Occupation 2 is in the works – a month before the release of Occupation in cinemas across Australia on July 12, writes Cinema Australia. The announcement comes after two sell-out screenings of the Australian-produced, sci-fi thriller last week.
The Occupation sequel is set to serve as an anthology-type film set in the aftermath of an Alien invasion, with the focus on Australia.
Luke Sparke will return as writer/director of Occupation 2 and the film will be produced by Carly Imrie (Occupation, Red Billabong) and Carmel Imrie (Occupation, Red Billabong). Joining them is American co-executive producer, Todd Williams (The Nun, Alex & Me) and co-writer Felix Williamson (Avalon Now, The Circle).
In the film, “A small group of town residents band together after a devastating ground invasion. As they struggle to survive, they realize they must stay one step ahead of their attackers, and work together for a chance to strike back.”
Temuera Morrison (Star Wars, Aquaman), Dan Ewing (Home & Away, Red Billabong), Stephany Jacobsen (Battlestar Galactica, Revenge), Rhiannon Fish (The 100), Charles Mesure (“Desperate Housewives”), Aaron Jeffery (McLeod’s Daughters, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Jacqueline McKenzie (“The 4400”, Deep Blue Sea, Don’t Tell), and Bruce Spence (The Road Warrior) star.
