Bloody Disgusting learned today that Lightning Entertainment has wrapped principal photography last week on the highly anticipated sequel, Quarantine 2: Terminal in Atlanta, GA. Directed by John Pogue, and starring Mercedes Masohn and Josh Cooke, Terminal is a sequel to the box office success Quarantine, Screen Gems’ remake of the Spanish-language horror [REC]. The only details revealed thus far is that the sequel will head into an airport, this morning we got our hands on the official synopsis. Check it below!
“In QUARANTINE, an apartment building in Los Angeles was quarantined by the CDC (Center for Disease Control), trapping the frightened residents inside as a deadly mutant virus turned the residents into rabid killers. QUARANTINE 2: TERMINAL picks up later that night at LAX, as passengers board a flight to Nashville. When a passenger becomes violently ill with a mysterious rabies-like virus, the plane makes an emergency landing at a large metropolitan airport. Jenny (Mercedes Masohn, CBS’s “Three Rivers“), a heroic yet inexperienced flight attendant, takes charge of the safety of her passengers. Relieved when a swarm of heavily equipped emergency vehicles, police units and the CDC arrive, Jenny and the passengers soon discover that they have been quarantined and are now trapped. Desperate to escape, Jenny enlists the help of one of the surviving passengers, a kindergarten teacher, Henry (Josh Cooke, A Fork In The Road, I Love you Man), to devise a plan to survive.”
“I was a big admirer of REC and the work that Dowdles did on QUARANTINE, so I was thrilled when given the opportunity to write and direct the sequel“, says Director John Pogue. “QUARANTINE 2: TERMINAL will expand the mythology behind the first film for fans and ramp up the twisted thrills, building on that universal fear of being trapped on an airplane.”
Special effects make-up designer Rob Hall (The Crazies, Quarantine) helps to bring the horror to life. QUARANTINE 2: TERMINAL is written and directed by John Poque (The Skulls, Ghost Ship) and is produced by Lightning Entertainment’s Marc Bienstock (Pathology, Preacher’s Kid).
