The Descent

If you're a horror fan in the slightest, or maybe just a fan of great filmmaking, then you definitely know The Descent. It was that British indie horror film about some girls trapped in a cave that came out of nowhere late last year and scared the shit out of everyone who saw it. It did so well (making $26M in the US and $30M in the international at the box office), that of course they're making a sequel. Fangoria spoke recently with Neil Marshall, who wrote and directed The Descent, about the upcoming sequel titled The De2cent. He confirms that he's not directing but instead that Descent editor Jon Harris will be.

Although a script isn't even complete, Neil Marshall spoke at Comic-Con briefly about The De2cent in an article we ran back in late July. This update from Fangoria confirms the new director.

"I will not be directing THE DESCENT 2," he revealed. "But I will be overseeing every aspect of the production. There's nothing to oversee yet, though, as the script is currently being written. My DESCENT editor Jon Harris will make his feature directing debut with the sequel, and I can't think of a better man for the job."

Great enthusiasm and if he puts his faith fully in Jon Harris, then I would as well. The Descent was a perfectly crafted claustrophobic horror movie and I would attest that some great editing had to do with the tension and atmosphere that he created, along with everything else that Marshall did. The De2cent is still a long ways out but I'm resting assured that it will live up to the first one quite a bit.
