30 Days of Night Sequel Talks Have Already Begun

post-foster.jpgDirector David Slade’s vampire thriller, based on the groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith has not even hit theaters yet and we are already talking seriously about a sequel. Luckily, there are actually 3 graphic novels in the “Night” series, leaving plenty of source material for more movies down the line.

30 Days screenwriter Brian Nelson told Reelz Channel this week that not only is a sequel in the work, but we may be seeing more of Ben Foster as The Stranger. To those of you wondering why that is important, consider this: Foster’s character, a spooky dude who leads the vampires to Barrow, ends up being just as frightening and twice as creepy as any of his bloodsucking friends. For those that have seen the movie, more of Ben Foster would have been a welcomed addition to the film’s 113 minute run time. On Foster, Nelson commented: “We love Ben and we love The Stranger. I’ll just tantalizingly say it is possible you might see more of The Stranger in the future.”

That’s great because we (read: the audience) loved Ben as well and we can’t get enough of The Stranger. I say bring him and everyone else back, especially that Melissa George — never has any actress looked hotter bundled up for sub-zero weather.

30 Days of Night hits theaters this Friday, October 19.
