"The Descent" Gets Sequeled

In a move that should surprise no one, indie horror flick The Descent is getting a sequel, tentatively titled The Descent 2. Horror is a genre that lives and dies by its franchises and sequels of sequels, so it makes complete sense that this British sleeper hit about a group of spelunking female friends that find themselves hunted in the very caves they explore would get the call for a follow up.
The film will be shot over a period of eight weeks in Scotland and England. The original film's leading ladies, Shauna MacDonald and Natalie Mendoza will reprise their roles are the terrorized victims. The script sends the sole survivor back into the dark, bloody recesses of the caves from which she escaped to try and locate her doomed and dead friends. Director Neil Marshall will not be directing this time out, but he will fill the producer role.
Bring on the torture porn. It's the quickest way to make a buck at the box office. Moviegoers love to see the blood 'n guts.
