Hills/Eyes 2 info

Mandrill is scary

Not along ago, our gloriously sick Arrow brethren told you a bit about the upcoming sequel to Alexandra Aja's THE HILLS HAVE EYES remake and, not long after that, that Michael Bailey Smith, who played Pluto in the remake, would return not as Pluto but as the mutant leader. Now, thanks to a scooper who wishes to remain anonymous, we have for you the official synopsis and character breakdown. Also note that the info below 1) confirms that Martin Weisz, a director who is known primarily for hundreds of music videos and commercials but is also responsible for an interesting-sounding horror feature called ROHTENBURG (no US release announced), will helm the sequel and not Michael J. Bassett (DEATHWATCH), as was rumored, and 2) it appears as though Hades, the mutant leader according to the breakdown, was yet to be cast as of a couple of days ago, so it's unclear if Smith is still attached to star in the movie. It's worth taking a look at mutant descriptions below as some of them are pretty cool (Hades has the face of a mandrill? One only needs to take a look at the picture above to see that is indeed "truly terrifying") but beware of spoilers.

Producers: Wes Craven, Peter Locke, Marianne Maddalena Director: Martin Weisz Casting: Mark Bennett Shoots: Sep. 4, 2006 for 7 weeks Location: Morocco

SYNOPSIS: A team of National Guard cadets stops over at a desert outpost to deliver equipment to some military scientists. They arrive at the research camp to find it mysteriously deserted.
