Will there be a Dial M For Murder 2? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Dial M For Murder 2

Alfred Hitchcock is one of the best directors to have ever lived, and he directed a slew of great movies over a number of decades. Dial M For Murder was one of his best. It starred Ray Milland and Grace Kelly and was released in 1954. But will there be a Dial M For Murder 2? Or do we have to settle for this one being a one-off thriller? Here’s what we know at the time of writing:

What is Dial M For Murder about?

Tony Wendice is a retired English professional tennis player and married to wealthy socialite Margot. He discovers she’s been having an affair with their friend and crime writer, Mark Halliday. Tony knows about the affair and plots to murder Margot to inherit her fortune, fearing a divorce would leave him with nothing.

Will there be a sequel to Dial M For Murder?

No, Dial M For Murder 2 won’t happen for a very straightforward reason: the story has already been told. The original film was regarded as an entirely self-contained, stand-alone narrative. However, there have been a number of remakes of Hitchcock’s suspenseful thriller over the years, so it’s hard to rule out another one materialising in the future. Having said that, a sequel is less likely, as Hitchcock and all of the main cast have since passed away. 

When could a sequel be released?

The sequel would have at least been discussed if it were in the works. However, since there is currently no information regarding Dial M For Murder 2, it is best to avoid getting your hopes up, as the likelihood of one is extremely low.

Of course, this is all speculation, and if anything changes, we’ll be sure to update you!
