EXCLUSIVE: Acrophobia sufferers look away now, the makers of vertigo thriller Fall are plotting a sequel after the film became an unexpected hit on Netflix internationally.
British producer Tea Shop Productions and director Scott Mann are discussing ideas for a second movie, which will look to unsettle audiences with another terrifying tale set at a great height.
Fall premiered last August and stars Grace Caroline Currey (Shazam! Fury of the Gods) and Virginia Gardner (Gaslit) as friends who scale and get stuck up a 2,000-foot radio tower in the desert.
The indie thriller grossed close to $22M after being made on a $5M budget and has enjoyed word-of-mouth success on streaming services including Netflix, where it has scored top-10 rankings in four territories. It is available on Starz in the U.S.
Fall has been Netflix’s second most-watched movie in the UK for two consecutive weeks, with only Idris Elba’s Luther: The Fallen Sun performing better.
The film debuted on Netflix in the UK in January and Deadline understands it has performed impressively for the streaming service, which has not dedicated marketing resources to the title.
Tea Shop cofounder James Harris said Fall‘s simple central conceit and carefully curated artwork and trailers have helped get audiences talking.
“We were pleasantly surprised by how everybody has such a visceral reaction to it,” he said. “It is one of those movies where word of mouth really helps.”
Mark Lane, Tea Shop’s other co-founder, added: “It’s an easy thing for people to pick up on a streamer. You can see the concept in the poster image and we’re finding that if people try it, they are getting hooked instantly.”
Being in control of the marketing materials was important, Harris said.
