After directing the stellar indie Monsters, filmmaker Gareth Edwards moved on to blockbuster monsters with his forthcoming new take on Godzilla. But Vertigo Films is keeping the universe alive with Monsters: Dark Continent. This time Edwards is only executive producing with Tom Green (no, not that one) making his directorial debut with the story of a soldier who has to go into another infected zone in the Middle East to fine his lost comrade. Now the first teaser trailer is here, and it doesn't show much, but we do see a glimpse of some dead monsters being hauled away as soldiers arrive, looking a bit timid. Watch?
Monsters: Dark Continent is the sequel to Gareth Edwards' Monsters. Tom Green ("Misfits") makes his feature directorial debut with a script from Jay Basu. Johnny Harris (Welcome To The Punch), Sam Keeley (What Richard Did) and Joe Dempsie ("Game Of Thrones") star in the film which moves the action to another Infected Zone, a U.S. military-dominated Middle East, where a soldier is looking for his lost comrade. Vertigo Films has slated the sequel for release in the United Kingdom sometime in 2014, but there's no indication of when it might make it way to the United States. Stay tuned for anymore updates.
