Monsters sequel gets writer and director

June 19th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Monsters was a sci-fi sleeper hit and it looks like a sequel is on its way…

Tom Green who directed several episode of the cult UK superhero series Misfits is set to helm the  follow-up to Gareth Edwards’ sci-fi hit for Vertigo Films.
The original movie told the story of a young couple trying to escape a quarantined Central America which has be taken over by alien plant life.
Rumours a while back was that the sequel would focus on a teacher who goes into the quarantined zone to find his long lost brother. The sequel was originally set to be directed by Brent Bonacorso and Jesse Atlas so it’s not known of the movie will still follow the same story or will be re-imagined now that Fast Girls co-writer Jay Basu has worked on the script.
There is no current release date for the currently named Monsters: Dark Continent.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
