Doctor Strange and Sinister director Scott Derrickson has revealed he will be making his return to the R-rated horror genre after he has finished production on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Recently, Derrickson took to Twitter to announce his return to horror with his long-time collaborator C. Robert Cargill, who co-wrote Doctor Strange and the Sinister series alongside Derrickson.
“I’m often asked if I’ll ever return to R-rated horror. The answer is a resounding YES,” Derrickson tweeted. “After Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, I’ll go straight into a horror film I’ve already written with [C. Robert Cargill].”

Cargill then responded with a follow-up tweet stating, “might as well also tell you that it’s an adaptation of a Joe Hill joint. Everything else we gotta keep quiet ATM.”
Man, thanks for all the love, you guys. @scottderrickson and I have been sitting on this secret for a while, but we're super excited about it. Can't wait to make it.
