Descent 2 details

Get some clean shorts -- there's more deadly spelunking on the way in a sequel to THE DESCENT.

Writer-director Neil Marshall won't be returning to terrorize us, but he's got the first movie's editor Jon Harris now turning out the lights and presenting more comestibles for the cave-dwelling creeps.

He's not the only one coming back for more claustrophobic horror -- regardless of their fates in the original (depending on your perspective or which version you saw) actresses Shauna MacDonald and Natalie Mendoza will conspicuously be reprising their roles. The new story reportedly revolves around "the survivor forced back into the system of caves she battled her way out of in the first film, in a bid to locate the rest of her group." Interesting enough, although if it follows the standard horror sequel paradigm, a military or law enforcement presence is also likely...

Also starring in the modestly budgeted sequel (which I shall never refer to as THE DE2CENT) are fresh meals Gavan O'Herlihy, Joshua Dallas, Anna Skellern, Douglas Hodge and Krysten Cummings. Marshall is still overseeing the production.
Extra Tidbit: Harris also served as editor on SNATCH and LAYER CAKE.
