The sequel no one knew they wanted but will get anyway has just picked up a director. The movie is SCREAMERS 2, the director is Sheldon Wilson, who is responsible for KAW and SHALLOW GROUND. The flick is set to roll in January.
“Screamers 2” fixes on a group of humans from earth, including Lt. Victoria Bronte, who arrive on Sirius 6-B to investigate an SOS signal sent out from the planet, which has been supposedly deserted since the destruction of the man-made weapons known as "screamers."
Once the squad arrives, they find a group of human survivors eking out an existence in an old military outpost, but more important, they discover that the threat of the screamers has become even more insidious, now that they're able to morph into human form.
I sort've remember liking SCREAMERS (hard not to like anything with Peter Weller), but that was about 10 years ago and I haven't thought about it since. It would appear that sequels to movies I wasn't aware were hits (JOYRIDE 2, LAKE PLACID 2, THE MESSENGERS 2) are all the rage right now. I suppose in about 10 years we can expect a sequel to THE MIST.
