The long-gestating sequel to Neil Marshall’s THE DESCENT seems to finally be gearing up for production with the recent announcement of several cast members! An article on The Hollywood Reporter states, "’Celador Films is reuniting with French-owned and U.K.-based Pathe on a sequel to low-budget box office hit "THE DESCENT.’" Jon Harris, the editor of the first DESCENT makes his directorial debut with THE DESCENT 2 from a script by James Watkins. (MY LITTLE EYE) The article continues with confirmation of plans to shoot the sequel on location in Scotland and at London’s Ealing Studios over the course of 8 weeks. "The stars of the original film, Shauna MacDonald and Natalie Mendoza, will reprise their roles, alongside Gavan O’Herlihy, Joshua Dallas, Anna Skellern, Douglas Hodge and Krysten Cummings. The script sees the survivor forced back into the system of caves she battled her way out of in the first film, in a bid to locate the rest of her group."

    In the uncut version I thought she was dreaming that she escaped only to wake up still in the cave and how can you save yor friends or go get them if they have been half eaten? I think this is going to ruin the Grimness of the film and be lame. The only thing I ever wondered about this film was what in the hell were those creature and how did they become that?
