Previously, West had already stated that he was developing the script for the third film.
“I am very grateful to A24 for having had the opportunity to do this. One of the coolest parts of this movie is the notion that there’s something bigger behind it all. what can i say about [a pré-sequência] ‘Pearl’, which we’ve already filmed, is going to be focused on that character. We will find out more about her. It will have a very different aesthetic than ‘X’. They can be watched independently, but the two films complement each other in a specific way.”
he completes, “The horror ‘X’ is influenced by independent films from the 70s, while ‘Pearl’ will address a very different era of cinema. If we get the chance to do the third movie, it will also be inspired by a different era.”
