Seriously, guys—this’ll kill you. If you loved watching Paris Hilton take a pipe to the eye in the first House of Wax remake, well, sad to say you won’t be getting another chance to see it. Director Jaume Collet-Serra, recently talking about his upcoming film Orphan, made it pretty clear that he had absolutely no knowledge of a sequel in the works, and would be well-placed to know if there were one.
Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that there isn’t one. Despite Dark Castle’s protestations that they never ever ever do sequels, we all have to remember a little thing called Return to the House on Haunted Hill. Yes, it was a direct to video sequel, but it was a sequel nonetheless. So the next time the Castle bunch gets on its high horse and swears on their children’s lives that there are NO SEQUELS EVER from them, you can deflate their egos nicely just by bringing that up.
However, the key takeaway remains…chances of more House of Wax are pretty slim indeed.
