Stake Land: Vampire-apocalypse film spawns secret sequel
It was announced Tuesday that shooting has wrapped on The Stakelander, the up-until-now hush-hush sequel to 2010’s vampire-apocalypse film, Stake Land. The film finds Stake Land stars Nick Damici and Connor Paolo reprising their roles as Mister and Martin. The Stakelander is set several years after the events of the first film and is directed by Dan Berk and Robert Olsen, who made last year’s thriller, Body. The sequel is based on a screenplay by Damici, who cowrote Stake Land with that film’s director, Jim Mickle.
The Stakelander tracks Paolo’s Martin as he finds himself alone in the badlands of America after his home is destroyed with only a distant memory of his vampire-hunting mentor, Mister, to guide him. Roaming the wilderness of a steadily decaying country, Martin goes in search of the one man who can help him get revenge.
In a statement, Greg Newman of Dark Sky Films, which is producing the movie with Glass Eye Pix, said “Jim Mickle’s Stake Land has long been an audience favorite. The film was embraced by fans across the world and we are thrilled to see Nick Damici reprise his role of Mister, the master vamp-hunter.”
The Stakelander costars Laura Abramsen, AC Peterson, Bonnie Dennison,Kristina Hughes, and Steven Williams. The film is co-produced by Mark Montague of Berserker Entertainment and the Syfy Channel, where The Stakelander will premiere as a Syfy Original.
