A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night star Sheila Vand wants a prequel

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

I think the black-and-white feminist Iranian vampire film A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is a masterpiece, as it is a horror film that is all at once stylish, engrossing, and emotional. That's all thanks to the talented director Ana Lily Amirpour and the enigmatic star Sheila Vand. Here's the official synopsis:

In the Iranian ghost-town Bad City, a place that reeks of death and loneliness, the townspeople are unaware they are being stalked by a lonesome vampire.

However, during a interview about her role in Dave Franco's upcoming thriller THE RENTAL for Comicbook.com, Vand said she wanted to continue the story of The Girl, if Amirpour wanted to continue as well, stating:

It’s something that I have always fantasized about and [the film] feels like it wants it. It was such a phenomenon, the reception of that film. You would never think when you’re making a black-and-white vampire Western, all in Farsi, that it’s going to catch on the way that it did, and that was such a beautiful thing. So I feel like it calls for it.

Ana Lily even has written out an outline of what comes before the film. I don’t know how much she’s written things that happened after the film, but certainly in us creating the backstory for the Girl, there was tons of material in what comes before it. I think it’s great stuff, but I can only push so much as an actor. If a filmmaker wants to be doing their own thing for whatever reason, I’m not going to twist their arm,” the actress admitted. “But, I brought it up, if your followers and listeners want to fight for it … but I’m kind of like, ‘We got to make this decision soon because I ain’t getting any younger and vampires don’t age.'

You can next see Vand in the current SNOWPIERCER series right now, as well as the upcoming THE RENTAL July 24th.

Meanwhile, A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT director Ana Lily Amirpour is on post-production for the upcoming MONA LISA AND THE BLOOD MOON, as well as pre-production on a CLIFFHANGER remake.

So what do you guys think? Fans of the original vampire film? If so, would you be down for a sequel? Either way, sound off below!
