Jen and I are very proud to announce that we will be taking part in the ABCS OF DEATH sequel. We loved the first film and are very honored to be a part of the next instalment. I don't want to sound crazy or anything, but I have been thinking of something fucking insane for our letter. It's on.

We heard three directors names at the time of the initial announcement: animator Bill Plympton, ROOM 237 director Rodney Ascher and THE LAST CIRCUS helmer Alex de la Iglesia.
