Star Scoot McNairy rode the film to roles in some great-looking projects (Argo, Killing Them Softly) and Edwards became the director of Legendary Pictures’ new take on Godzilla.

Talk of a sequel to Monsters also cropped up as the film was rolling into theaters, but we haven’t heard much about that development in a while. Now there’s a report that the project has a new director, and a new title: Monsters: The Dark Continent. Read More »
