BROTHERS BY BLOOD Star Maika Monroe Wouldn't Hesitate To Return For An IT FOLLOWS Sequel - <font color=red>EXCLUSIVE</font>

It Follows was a hit when it was released in 2014, and while those sequel talks never seemed to pan out, star Maika Monroe is 100% on board with starring in a follow-up (no pun intended) if it happens...

Brothers by Blood takes place in Philadelphia, and picks up with eight-year-old Peter Flood after he helplessly watches on as his little sister is killed by a neighbour’s reckless driving. Tormented with grief and resentment, his father finds revenge as the only solution, leaving lasting generational wounds.

Thirty years later, Peter still wrestles with the guilt he feels over his sister’s death and his father’s vengeance. As he tries to distance himself from the criminal family business, his cousin, Michael, becomes more powerful in the hierarchy. Bonded by blood, neither man can escape violence as they are dragged further into a chilling cycle of betrayal and retribution. You can find our review here.

The movie stars Matthias Schoenaert (The Old Guard), Joel Kinnaman (The Suicide Squad), and Maika Monroe (The Stranger), and we recently caught up with the latter to discuss her taking on the role of Grace.

We'll have more on the movie for you soon, but we had to ask Maika about the possibility of an It Follows sequel. Released in 2014, the horror movie captivated audiences and grossed $23.3 million worldwide against a $2 million budget, becoming something of a cult classic in the process. There was once talk of a sequel, but it's been a while, so would the actress still be interested in a follow-up?

"Yeah, one of my favourite directors I've worked with is David [Robert Mitchell]. I would do anything to be able to work with him again!" she tells us. "Whether it's an It Follows sequel or something else, I think he's so insanely talented, and I'm looking forward to his upcoming projects that he has."

We also asked Maika whether she ever expected It Follows to resonate with horror fans the way it has.

"No, I had no idea the impact it would have. I remember on set, and I don't usually watch playback, but there were a couple of times where we were doing really long shots, and it was helpful to watch and understand the movement of the camera, and I remember where I was just like, 'Whoa! These shots are stunning.' I'd never really seen horror shot this way, so there were moments where I said, 'Oh man, maybe this will turn out to be something really cool,' but you never really know."

"It's pretty wild," Maika concluded, "and it's just incredible how this has impacted so many people and how some of them still to this day love the film so much. It's pretty cool."

Brothers by Blood will be released in Select theaters, On VOD & Digital on January 22nd, 2021.
