The sub-title for STIR OF ECHOES 2 has changed. Instead of "The Dead Speak, the movie
is now titled STIR OF ECHOES: THE HOMECOMING. In STIR OF ECHOES 2, Rob Lowe plays
National Guard Captain Ted Cogan, who, after accidentally killing innocent civilians in Iraq,
becomes haunted by the vengeful spirts of the dead. As Cogan begins to lose his grip on
both his family and his sanity, he enlists the aid of equally unhinged psychic Jake Witzky
to help understand his terrifying and relentless spectral visions. With Witzky’s advice, the
traumatized veteran eventually realizes what measures he must take to rid himself of the
ghosts once and for all—though the price to pay may be more than he bargained for. The
dead will speak in
2007.

Now this is a sequel we're waiting to see. We just posted up the first picture from STIR OF
ECHOES 2: THE DEAD SPEAK. According to Fangoria, the film is currently shooting in
Toronto under Canadian writer/director Ernie (CUBE ZERO) Barbarash for Lionsgate release
next year. Though not a direct sequel in the truest sense (the first film’s lead Kevin Bacon
has been replaced with THE STAND’s Rob Lowe), Barbarash is adamant that his admittedly
lower-budgeted picture is intended as a both a companion piece and tribute to Matheson’s
classic, blood-freezing source novel.

"This film is very much aligned with the original in both tone and style," the filmmaker
promises.
"We’ve tried to take the themes, structure and especially the look of Koepp’s
film and expand on them. Fans of both the movie and the novel will feel like they’re in
very familiar territory, but we’ve added some dramatic weight that takes the movie to a
completely different level."

In THE DEAD SPEAK, Lowe plays National Guard Captain Ted Cogan, who, after
accidentally killing innocent civilians in Iraq, becomes haunted by the vengeful spirts of the
dead. As Cogan begins to lose his grip on both his family and his sanity, he enlists the aid
of equally unhinged psychic Jake Witzky to help understand his terrifying and relentless
spectral visions. With Witzky’s advice, the traumatized veteran eventually realizes what
measures he must take to rid himself of the ghosts once and for all—though the price to
pay may be more than he bargained for.

It's been a whole year since we've reported anything on a STIR OF ECHOES sequel. The
original concept was brought up last year but it just never went through. Now it looks like
Lions Gate will actually be making the movie, with a different name and a different script.
The first cast member to join is Rob Lowe. Lowe will be playing a soldier who comes home
from the Iraq war and is plagued by visions of the dead. STIR OF ECHOES 2: THE DEAD
SPEAK is being talked as a direct to video sequel written by Ernie Barbarash
