Director Gareth Edwards' Monsters was one of the best slow-burn indie thrillers in recent years, so it was no surprise when Edwards was given Legendary Pictures' Godzilla reboot, or when a Monsters sequel was announced. Edwards wouldn't direct it, but executive produce. The new directors were to be Brent Bonacorso and Jesse Atlas. That appears to have changed however. More after the jump.
Our friends at Shock Till You Drop have just discovered via Screen Daily that a new director is being brought on to helm the Monsters sequel, currently titled Monsters: Dark Continent. Tom Green (the man behind Misfits) is now directing, and Jay Basu -- who wrote Fast Girls and The Dinosaur Project -- has written the script. No news yet on when filming starts, but we'll keep you posted.
