Night of the Comet 2 in the works

Night of the Comet fans rejoice...there is a sequel in the works!...

Kelli Maroney, who starred in the sci-fi classic “Night of the Comet” as Sam (“the little girl with the big gun”), will reprise her role in the sequel, NIGHT OF THE COMET II, which she will co-produce with Charlie Mason for his company, Ride the Rail Entertainment, which is clearing the rights.

The original film, long unavailable on DVD or video, was written and directed by Thom Eberhardt, and starred Maroney, Mary Woronov, Robert Beltran, Geoffrey Lewis and Catherine Mary Stewart, some of whom will reprise their original roles.

“I’m thrilled to be able to bring this one back,” said Maronrey, dropping into character as Sam the Cheerleader. “Like, what’s up with it not being out there? I’m so sure it totally has to be….”

In the original “Night of the Comet,” a comet wipes out most of life on Earth, leaving two Valley Girls (Maroney and Stewart) to fight evil flesh-eating zombies who survive the disaster. The zombies are led by mad scientists Lewis and Woronov. The girls hook up with a friendly truck driver (Beltran) and survive, presumably to repopulate the Earth.

The original film was financed by the Film Development Fund and released domestically by Atlantic Releasing Corp, Paramount, and CBS-Fox Video.

I'd settle for just having the original on DVD. Seems like kind of a weird movie to do a sequel to now, especially with the original cast; they're all in their 40's now. I guess the sequel could have them rebuilding civilization or something.

Doesn't sound like a good idea....but it might be entertaining.


Gave up on the DVD. Have the HD broadcast on my DVR.

Well, at least it'll feature the original cast so it hopefully won't be some "sequel in name only" thing. This isn't from the guys doing sequels to Creepshow and Day of the Dead is it?

Ah... good times. Back when I had a crush on Catherine Mary Stewart for both this movie and Last Starfighter.

Find this a bit difficult to believe since they can't even get the rights to get the original one out on DVD, but like previously stated if it get the first out on DVD and starrs some of the original cast, I'm all for it.
Love those end of the world flick anyway, and Night of the Comet is one of my favorites... Check my sig.

I am so there.

I mean, what a shock, with all the other work Kelli Maroney's been getting lately.
