First Pontypool Sequel News





If you haven't seen or heard about the claustrophobic zombie thriller Pontypool (review), then you really need to start paying attention. The film kicks a lot of ass, and finally news on the second movie in this proposed trilogy has come to light.

Just before a midnight screening in Boston last night, the film's producers sat down for a quick Q&A in which it was divulged that they had just gotten the script for the sequel. Turns out it will be the complete opposite of the first film in that it will take place mainly outside and be more action-oriented.

More on this as it breaks. In the interim salivate over the trailer below.

For Seattle horror fans, I hope to be breaking some screening news for PONTYPOOL soon as well.

Good to know that they're moving forward on the sequel(s). And I'm glad they're going in a different direction. I love the idea that Bruce McDonald floated at the Festival of Fear and at TIFF, which is to do a sequel that's an actual adaptation of the book (whereas the movie basically takes the plot as a jumping off point and creates its own thing). I love the movie, but I would also love something that is very faithful to the book.
