Kiele Sanchez Will Replace Melissa George In 30 Days Of Night: Dark Days

Bloody Disgusting has the exclusive news on the horror sequel's casting switch. There is also the official plot synopsis.

Principal photography has commenced in Vancouver, Canada for 30 Days Of Night: Dark Days. The movie is being directed by Ben Ketai(replacing David Slade). The cast includes Kiele Sanchez (A Perfect Getaway, Lost), Diora Baird (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, Wedding Crashers), Rhys Coiro (Entourage, 24 the upcoming Straw Dogs), Mia Kirshner (The L Word, The Black Dahlia), and Harold Perrineau (Oz, Lost, The Matrix Revolutions). Check out the official synopsis below.

"It’s been a year since the Alaskan town of Barrow’s population was decimated by vampires during its annual month long sunset. Riddled with grief over the death of her husband, bound by nightmares and void of all emotions beyond hate and sorrow, Stella (Sanchez replacing George)) has spent the past months traveling the world, trying to convince others that vampires exist. Met with skepticism and laughter, Stella is ready to throw in the towel when a group of lost souls (Coiro, Baird and Perrineau) offers an incredible opportunity: the chance to exact revenge upon Lilith (Kirshner), the vampire queen responsible for the assault on her sleepy Alaskan town. With nothing remaining to live for, and nothing left to fear, Stella joins their mission and ventures into the uncharted underbelly of Los Angeles where she pushes herself to the most extreme limits to stop the evil from striking again."

Well, I'm very disappointed with this news. George is a great actress and I really enjoyed the first movie. I have only seen Sanchez in "Lost," in which she was basically eye candy before being killed off! Hopefully, the switch in director and leading lady will still produce a good movie.
