Monsters Sequel Without Edwards

Gareth Edwards, the director of the recent acclaimed ultra-low budget “Monsters”, says Vertigo owns the rights to the film and are keen to move forward with another related project very soon – one he may not be a part of.

“I’m not sure how involved I can be right now, and I don’t think my next film really should be a sequel just yet. I’d like to do something else first, but I would definitely be open to returning at some point” he tells Dread Central.

He adds “I do think whoever Vertigo ends up hiring will do a great job because they really know what they’re doing there. For me, if they hire someone to direct another Monsters movie, the last thing they need is for me to be hanging around, telling people how the movie should be. Whoever comes in should definitely be given free rein to put their own spin on this world, and I know they’ll get the right person.”
