A Third Descent Planned?

Third Descent movie planned?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.

I have to agree with JB, Marshall's film will be a standalone for me.

"At some point, Neil Marshall will say that he "always envisioned The Descent as a trilogy". :D"


Oh man I bet he will.

Let me make a prediction:

At some point, Neil Marshall will say that he "always envisioned The Descent as a trilogy". :D

The De3cent... It can't avoid being an origin movie of some sort!

I agree with you JB, The Descent (for me) was pretty much a stand-alone movie. I cannot see what this sequel is going to add, or how things might be developed. Saying that I also thought the same about Saw, and look where we are with that franchsise... :-/

I agree with you regarding an origin movie, what a friggin mistake that would be. But, now that you said it, look for them to do an "old west" cave dweller for the 4th one.

Then we move on to Cave Dweller vs. Feast Creatures for part 5.

So they're shooting parts 2 & 3 back to back, like Back to the Future II & III?
