Upcoming horror: Cloverfield 2, Silent Hill 2, Rec 2

Wet dream come true, right? These are just industry rumours, so don’t quote me on them, or do if you like idgaf. Cloverfield 2 has been “in talks,” as Paramount is trying to work out a deal with original director Matt Reeves, along with Abrams and writer Drew Goddard since the end of Cloverfield’s production, but given that JJ has nothing going for him now Lost ended, a little birdy has told me that a late 2010 production is on the cards.

The obvious sequel to the successful game-to-film adaptation is in the works, with Davis Films aiming to shoot the movie in 2010 after Resident Evil 4, which it’s now prepping. Sadly, given that Resident Evil has always been an absolute crap franchise, even for zombie-related material, we’ll probably see 50,000 lurkers coming out of a shoe box big enough to fit 0.17 of them. It’s said that if Christophe Gans doesn’t return as director that they’ll possible seek another foreign director although he’s expressed interest in staying with the franchise, but if he is unable to, he’ll remain close to production and feels that the visual style and tone of the first film should be kept in tact. Roger Avary (Silent Hill, Beowulf) will return and has signed on the dotted line.

Rec 2 is out and finished, it won’t be in cinema’s in Australia until the end of the world (see: 2012?) but is available at Pirate Bay as a torrent download with hard coded English subs, it follows the storyline of Rec, but sadly because they’ve again opted not to use English the subtitles really do detract from something visceral like a body-horror as the Rec franchise has come to be seen. This means that there’ll be a Quarantine 2 (Quarantine was the English language variant, American shot version of Rec) which means more tardy American B-grade actors aplenty and a quality overall dimished yet still superior to the non-English version due to no distracting subs and better production elements bad actors aside.
