Game of Thrones Star Joins Monsters: Dark Continent; Production Under Way
"Game of Thrones" actor Joe Dempsie has officially escaped life in prison camp for a chance to tango with some giant sized creatures. Read on for more details including the full cast reveal for Monsters: Dark Continent, which is filming now in Jordan.
According to Screen Daily, Welcome to the Punch actor Johnny Harris stars alongside Sam Keeley (What Richard Did) and Dempsie (pictured; “Game of Thrones”) in the anticipated sequel, which is set “some years after” Gareth Edwards’ cult hit original, which won four British Independent Film Awards.
Television director Tom Green (no relation to the funnyman of the same name) will be at the helm of Monsters: Dark Continent while original director Gareth Edwards executive produces along with actor Scoot McNairy. Producers are James Richardson and Allan Niblo for Vertigo and Ben Pugh and Rory Aitken for Between the Eyes.
After several weeks in Jordan production will move back to the U.S. for a final week of shooting in Detroit.
Seven years on from the events of Monsters, and the ‘Infected Zones’ have spread worldwide. Humans have been knocked off the top of the food chain, with disparate communities struggling for survival. American soldiers are being sent abroad to protect US interests from the monsters, but the war is far from being won. Noah, a haunted soldier with several tours under his belt, is sent on a mission: An American soldier has gone rogue deep in the Infected Zone, and Noah must reach him and take him out. But when Noah’s unit and transport are destroyed, he finds himself with only a young and inexperienced cadet for company – the brother of the man Noah has been sent to kill. The two soldiers must go on a life-altering journey through the dark heart of monster territory, accompanied by a young local woman to guide them. By the time the three of them reach their goal, they will have been forced to confront the fear that the true monsters on the planet may not be alien after all.
