While I wasn’t a fan of Greg and Colin Strause‘s Skyline, the Liam O’Donnell-directed Beyond Skyline was an absolute blast from start to finish, while also giving heavy homage to classics like Alien and Predator. I became an immediate fan of O’Donnell and the franchise showed some serious potential.
Now, huge news out of the ongoing American Film Market as Bloody Disgusting can report that O’Donnell is returning to write and produce Skylines, the third film in the growing sci-fi franchise. The Strause brothers are also producing with Matthew Chausse.
Beyond Skyline‘s Lindsey Morgan returns as Captain Rose Corley, a human with extraterrestrial superpowers that mean she is the only person powerful enough to vanquish the marauders. When a virus threatens to turn earth-dwelling friendly alien hybrids against humans, Corley assembles an elite team of mercenaries on a mission to the alien world to save humanity.
Beyond Skyline starred Frank Grillo as a tough-as-nails detective who embarks on a relentless pursuit to free his son from a nightmarish alien warship.
Highland Film Group and XYZ are selling the film at AFM.
