Dead Snow 2 shoots in 2014

Tommy Wirkola’s horror/comedy Dead Snow is one of my favourite genre movies of the last five or so years. And now that the director has finally put Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters to bed, he's ready to tackle a follow up to his cult fave.

For those who haven't seen Dead Snow, it features a group of friends enjoying a snowy vacation until a bunch of undead Nazis show up. As for the sequel, Wirkola had this to say to the crew from Shock Till You Drop:

"I really want to do a sequel to Dead Snow and we have a script for it," Wirkola said.  "I truly love it and I think it's better than the first film, but it's going to take a lot more money to pull off.  So, we're going to go [into production] next winter, not this winter.  The first Dead Snow was split in two.  The first half is a classical horror movie, the second half goes nuts.  With Dead Snow 2, it starts right where the first film left off and is full throttle from beginning to end.  Basically, the Nazi zombies decide to invade Northern Norway again, it's just crazy."

All I can say is this is one to watch for. And if you haven't seen Dead Snow, rectify that shit right now. NOW!
