Escape Room 2, a sequel to last year’s Escape Room, has wrapped filming in South Africa according to a social media post from the film’s director, Adam Robitel.
“After 50 days of principle, and 20 days of 2nd Unit, we have officially wrapped photography on Escape Room 2,” Robitel said in a post earlier this morning while adding his gratitude to the South African crew. “It’s always bittersweet to come to the end, but I can’t wait to share what machinations Minos has in store.”
Escape Room 2 follows up the events of the first film which found six strangers trapped inside an escape room created by the Minos Corporation where the price of failure was death.
Escape Room, which also filmed in South Africa, starred Taylor Russell (Lost in Space), Logan Miller (Love Simon), Jay Ellis (In a Relationship), Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs Evil), Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood), and Nik Dodani (Alex Strangelove).
Miller and Russell returned for the sequel joined by Indya Moore (Pose), Holland Roden (MTV’s Teen Wolf), Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan), Thomas Cocquerel (In Like Flynn), and Carlito Olivero (Bad Samaritan).
Details on the plot of the second film in the franchise are being kept under wraps, but we know from the end of the first that Miller and Russell’s characters had decided to attempt to take down the Minos Corporation. It will be interesting to see how that plays out going in the sequel.
The new film is set for release on November 3, 2020.
