Television director Tom Green will be behind the camera of MONSTERS: THE DARK CONTINENT, which is the sequel to Gareth Edwards' MONSTERS. Today the first artwork for the flick has graced our presence and we've got it right here for you all. I wanted to love MONSTERS, but I found myself forcing my way through it. It was an interesting concept and had some solid visuals, but I went into it to see me some monsters tearing people limb from limb—you know, the kind of stuff monsters are supposed to do. That being said, I have high hopes for the sequel, I just hope it delivers more of the red stuff this time around.
Seven years on from the events of Monsters, and the ‘Infected Zones’ have spread worldwide. Humans have been knocked off the top of the food chain, with disparate communities struggling for survival. American soldiers are being sent abroad to protect US interests from the Monsters, but the war is far from being won.
Noah, a haunted soldier with several tours under his belt, is sent on a mission: an American soldier has gone rogue deep in the Infected Zone, and Noah must reach him and take him out. But when Noah’s unit and transport are destroyed, he finds himself with only a young and inexperienced cadet for company – the brother of the man Noah has been sent to kill.
Executive produced by Edwards, MONSTERS: THE DARK CONTINENT was written by Jay Basu and stars Joe Dempsie, Johnny Harris, Sofia Boutella and Sam Keeley. Look for the film in 2014.
