Damián Szifron has confirmed that he is penning a sequel to the wickedly dark 2014 anthology Wild Tales.
If you’ve never had the pleasure, Damián Szifron’s Wild Tales is a biting anthology film that delivers a series of darkly comedic and shocking stories focusing around the more taboo impulses that drive us as human beings to acts that we can’t always rationalise.
It’s the most watched film to ever come out of Argentina and is a visceral and unforgettable experience. In fact, did we say ‘pleasure’ at the beginning of this piece? Perhaps that’s the right word but we can think of a few less celebratory words that would fit appropriately too.
It’s certainly a film that lingers long in the memory, long enough that almost a decade since its release, the news that director Damián Szifron is working on a follow-up has caused a stir, especially given that the sequel sounds like it might be looking to escalate the drama, if such a thing is possible.
Szifron has announced that his follow-up to Wild Tales will be called Wild World although he’s also penning another project currently titled The Simulators, so it might be some time before we hear anything else regarding Wild World. That title suggests that the action may be situated outside of Argentina this time though, an intriguing prospect indeed.
Despite not really finding too much success with this year’s To Catch A Killer, 2014’s Wild Tales remains a notable film since it first emerged as a surprise indie hit out of Cannes in 2014, grossing over $3 million on the way to an impressive $44 million global haul. We imagine that the legacy of Wild Tales will enable Szifron to get his sequel off the ground and we’ll bring you more updates on the project as we hear them.
