'Megan Is Missing' Director On Making A Sequel To The Film: 'Never Say Never'

Last weekend, the 2011 movie Megan is Missing caused a big stir on social media.

Director Michael Goi revealed at the time that the movie was going viral on TikTok.

“Apologies to those who are already posting about how the movie is already freaked them out. Fair warning to those of you who are still contemplating watching the film,” he shared in the middle of his statement about watching the film.

Now, Michael is revealing more about the movie and how he was approached for a remake of the film.

“I don’t know that I could make this movie now,” he said honestly, in an interview with EW. “It was probably like eight or nine years ago, there was a production company in Mexico that wanted to do a Spanish version of Megan Is Missing, they contacted us and asked if I would go to Mexico City and remake the whole movie with Mexican children in Spanish.”

But, he turned them down.

“I said, ‘No, I just don’t want to make the movie again. I don’t want to go there again.’ But if I were inclined to make it, I don’t know that I would change them much,” Michael added. “I mean, I remember when we were casting, casting took a long time just to get the right combination of kids, and to make sure all the parents were on board, because I refused to shoot if a parent wasn’t there with their child on set every day.”

“I’ve tried to make the point in the movie subtly — maybe not too subtly — about the fact that the cute white girls get all the airplay on television…it’s part of the point,” he emphasized. “I need to have the audience when they watch this immediately associate those missing children or reports with what they actually see on television every night, in order to take them where I want them to go.”

Michael also talked about the possibility of a sequel to the movie, and he isn’t opposed to it.

“I wouldn’t say no — you know, never say never,” he told the magazine. “I thought about it a couple of times, but there was really no angle that I could see that I would want to to pursue yet.”

He adds, “If I approach this subject again, I would need to have some perspective on the people who actually conduct searches to find these kids and the emotional toll it takes on them.”

Megan is Missing is available to view on YouTube, Google Play, iTunes and Amazon Prime.

Controversial 2011 Horror Film 'Megan Is Missing' Is Going Viral on TikTok

Megan Is Missing is huge on TikTok.

The 2011 found-footage horror film, which was banned in New Zealand for objectionable content amid heavy criticism for its subject matter, is gaining a resurgence thanks to renewed interest and discussion from TikTok users.

Here’s a plot summary: “Fourteen-year-old Megan and her best friend Amy spend a lot of time on the internet, posting videos of themselves and chatting with guys online. One night Megan chats with a guy named Josh who convinces her to meet him for a date. The next day, Megan is missing—forever. Based on actual cases of child abduction, this thriller will keep you riveted, as you realize how easy it is to fall victim to harm in this technological age.”

Writer-director Michael Goi got on TikTok to issue a statement.

“I got a text from Amber Perkins, the lead actress in my movie, that it’s exploding on TikTok at the moment. I didn’t get to give you the customary warnings that I used to give people before they watched Megan Is Missing, which are: do not watch the movie in the middle of the night, do not watch the movie alone, and if you see the words “Photo No. 1″ pop up on your screen, you have about four seconds to shut off the movie if you’re already kind of freaking out before you start seeing things that maybe you don’t want to see. Apologies to those who are already posting about how the movie is already freaked them out. Fair warning to those of you who are still contemplating watching the film,” he said.
