While I’m not exactly looking forward to The Descent 2 (I refuse to use their weird lettering) without Neil Marshall on board, when he discussed the sequel at Fear Fest he seemed pretty confident that editor-turned-director Jon Harris would do a good job with it. So where does that leave us for The Descent 3?
B-D got word via a Descent 2 casting call that there are plans in place for a third trip to the caves. The casting agency is looking for a Latina woman to play Deputy Ellen Ross, and whoever gets the role will be signing a two-picture deal.
I have no problem with more visits to the underground, but man is it going to be tough for anyone to match what Marshall did in his 2004 original, let alone try to top it. As long as they stick to being genuinely scary and claustrophobic, and hopefully don’t do an origin movie, I’ll follow it down.
