More 30 Days of Night Sequel News

Vampires run amok...again!

It was only reported yesterday that a sequel to the 2007 Josh Hartnett vampire movie 30 Days of Night will begin shooting in Vancouver, Canada, in October, with at least one cast member change. Now, it's been reported that the sequel has a title--30 Days of Night: Dark Days--and that the man at the helm will be Ben Ketai, directing from a script that he wrote with the creator of the IDW Publishing comic book series, Steve Niles.

The first movie was adapted from the 3-issue 30 Days of Night comic book series and told the story of a small Alaskan town caught in the bloody clutches of a nest of vampires who are able to feed around the clock thanks to the lack of sunlight for 30 days. While the movie sequel bears the name of the original comic book sequel, Dark Days, it has not been revealed how closely the movie will follow that series' plot. However, Bloody Disgusting hsa reported that the character of Stella Oleson--played by Melissa George in the first movie, but being recast in the sequel--will be featured prominently in 30 Days of Night: Dark Days as she quests for revenge against Lilith, the vampire responsible for claiming her husband Eben (Josh Hartnett).

Ketai is no stranger to the 30 Days lore, having written the 30 Days of Night: Blood Trails and 30 Days of Night: Dust to Dust, but this will mark his debut as a director of a big-budget feature film.
