During a recent interview, the actress expressed her admiration for the film’s director, stating, “As you know with the first film, I’m not taking any credit in this; David [Robert Mitchell] is brilliant. I mean, he is brilliant. The whole movie transformed at that point. It was changing the game in the genre, and he wouldn’t ever make a sequel if he didn’t think it was going to top it. He’s very specific, turns down so many… He just knows what he wants to do and what he wants to make.”

Hinting at what can be expected from the It Follows sequel, the actress teased, “It’s just, of course, as everyone says for sequels, literally, though, is just bigger and darker and more f***ed up. Reading it was the craziest thing ever.”

Monroe continued, “I mean, at first, I’m like, ‘Oh, a sequel? Where are we going to go here?’ And I read it, and it’s just so f***ing good. It’s so good. I’m so excited. I think where you’ll meet Jay at this point is maybe not what’s expected, but it’s so cool. It’s just, of course, as everyone says for sequels, literally, though, is just bigger and darker and more f***ed up. Reading it was the craziest thing ever.” 

As for now, no release date for the sequel, “They Follow,” has been declared yet.
