The Boy 2 adds Katie Holmes in the lead role

The sequel to 2016 doll horror The Boy has found its star in the form of Katie Holmes (Dawson’s CreekBatman Begins).

According to Variety, the sequel will revolve around “a young family, unaware of the terrifying history of the estate into which they move, where their young son soon makes an unsettling new friend, an eerily life-like doll he calls Brahms.”

Not much is known about Holmes’ role in the film just yet, but we’re guessing she’ll be playing the young family’s matriarch.

The original The Boy film starred The Walking Dead‘s Lauren Cohen as Greta Evans, an American nanny to a rich English couple that treats a life-sized doll (the very same Brahms) as if it were their own human son. Following a series of disturbing events, Greta starts to believe that the doll is actually alive. It was directed by William Brent Bell , written by Stacey Menear, and starred Rupert Evans, James Russell, Jim Norton and Diana Hardcastle.

Bell will return to direct the sequel, with principle photography set to begin in Victoria, British Columbia, in January next year. Menear will also once again be writing the script. Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi and Eric Reid will produce alongside Matt Berenson, Jim Wedaa and Roy Lee.

Lucchesi said: “Following the success of The Boy, we are thrilled to be working on the next chapter of this chilling Brahms story with Stacey and William. We are also delighted to be continuing our relationship with STX, on this, our third partnership.”
