Neal Edelstein’s innovative ghost story iOS app Haunting Melissa — with a script by your obt svt — has begun filming its sequel — with a script also by your obt svt. You can read all about it in the Hollywood Reporter:

Horror movie producer Neal Edelstein challenged traditional distribution methods in 2013 with the launch of Haunting Melissa, a genre film that was released in installments through an iPhone and iPad app. Now he’s back to work on the second installment of the project, Haunting Melissa 2, which has begun principal photography in Calgary, Canada.

Haunting Melissa 2, developed by Edelstein’s Hooked Digital Media, will pick up one month after the events of the first film, which follows a teenage girl who believes her dead mother is haunting her. Best-selling author Andrew Klavan (True Crime) returned to pen the script for the sequel, which stars Kassia Warshawski as the title character.
