First Details Of The Sequel To Monsters

Answering my old question about whether the sequel to Monsters will be a new movie or a TV series, Vertigo Films have announced a follow-up movie over at Cannes.

Set to enter production this September, and likely to be shot in Argentina, the second film will tell a new story set in the same world as the first. Brent Bonacorso and Jesse Atlas are set to direct, making their feature debut after the short film Now and Nowhere, as well as several ads and music promos. Now and Nowhere was certainly interesting* so that’s encouraging.

According to producer Alan Niblo, a veteran of the opening installment,  the film will be a Heart of Darkness-style story, which probably means there’s going to be a trip along a river, and most likely into the heart of monster territory. He also promises that this new chapter will retain the intelligence of the first part** while also being more of a genre film.

The lead characters this time are going to be a pair of brothers, about whom we know absolutely nothing, and they will be joined in the cast by a greater variety of digitally created aliens than Gareth Edwards ever deemed necessary.

All this on a budget of under $5 million which is at least five times the spend on the original – or up to fifty times as much, depending on who you believe.

*I’m not just saying that because it “borrowed” from Terry Gilliam.

**Can a film be intelligent? Do they mean “talky”?
