Could this be a franchise in the making?
What happens to the sequel of a film that does not hit box office gold? Why, direct to DVD, of course! It seems that is exactly what will happen with the sequel to ' 30 Days of Night' according to MTV. Editor-in-Chief of IDW Publishing, Chris Ryall posted on his twitter account on Monday that filming for the sequel has begun in Vancouver, Canada.
"Not something I've seen spread around anywhere else yet, but the sequel to '30 Days of Night,' 'Dark Days,' began shooting in Vancouver today."
Few additional details concerning the project have been revealed. According to a recent MTV report, not all members of the original cast will be returning for the sequel. Actress Melissa George (30 Days Of Night, In Treatment) will not be reprising her role as Stella Oleson in 30 Days Of Night: Dark Days. In her stead, Kiele Sanchez (Lost, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium) will be replacing her.
With a likely probability that 30 Days of Night: Dark Days going direct to DVD release, do you think you will be more or less likely to see it? Are you looking forward to the sequel? Did you see the first film? Have you read the comic by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith?
