'Monsters: Dark Continent' is the follow-up to the successful directorial feature debut of new 'Godzilla' reboot filmmaker Gareth Edwards. The sequel to 2010's 'Monsters' has begun shooting in Jordan this time with fellow Brit director Tom Green ('Misfits') behind the camera. The project has gained a trio of cast members that include British performers Johnny Harris -below ('Snow White and the Huntsman', 'Black Death') and Joe Dempsie ('Game of Thrones') along with Irish star Sam Keeley. The follow-up takes place a number of years after the original where the 'Infected Zones' have spread and "Humans have been knocked off the top of the food chain". It would of course be nice to see this sequel follow suit of its predecessor and utilise a guerilla style of filmmaking adapted by director Edwards for his 2010 original.
"Seven years on from the events of Monsters, and the ‘Infected Zones’ have spread worldwide. Humans have been knocked off the top of the food chain, with disparate communities struggling for survival. American soldiers are being sent abroad to protect US interests from the Monsters, but the war is far from being won.
Noah, a haunted soldier with several tours under his belt, is sent on a mission: an American soldier has gone rogue deep in the Infected Zone, and Noah must reach him and take him out. But when Noah's unit and transport are destroyed, he finds himself with only a young and inexperienced cadet for company - the brother of the man Noah has been sent to kill.
The two soldiers must go on a life-altering journey through the dark heart of monster territory, accompanied by a young local woman to guide them. By the time the three of them reach their goal, they will have been forced to confront the fear that the true monsters on the planet may not be alien after all."
