30 Days of Night Dark Days Director Named?

30 Days of Night Dark Days Director Named?Some news about the proposed sequel to 30 Days of Night surfaced today regarding the person who will be helming the film and whether or not star Melissa George will be back. Curious? You know you are.

Bloody Disgusting got the early word that Ben Ketai has been tapped to direct 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, a story from both Steve Niles and Ketai. Shooting is already slated to begin this October in Vancouver, Canada.

Dark Days will tell the story of Stella Olemaun (George's character from the first film who is being recast as Melissa will NOT be returning) as she heads to Los Angeles after surviving the vampire attack in Barrow, Alaska. She intentionally attracts the attention of the local vampire population in order to avenge the death of her husband, Eben, during the Barrow incident.

That's it for now. More as it comes!

No Melissa George? My interest just dropped a fair bit.

I read 30 Days of Night and stopped as my only foray into the comic. I don't know anything about the story but if it contains the same badass vampires as the original did then bring it on by all means.

Yeah. New director, recast lead. Both good signs. (Sarcasm, for the internet sarcasm impaired)
