Columbia Pictures ordered a sequel to this year's Escape Room, a surprise smash in the January box office wasteland, with Adam Robitel returning to direct. The sequel is set to be released on April 17, 2020.

The original starred Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood), Logan Miller (The Walking Dead), and Taylor Russell (Lost in Space) and grossed $120 million globally on a meager 9M budget.

Similarly, the Saw film grossed 103 million on a 1.2M budget. Cumulatively, the franchise grossed over $873.3 million and is credited for kickstarting the torture porn subgenre of the 00's.
