The Descent (review), while a great fucking movie, never really struck me as the kind that needed a sequel. The original ending summed everything up nicely. That isn’t the case as you can tell since there is indeed a follow-up with Neil Marshall being replaced by Jon Harris in the director’s chair. Yes, Sarah (Shauna MacDonald) will be venturing back into the caves to confront the things that claimed her friends, and there may be a surprise return of Sarah’s best friend/foe Juno!
It was almost a no-brainer that MacDonald would return as the lead, but it was unexpected to see Natalie Mendoza turn up. According to Bloody Disgusting she has signed on, but now that opens things up as to what exactly Mendoza will be doing in the pic. Flashbacks? Did she fight her way out of the cave? Or is this all a set-up for the whole “twin sister” thing!
