Director Andre Szots’ sequel to William Girdler’s Grizzly was set to sport a killer cast including George Clooney, Charlie Sheen, and Laura Dern. But they never finished the movie. Too bad.
But today we hear producer Suzanne Csikos Nagy was able to get a new digital transfer of the old footage and shoot new footage to finally complete the film. In fact, a screening of the flick was held in Los Angeles earlier this week. Hopefully, we hear more soon. Check out some stills below!
George Clooney, Charlie Sheen, Laura Dern’s co-stars include Louise Fletcher, John Rhys-Davies, Dick Anthony Williams, Jack Starrett, Charles Cyphers, and Deborah Foreman.
Nagy wrote on the movie’s website: “We didn’t want to make a 21st-century movie when we looked at the footage. We wanted to keep it as original as possible to have an authentic American movie quality from the ’80s. Something that was missed or lost and found later on to attract enthusiastic cult lovers. With the casting power and the existing entertainment value with a big bear, we believe the movie will resonate with today’s audience.“
Grizzly II: Revenge follows this synopsis: All hell breaks loose when a 15-ft grizzly bear, reacting to the slaughter of her cub by poachers, seeks revenge and kills anyone that gets in her way. In the 3 days before the major concert taking place in Yellowstone National Park, the gigantic grizzly has brutally attacked campers Ron (George Clooney), Tina (Laura Dern) and Lance (Charlie Sheen), poachers and a park ranger. The terror doesn’t end there as the giant grizzly bear finds its way to the concert grounds to go on a killing spree.
