Another 30 Days of Night
09.04.09 by BJSprecher
The original 30 Days of Night movie, released in 2007, was one of the forerunners of Hollywood's resurgent interest in vampire movies, so it's no wonder that a sequel is in the works now that America's in the throes of vampire mania thanks to movies like Twilight and HBO's True Blood. According to a recent report, shooting on 30 Day of Night: Dark Days is expected to begin in October in Vancouver, Canada, with Ben Ketai directing from a script that he wrote with Steve Niles, creator of the comic book series that inspired the features.
It was also reported that the character of Stella Oleson, played by Melissa George in the first movie, would be recast. There's no word on whether Josh Hartnett, who played Eben Oleson, Stella's estranged husband and the hero of the first movie, will appear in the sequel. Eben became a vampire at the end of 30 Days of Night, but if the movie sequel follows the comic book sequel, Dark Days, Eben may be resurrected, opening the door for Hartnett to return.
