One of the benefits of making an indie film is that you can repeat the process and keep the ball rolling if you want. There’s freedom there. Most indie flicks don’t exactly lend themselves to sequels, though, because they hardly ever involve aliens blowing Los Angeles to Hell and back.

I just spoke with Colin and Greg Strause, the co-directors of Skyline, and they mentioned another thing you’re not beholden to: the box office. They’re looking for a strong return, but even if it doesn’t garner huge numbers, the pair have already got 45 pages of a treatment for the next installment on paper.

It’s not a guaranteed personal green light, but the Brothers point out that they only need to make “a tenth” of what normal event movies make in order to be successful financially, so there’s a good chance that they’ll start on page 46 after the film hits theaters the weekend of November 12th.
