Bloody Disgusting are reporting that Screen Gems have begun the development process for a sequel to ‘Quarantine’. The original movie, a direct remake of Spanish horror thriller ‘[REC]’ in this reviewers opinion was far superior although the American remake did have some good points. And it seems the successful box office takings of 30million plus in the States alone has warranted it a follow-up.
Screen Gems are reportedly ‘looking for a toally original pitch’ for the sequel. Interestingly Filmax are currently in post-production on their own follow-up to the original Spanish flick ‘[REC]’ so it’ll be interesting to see how two extremely similar original movies may go off on alternate tangents for their successors.
‘[REC]’ will arrive (albeit waaaay too late) on DVD stateside this July.
