is far from a certainty. The script for it picks up right at the end of the first film. Same tone, same aesthetics. Together with Behind the Mask co-writer David J. Stieve, Glosserman has found a way to continue the story of Leslie (Nathan Baesel) and Taylor (Angela Goethals) that makes sense. They've already spoken with Robert Englund to reprise his Ahab role of Doc Halloran. The filmmakers even have locations waiting, and most of the cast is in place and nailed down, but there no financiers as of yet.

In Before the Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon, we find Leslie disappointed and depressed that his fame did not catch on. He wants to get back to work.
