Because it just ain't a comic book movie these days if there's no sequel speculation to go along with it, rumors are now making the rounds about a possible follow-up to "30 Days of Night" -- 2007's horror/thriller about a sleepy Alaska town that succubs to a month of darkness, therefore becoming a vampire vacation destination.
While there has been two made-for-TV follow-ups to the film ("Blood Trails" and "Dust to Dust"), according to BloodyDisgusting.com, reports that a follow-up feature film to the surprise hit is in the works, with original comic writer Steve Niles listed as a possible screenwriter. The blog then goes onto to describe what the rumored "30 Days of Night" sequel would entail, saying "Stella seeks revenge on the blood-thirsty vampires that destroyed her sleepy Alaskan town." While the BloodyDisgusting post cites no official confirmation from the studio or Niles, the reaction from commenters makes it clear that fans would love to see a "Part 2" to the film.
An overnight sensation when the comic mini-series first debuted at 2002's San Diego Comic Con, "30 Days of Night" was almost immediately picked up by Sam Raimi for development, catapulting Niles into stardom. As mentioned, the story follows Barrow, Alaska Sheriff Eben Olemaun and his wife, Stella, as they try and combat an onslaught of vampires who invade their small town as it enters its annual month of darkness given it geographical location on the globe. The film grossed $70 million worldwide and starred Josh Hartnett and Melissa George as Eben and Stella, respectively.
