Toby Wilkins, who helmed "The Grudge 3", was also behind the well-received indie horror film "Splinter." Fango caught up with him, and here's what he had to say about a "Splinter 2."
"It would be a shame not to explore how this entity could spread and take over a larger-scale environment. I would like to set a sequel in a small town and maybe have the beast claim more victims. You know, when we were developing the look of the creature, Quantum Creations, which did the design, gave us a dozen sketches of all these different configurations. I had to pick one, and that’s what ended up in the movie—and I was happy with that design—but there were about 11 other amazing ideas presented to me. I would like to see those brought to life, and I would definitely like to expand on that world in a Splinter 2."
