30 Days sequel talk

10.16.2007

30 Days of Night Rumors of a sequel to the David Slade directed horror thriller 30 DAYS OF NIGHT, which is based on the groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith, have been swirling around the internets for a little while now but now one of the film's scribes, Brian Nelson, is weighing in on it, paying special attention to Ben Foster's enigmatic and equally terrifying character "The Stranger". According to Nelson (Warning: Link contains spoilers!), "We love Ben and we love The Stranger. I'll just tantalizingly say it is possible you might see more of The Stranger in the future." So not just a sequel but a sequel in which The Stranger is back? Groovy. By all accounts, the movie is a deliciously terrifying slice of horror pie so a sequel is pretty much assured.

Extra Tidbit: The town where the story is set, Barrow, Alaska, bears very little resemblance to the actual town of Barrow, Alaska. Namely, the real Barrow has no vampires. Or do they??

i'm with you for the most part, Hunglow, but technically Niles did shop 30 as a movie script before getting rejected and making it a graphic novel instead, so....

As far as The Stranger goes, limit his appearances to a prequel-as-a-sequel kind of thing. Otherwise, limit REAL sequels to those of the "Dark Days" and "Return to barrow" type.

Oh how I long for a future where the nerds finally realize a movie is a movie and a book or a comic book is something else. If you're looking for an exact interpretation on film your chances of being satisfied are low. Subterranean low.

just let a movie be a movie. It's not like it has any effect on the continuity of the source material. They exist in seperate worlds.

Then again, I'll be pretty pissed if Watchmen misses the mark...

I have a bad feeling that they have bastardized the comic... And the sequel should be about Dark Days.

SPOILER. And the Sranger gets killed in the comic. Please, don't resurrect him just for the sake of it.END OF SPOILER

If 30 Days of Night is good movie, do Dark Days. Don't do anything "original".

30 Days of Night is indeed about Vampires.

As far as sequels go, why no mentions of "Dark Days"? Wouldn't a film sequel loosely inspired by the comic sequel make sense? Or did they tear the story up enough to make it no longer fit as a sequel...

Hmmm?

Maybe Im missing something or am just dumb BUT why are you comparing this to zombie comics? Isn't 30 Days of Night about Vampires?

30 Days = Overrated...

"Groundbreaking?" Hardly. Templesmith is pretty to look at, but Kirkman's Walking Dead is vastly superior. Kirkman knows how to write zombie comics and make them worthwhile. And oddly enough, Marvel Zombies is well worth checking out too.
