Principal photography is underway in Jordan on Monsters: Dark Continent, the sequel to Gareth Edwards Monsters, which landed him the Godzilla job. Edwards will exec produce. Tom Green (the Misfits director, not the Canadian comedian) will be making his feature debut with the film starring Johnny Harris, Sam Keeley, and Joe Dempsie (pictured above).
“In Dark Continent, Infected Zones have spread across the world. While US military try to wipe out the monsters, they soon realize they face resistance from a number of corners.”
The latter actor recently spoke up about the anticipated sequel, which we knew would be set “some years after” Edwards’ cult hit original. He told Metro UK, “We’re filming it in Jordan now, then we go to Detroit to finish it. It’s going to look incredible. There’s a great atmosphere on set and hopefully it will turn out to be pretty decent. It’s set a few years after the first movie. Monsters have been eradicated from the US but not from other parts of the world. It’s a metaphor for the US’s relationship with the Middle East in some ways. It’s more of a war movie than a monster one.”
Filming will take place in Jordan for five weeks, followed by a week in Detroit. Head inside for the longer synopsis! READ MORE
