EXCLUSIVE: Greg Strause talks Skyline 2, says treatment already written

There's already a lot of chatter going around the 'net about SKYLINE 2, which of course is the way things work when an outlet catches one or two quotes and runs with them, context be damned. SKYLINE has not even come out (it does so on NOVEMBER 12th), but with a budget of around $10 million (not counting advertising), it's safe to say that it won't have far to go to become a success - and most successes in Hollywood get sequelized.

Still, better to hear it from the horse's mouth. I got a chance to speak with Greg Strause - one half of the directing team he makes up with his brother Colin - and Liam O'Donnell, the film's co-writer; though we mostly talked about the upcoming sci-fi extravaganza, eventually the subject of SKYLINE 2 came up...

"We had ideas, we want to keep doing it," O'Donnell said.

Strause continued, "Liam and Josh Cordes already have a treatment put together for it, because there's business aspects... the foreign distributors, they want to know you've already got it figured out, it's all mapped out."

O'Donnell: "We did all this heavy lifting to get these characters into a really cool place, and we want to keep telling that story. It's a lot of fun, it's a fun world."

After I kidded them that SKYLINE 2 was now official, Strause said, "There's a headline out there like, 'SKYLINE 2 ready to go unless SKYLINE 1 flops.'"

O'Donnell: "We've got a ten million dollar budget, I mean do the math."

Keep your ears open for the entire interview with Greg and Liam, which will air on Wednesday, November 3rd - only on Arrow in the Head's BLOOD, BULLETS AND BROADS!
