Steve Niles hints certainly wouldn’t mind turning the movie adaptations of his horror comics into a full blown franchise…
In an interview talking about Dark Days, the currently in production sequel to 30 Days of Night, comic creator Steve Niles discussed the possibility of turning the films into an ongoing franchise:
"How many sequels are currently planned? Is “Return to Barrow” in conceptual stages?" asks Katz.
"Right now we’re just trying to get this one in the can," Niles tels Bloody Disgusting exclusively adding that they plan on bringing back some of the cast. "If that goes well, we’re set up to move forward. We got a great young cast that we can bring along if this works out well, and we’ll be ready to keep going with the story. Plus, the comics are done. God, what do we have, like seven different graphic novels now if it actually took off?"
Rhys Coiro, Mia Kirshner, Harold Perrineau, Kiele Sanchez, Diora Baird, Rhys Coiro, Monique Ganderton, Marco Sorian and even Katherine Isabelle all star in the film; but Stella was recast. Niles explains briefly why Melissa George couldn’t return oto fill her shoes.
"Schedule. The enemy of all casting. She’s got a million gazillion things going on right now, so we couldn’t fit it."
