Screen Gems and Third Street Pictures announced today that Robert Hall, President of Almost Human Inc., has taken the reins for creating the infected in Quarantine 2, the follow-up to the 2008 hit Quarantine. This marks Hall’s return to the Quarantine franchise as he created the special makeup effects in the first film as well (you can check out his work on the special features of the Quarantine DVD and Blu-ray in the "Dressing the Infected" featurette).
The American version of [REC] known here in the States as Quarantine was pretty much a straight retelling of the Spanish film with some minor changes made to the story and a few key scenes. The first news of Sony's Quarantine 2 has just broken, and it appears to be going in a completely different direction than [REC] 2. YAY variety!
It's a typically slow news weekend, but one story has trickled out that is worth mentioning: "Official" development of Quarantine 2 has begun under the auspices of Sony Screen Gems.
