One of the most disappointing indie films I’ve ever seen is Colin and Greg Strause’s Skyline. It carried a similar issue that Godzilla has, as the characters are completely removed from the action. If you recall, the 2010 Skyline followed a group of people watching an alien attack from inside of their penthouse. Not fun.
The Strouse’s have always said they intended on making a sequel, and are now putting things in motion at the ongoing Cannes market.
Below is the first sales art for Beyond Skyline, which is to be directed this time by Liam O’Donnell, who worked on some effects in Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem and Iron Man 2. He co-wrote the screenplay with Joshua Cordes. The duo wrote the first film, too.
Hydraulx Entertainment is behind the sequel, and do some seriously badass effects work. If only they could find a way to mix that with quality writing/directing.
