Despite its slim runtime (93 minutes) and bare bones cast (it essentially starred just two people, including rising star Scoot McNairy), Gareth Edwards’ remarkable 2010 indie, Monsters, didn’t balk at crafting a mythology that’s primed for expansion (and, in Hollywood-speak, primed for sequels). And though Edwards will not be returning for the film’s sequel, Monsters: The Dark Continent, his structure and ideas appear to be quite present in the new film. At least, if the project’s first synopsis is to be believed. ShockTillYouDrop (via ComingSoon) has reportedly gotten a hold of the official synopsis for Monsters: The Dark Continent, and it tells us in no uncertain terms that the film will see a return to the “Infected Zone.” The first film introduced us to the area – nearly one half of Mexico bordering the United States – as our protagonists journeyed through it, encountering terrifying creatures who apparently came to Earth six years prior, thanks to a NASA probe that went awry. The film ended, however, with (spoiler alert!) both our heroes and the electricity-hungry creatures reaching American soil. So, if our “monsters” have broken free of their zone (and, indeed, they have), why head right back into the place it all began?
