30 Days of Night: Dark Days To Be a "War" Movie
Posted 12.23.09 by Ryan
Shooting has wrapped on the 30 Days of Night sequel, 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, and producer J.R. Young told ShockTilYouDrop that fans of the first movie will be very pleased with what he described as a "war movie".
I think the second film definitely stays within the world of the first film and it stays true to the second graphic novel in the series for those fans out there. The story is within that world but there are differences and a lot of that is due to the graphic novel. The first film is very much a survival film and this next one is all about revenge. There's an action component. The last one is a western, this one is more of a war movie. It's taking the battle to the vampires.
Seeking revenge will be Kiele Sanchez, taking over for Melissa George who could not work out her schedule to return. Ben Ketai, who made two 30 Days of Night shorts that premiered on the web, will direct from a script he co-wrote with 30 Days creator Steve Niles. While Ketai is currently working on editing the movie, once he finishes Young and the Ghost House Pictures team, including director Sam Raimi, will consult on the project. Meanwhile, Young is waiting for a release date.
We haven't been given a release date yet. We have a post schedule as to when we want to have the film done by. Then it goes into the studio's hands and they'll figure out when the best date will be. There has been talk about a DVD release. We always work toward to make the best film we can and let it go out where they see fit.
