In 2008 a little movie called The Outpost was released direct-to-video and ended up being one of the best flicks to come out that year. Don’t remember it? Haven’t seen it? Do yourself a favor and start playing catch-up immediately.
After talking about it for a couple of years, we’ve just received word that its sequel, Outpost: Black Sun, has officially begun production. Read on for the details, including the first bit of casting news.
From the Press Release:
Content and Black Camel are pleased to announce that principal photography has begun on Outpost: Black Sun, the sequel to the 2008 Outpost. Content co-developed the script with Black Camel Pictures, and it is produced in association with Matador Pictures with development and production investment from Creative Scotland.
Outpost: Black Sun sees the reunion of the original Outpost creative team. Steve Barker again directs from the script he co-wrote with screenwriter Rae Brunton.
The cast includes Richard Coyle (W.E, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, A Good Year, The Libertine) and Catherine Steadman (“The Tudors”) with Julian Wadham (Outpost, The English Patient) returning as Hunt and Johnny Meres as The Breather.
The year is 1945, the closing stages of WW2, and a German scientist by the name of Klausener is working on frightening new technology with the power to create an immortal Nazi army. Flash-forward to the present day, and a NATO task force is hurriedly deployed to Eastern Europe, where a sinister enemy appears to be mercilessly killing everything in its path. But this is no ordinary foe. Only Helena (Steadman), a gutsy investigator on the trail of notorious war-criminal Klausener, accepts the reality of what they are facing, a battalion of Nazi Storm-Troopers, a veritable zombie army on the march. With the help of Wallace (Coyle), a man who’s been chasing Nazi secrets for years, the two team up with a Special Forces Unit to venture deep behind enemy lines. Their mission: to fight their way back to the source of this evil army and prevent the seemingly inevitable rise of the 4th Reich.
