Scott Mann’s survival thriller Fall is getting not just one but two sequels, which will be made back-to-back
Earlier this year, we heard that director/co-writer Scott Mann and the producers at Tea Shop Productions were developing a sequel to the survival thriller Fall (watch it HERE), which became an international success when it reached the Netflix streaming service. While doing the press rounds for Shazam!: Fury of the Gods, Fall star Grace Caroline Currey said she thought it would be “really cool” if she got the chance to come back for the sequel. Now it sounds like Currey is going to have a couple opportunities to return to the world of Fall, as The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that Capstone Studios has green lit not just one but two sequels!
Mann will be producing both sequels and also intends to co-write and direct the third film of the trilogy. There’s no word on who’s writing or directing Fall 2, which is scheduled to begin filming in June of 2024.
Scripted by Scott Mann and Jonathan Frank, Fall had the following synopsis: For best friends Becky and Hunter, life is all about conquering fears and pushing limits. But after they climb 2,000 feet to the top of a remote, abandoned radio tower, they find themselves stranded with no way down. Now Becky and Hunter’s expert climbing skills will be put to the ultimate test as they desperately fight to survive the elements, a lack of supplies, and vertigo-inducing heights.
Currey was joined in the cast by Virginia Gardner (Halloween 2018), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead), and Mason Gooding (Scream 2022).
There’s no word on what sort of thrilling situations Fall 2 and Fall 3 will be bringing to the screen, but The Hollywood Reporter says we can expect to see characters from the first film return in the sequels, which will, of course, also be introducing new characters.
Mann is producing the Fall sequels with Mark Lane and James Harris of Tea Shop Productions, Capstone’s Christian Mercuri, and David Haring. Dan Asma, John Long, and Roman Viaris serve as executive producers. Capstone CEO Mercuri is financing both of the sequels.
Mercuri provided the following statement: “These two new sequels are wonderful opportunities to expand on the original. We want to now take the franchise even further as we assemble the very best team and ideas to ensure the next hair-raising, death defying and pulse pounding film to global audiences.“
Mann added: “I am thrilled to be continuing the Fall journey and taking it to the next level. We’ve got a really special cinematic experience planned and I’m immensely grateful to my fellow producers for backing the vision. I’m also excited to be working with new collaborators as well as reuniting with the original gang, and obviously can’t wait to be back filming thousands of feet up.“
