The De2cent Director announced
When we first heard about the sequel to Descent, Descent 2 or as they were calling it De2cent, Neil Marshall wasn't involved and it sounded awful. Then he revealed he was a producer and pushing to get a good script, now we hear that his Descent Editor Jon Harris will be directing the sequel it sounds rather interesting.
Now with the news from HorrorMovies.ca that the Editor from The Descent (Filmstalker review) is to direct, I think we're looking at the next best thing to Marshall himself writing and directing the sequel.
Here's hoping that he has a lot more involvement in the scripting and that Jon Harris has a similar or better style and vision for the film. So far I think this is sounding really promising. Interestingly Harris also edited Stardust (Filmstalker review), Layer Cake, Ripley's Game and Snatch, so he's a damn fine editor, let's see how he is directing.
