Bekmambetov Wanted no Dusk?

Watch Series Director Timur Bekmambetov!Timur Bekmambetov, the talented fellow who brought us the Russian awesomeness known as Night Watch and Day Watch, may not be returning to round out the series.

STYD asked the director, who just finished up helming the action-thriller Wanted, what his plans were in regards to Dusk Watch (AKA Twilight Watch). His response was anything but positive: “I never read a script for ‘Dusk Watch’ and we’ll see what will happen. I’m kind of done with these kinds of movies. Not action movies, but conspiracy theory/action/tragedies.

I’ve got a feeling that Bekmambetov may change his tune if Wanted smashes the box office on June 27th. Sure, a sequel to that film may be the first to come, but to keep his name in the lights we may just see the second sequel follow soon after that.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.

    I fell asleep halfway through Night Watch, in the theater no less. Speaking as an insomniac I think he should finish off the series as a public service.

    Maybe Timur thinks Day Watch finshed things up well?

      Hmmm, good point. I didn’t realize that there was no third book. I just assumed there was.

    How do you do two movies in a trilogy, and not do the finish?
