[...] Tapert says Dark Days, the 30 Days of Night sequel, is closer than you think. "Ben Ketai is up in Vancouver now getting ready to shoot. I think principal photography is coming along in two weeks. It's a really good script." [...]

[...] Ben Ketai has been tapped to direct 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, a story from both Steve Niles and Ketai. Shooting is already slated to begin this October in Vancouver, Canada. We also learned that Stella Oleson returns as the lead character, but she will be recast (Melissa George toplined the first film). In the sequel, Stella joins a group of vampire hunters in order to get revenge on Lilith - the vamp responsible for the attack on her Alaska town. Ketai wrote the web series "30 Days of Night: Blood Trails" and "30 Days of Night: Dust to Dust."

[15.05.2009] MTV meldet...
Last year, Radical Publishing announced a financing plan to speed many of their comic books to feature films. "30 Days of Night" creator Steve Niles‘ "City of Dust" was on on that list, and as the writer explains, not only are the gears still in motion to produce a screenplay, but Niles’ comics might also produce a spin-off series of novels, too.
"I don’t know if you’re aware of the ‘30 Days of Night’ novels we did for Pocket Books, but we’ve done three novels and had tremendous success with them - so I suggested doing the same thing for Phillip Khrome and ‘City of Dust,’" Niles told MTV News.
The busy writer is currently shepherding several of his original properties into film adaptations, including "Freaks of the Heartland," "Wake the Dead," and a potential "30 Days of Night" sequel.
Co-author of the novelizations of "30 Days," Niles expressed a great deal of trust in Radical president and publisher Barry Levine, who is overseeing "City of Dust" as the search for a screenwriter to adapt his work continues. Of course, it helps that positive experiences in his past have made him less cautious about turning the script duties over to someone else.
"There’s some [original properties] that I definitely feel protective about and others I don’t," said Niles. "A really great case in point was ‘30 Days of Night.’ [Screenwriter] Brian Nelson wound up coming in and doing the final draft based on the comics and my screenplay." [...]

[23.04.2009] Wie MTV meldet, wird es eine Fortsetzung geben...
[...] In a conversation with Niles, the author confirmed to MTV News that rumors of a "30 Days of Night" sequel in the works were not only true, but a screenplay has already been completed for the film. According to Niles, the movie sequel will be based on the sequel to the original "30 Days of Night" comic book, a story titled "Dark Days."
"There will be a sequel," Niles told MTV News. "The script is in. I’ve been working on it with a buddy of mine, Ben Ketai, who directed the last round of the online webisodes."
"The script is based on ‘Dark Days,’" explained Niles.
In "Dark Days," the character of Stella Olemaun heads to Los Angeles after surviving the vampire attack in Barrow, Alaska. She intentionally attracts the attention of the local vampire population in order to avenge the death of her husband, Eben, during the Barrow incident.
Niles said that the original film’s $70 million showing at the box office made the direct-to-DVD route likely for the sequel - but after receiving some words of support from "30 Days of Night" producer (and "Spider-Man 4" director) Sam Raimi, he’s perfectly fine with following that path.
"We didn’t hit that magic $100 million, but I had a long talk with Sam," explained Niles. "He called me and just said, ‘Don’t be too quick to judge this direct-to-DVD market, especially with the sci-fi market.’"
"This way we’d be able to do all the comics," reasoned Niles. "We won’t have the massive competition of the box office, and theoretically, we could move on to ‘Return to Barrow’ and to the other series and short stories." [...]

[08.06.2008] STYD sprach mit Sam Raimi...
[...] On the 30 Days of Night tip, Raimi dismisses any recent news headlines concerning a sequel to last year's vampire frenzy, further confirming what Steve Niles relayed to us last follow-up. [...]

[31.05.2008] STYD meldet...
Today, a report surfaced elsewhere pointing to Ghost House Pictures' plans to develop a direct-to-DVD sequel to 30 Days of Night. "I have no idea where this is coming from," 30 Days creator Steve Niles reveals to Shock with a bit of surprise. "There's not one bit of truth to that." He does own up to wanting to pursue a follow-up to last year's violent vampire epic. But Niles and director David Slade there was always potential, if the film performed well. Should there be a sequel, Niles will undoubtedly have involvement. [...]

[...] What it DOES do (and very well) is re-create the incredible atmosphere of the novel. Templesmith's dynamic artwork gives an incredible sense of hellish natural elements with the quick predatory motions of the vampires and David Slade's direction is perfectly in sync with that world. It's got common threads with the book, but it really is amazing how different it is yet how similar it felt. I like the feel of Hard Candy a lot but here he goes all out making a wicked wicked horror survival flick. [...]

[04.10.2007] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik...
[...] With a better script, this could've been a major horror release - it had the budget, it had the expertise, it had the actors, and it had a terrific hook. But they fucked it up. Badly. [...]

[23.06.2007] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik zu einer Testvorführung...
[...] I can tell you that the movie is great, bordering on excellent. The movie is suspenseful, fairly dramatic, horrific and very, very gory. [...]
The vampires literally chatter, screech and don't speak, though Marlowe talks vampire every once in awhile. Because of the constant chattering and screeching, I couldn't help but relate it to the constant moaning and screaming of modern-day zombies. It's not too annoying, though and stays in context with the movie.
The only gripe is there is no ounce of levity or humor in this movie. Think John Carpenter's The Thing. It escalates and escalates and escalates. No pithy one-liners but at the same time, no release of tension. I could hear various audience members whispering funny things to relieve the tension.
A good and thorough story that fans of thrillers may like but definitely a movie where gore-hounds may relish, especially the vampire-little girl scene. [...]

[...] According to the latest issue of Film Music Weekly, the vampire invasion of the small Alaskan town of Barrow in 30 Days of Night has found its composer. Brian Reitzell is on board to music supervise, produce and score the film - an adaptation of the popular IDW comic book created by Steve Niles starring Josh Hartnett (Sin City) and Melissa George (Turistas). David Slade (Hard Candy) is directing from a script by Brian Nelson for Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures.
Reitzell cut his teeth in Hollywood as a music supervisor on Sofia Coppola's The Virgin Suicides; later he'd go on to pull similar duties for her on Marie Antoinette and CQ, a picture Coppola's brother, Roman, directed in 2001. Reitzell's coring credits include Friday Night Lights [...]

[...] "I'm working right now [in New Zealand]. I've got a week and a half off to come do press. I go back on Friday," he said about the David Slade-directed film.
"It's less of a horror movie. You saw 'Alien,' right?" Hartnett asked. "It's like that. It's kind of a supernatural, but kind of a western, you know, in that genre. It's all about being on the edge. The outskirts of society. Having to create your own society with an outside element creating massive fear and panic. Most of the film you don't even know they're vampires." [...]

Josh Hartnett, who once starred in "40 Days and 40 Nights," is now in final negotiations to topline "30 Days of Night" for Columbia Pictures. The film is based on the comic book "30 Days of Night," which was written by Steve Niles, illustrated by Ben Templesmith and published by IDW. David Slade is directing. Penned by Stuart Beattie and Brian Nelson, the story is set in Barrow, Alaska, the northernmost town in the U.S., where the sun does not appear for more than 30 days during the dead of winter. An evil force emerges from the darkness, striking terror in the town. The local sheriffs -- a husband (Hartnett)-and-wife team -- are forced to choose between saving themselves and helping the town survive until daylight returns. The studio is looking for a female lead.

[...] Sam Raimi will be producing the oft-discussed vampire flick 30 DAYS OF NIGHT, and New Zealand will be doubling for Alaska. The budget is reportedly sitting pretty at $70million, meaning those special effects had better look damned pretty! Or, the effects could look dodgy and you could use the money to hire Chris Tucker instead! The film is set in a small Alaskan town where it is completely dark for one month of the year, making it a prime spot for vampires. (Vampires do actually appear in the film, I'm not editorialising.) The film has begun its casting calls, and is set for release in October 2007. [...]

Most of America has yet to see British director David Slade's first feature film, the psychological thriller Hard Candy, but it must have impressed producer Sam Raimi of Ghost House Pictures, because he hired the director to turn the Steve Niles-Ben Templesmith horror comic series 30 Days of Night into a feature film. spoke to Slade about his vision for the film, which starts shooting in the summer in Alaska and New Zealand. "Brian Nelson's writing the script, so that means we have a very original take on the genre," he said. "Indeed, I don't believe there's much of the genre left in what we've written, but it's very faithful both to Steve Niles' writing, and the town and the esthetic--we hope at this point, because we're not shooting until the summer--will be very close to Ben Templesmith's artwork. But we're going to maintain the level of realism." [...]

David Slade has signed on to direct the horror film "30 Days of Night" for Columbia Pictures. The film is the latest production from Ghost House Pictures, the production company launched by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert. Raimi and Tapert are producing, while Grant Curtis is overseeing the production for Ghost House. Mike Richardson, Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane are executive producing. Columbia will handle North American distribution of the film as well as in a few international territories, while Mandate Pictures will handle the remaining international rights.

[14.02.2005] Bei AICN gibt es einen Bericht von der Dallas Comic Con...
[...] Niles said that Columbia has put a rush on the movies version of 30 Days of Night. Based on the success of The Grudge and Boogeyman, the rush was just put out this week and it is now second in line in production for them behind, he believes, is Scarecrow. [...]

[15.10.2004] SF Wire meldet...
Rob Tapert, who is producing the film adaptation of Steve Niles' supernatural graphic novel 30 Days of Night, told SCI FI Wire that the author has read the script and was pleased with its faithfulness to the original story. "Steve has read [screenwriter Stuart Beattie's] draft that we just turned in to the studio and thought it was the absolute best representation of the graphic novel," Tapert said in an interview. "So he was incredibly pleased. And right now we're just waiting for the studio to get back to us as to how they want to proceed there."
30 Days of Night is a vampire story set in the Arctic Circle, where it remains dark for a month each winter. Tapert is shepherding the project under the banner of Ghost House Pictures, the production company he formed with friend and partner Sam Raimi (Spider-Man). Though the company was formed with the idea of making quality low-budget horror films, Tapert said the exotic setting of 30 Days of Night will likely drive up the cost of production. "Because it was such an expensive process, such an expensive movie to make, all set in the snow, we - Ghost House and our partners at Senator Entertainment - partnered right away with Sony on it, because it was going to be a $50 or $60 or $70 million movie," Tapert said. "We know that they're very excited with having read it. I think we're going to meet in the coming week or so."

[06.05.2004] Comics Continuum meldet...
Steve Niles, creator of 30 Days of Night, told The Continuum that Stuart Beattie, a writer of Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, has been brought aboard to do a rewrite on his screenplay for a film.
30 Days of Night is set up at Sony.
"I'm really happy," Niles said about Beattie's involvement, "because this means they're taking it seriously."
Sam Raimi is producing 30 Days of Night and will turn his attention to it upon the completion of Spider-Man 2. Niles said he doubts Raimi will direct the film, too.
30 Days of Night is one of four movies based on Niles work that are in development. "The entertainment industry is so receptive to comics, especially horror," Niles said during last weekend's WonderCon in San Francisco. [...]

[01.03.2004] The Anchorage Press liefert Infos zum Stand der Dinge...
[...] Filming of 30 Days of Night is at least a year away, probably longer, said Sue Binder, business manager of Ghost House. The production company plans to release three other movies before 30 Days of Night, she said. Meantime, Sony-owned Columbia Pictures is in the process of acquiring a script after passing on a screenplay Niles wrote last year. Niles said he's heard one of Sony's big guns is rewriting his script.
In a press release, Joe Drake, an entertainment industry veteran, said Raimi's 30 Days of Night is on track to hitting the big screen. Drake heads Senator International, which does financing, production and distribution of feature films. He said Columbia Pictures plans to handle 30 Days of Night's North American distribution. "With Columbia committed to moving this picture forward, we have all the elements in place to produce an original horror classic," Drake said. A spokesman for Drake's company said the film might be shot in Alaska, although it's too early to tell. [...]

[01.04.2003] Comics2Film sprach mit Mike Richardson (Dark Horse)...
[...] "Steve Niles is doing a number of books for [Dark Horse] and we took '30 Days' over to Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, who are friends of mine," Richardson said. Raimi, Tapert and Richardson all collaborated on "Timecop."
The movie was initially optioned by Senator International. Sony pictures recently came on board as a partner in the production. "Now it's going to be a much bigger project."
Niles has just turned in a first draft of the screenplay. "What I've read looks great. This is going to be a very scary movie that really lives up to a very different premise involving vampires," Richardson said. [...]

Variety reports that Sam Raimi has turned down the vampire film, 30 Days of Night because of the intense pre-production stage of Spiderman 2.

[...] "I couldn't be more thrilled," Niles said, about the prospect of Raimi directing the film version of the comic, which tells the story of an Alaskan town that has a month of night because of the Earth’s annual tilt away from the Sun. "I'm excited for the comic, the artist Ben Templesmith, and for IDW Publishing. But I never in a million years would have imagined I'd be working with Sam Raimi. It's an amazing opportunity." [...]

DreamWorks, MGM and Senator Intl. all bid in the $1 million range to acquire the arcane comic book series 30 Days of Night by Steve Niles, says Variety. Spider-Man director Sam Raimi has expressed strong interest in the vampire thriller.
Niles said he came up with the idea after reading a Minnesota newspaper article about Barrow, Alaska, the northernmost city in the state, some 340 miles above the Arctic Circle. The town of 4,500 had banned the sale of alcohol due to the spiraling rates of depression caused by spending over a month each year in total darkness. His comic book follows a flock of vampires as they descend on the town for a bloody feeding. [...]
