First Look: First Photos from Jon Harris' The Descent 2
Out of nowhere comes our first look at a few new photos from The Descent 2, the sequel to Neil Marshall's claustrophobic horror film from 2006. Believe it or not, this is already done shooting and is currently in post-production, meaning we should expect to hear some screening reports fairly soon. These photos look fantastic because they were taken by professional photographer Ollie Upton and they come from his website (via SlashFilm). I've pulled out a few of the non-spoiler photos from his set that you can see below. Sure these photos look pretty damn good but that doesn't mean it'll be a great sequel. What do you think?
Click on any of them to head over to Ollie's website to see a few more. I'm still a bit baffled by this sequel - I would expect it to have a lot of buzz, but it has almost none! Anyone real reason for this?
Distraught, confused and half-wild with fear, Sarah Carter emerges alone from the Appalachian cave system where she encountered unspeakable terrors. Unable to plausibly explain to the authorities what happened - or why she's covered in blood - Sarah is forced back to the subterranean depths to help locate her five missing friends. As the rescue party drives deeper into uncharted caverns, nightmarish visions of the recent past begin to haunt Sarah and she starts to realize the full horror and futility of the mission.
The Descent 2 is directed by Jon Harris, who is making his directorial debut after working for over 10 years as an editor. The screenplay was co-written by newcomer James McCarthy and James Watkins, who also wrote and directed Eden Lake. The Descent 2 doesn't have a US distributor yet, although we might as well expect that Lionsgate, who distributed the original Descent, will release this sometime in 2009 as well.
