I liked 30 Days of Night. I really did, and was a little confused at some of the backlash against a stylish vampire film with more quality than the majority of American horror movies these days. That's why I was initially excited by the rumors of a sequel from Ghost House Pictures, then saddened by the rumor that it would be released straight to DVD.
Well now it seems that 30 Days of Night writer Steve Niles is denying the latter report. In speaking with ShockTillYouDrop last week, he claimed it was completely untrue, and that he has no idea where rumors of a DTV release would be c0ming from. Furthermore, he stated that he and director David Slade would be involved once again, should the presumably theatrically released sequel come to fruition.
30 Days of Night topped the box office in its opening weekend, which would point to the feasability of a sequel. But it also paradoxically earned only $39 million, which might put a theatrical sequel on shaky ground. Clearly, someone doesn't have their facts straight here.
