Filming wrapped yesterday on The Stakelander, the sequel to 2010’s Stake Land, EW reports. Up until now, the sequel has been kept quiet. Nick Damici and Connor Paolo are reprising their roles as Mister and Martin, the stars of the first film. Jim Mickle directed based on the script he co-wrote Damici.
The Stakelander picks up several years after the events of Stake Land. Martin (Paola) finds himself alone in the badlands after his home was destroyed and sets out to find his vampire-killing mentor Mister, the only man who can help him get revenge.
Jim Mickle’s Stake Land has long been an audience favorite.” Greg Newman of Dark Sky Films, who is producing, said. “The film was embraced by fans across the world and we are thrilled to see Nick Damici reprise his role of Mister, the master vamp-hunter.
In Stake Land an epidemic of vampirism strikes America and humans find themselves on the run from vicious, grotesque, feral beasts. Cities are tombs and survivors cling together in rural pockets, fearful of nightfall. When his family is slaughtered, young Martin is taken under the wing of a grizzled, wayward hunter whose new prey is the undead. Known only as Mister, the vampire stalker takes Martin on a journey through the hard-hit towns of America’s heartland, searching for a better place, killing any bloodsuckers that cross their path.
Laura Abramsen, Bonnie Dennison, AC Peterson, Kristina Hughes, and Steven Williams co-star in the post-apocalyptic vampire tale. Mark Montague of Berserker Entertainment and the SyFy channel co-produce. The Stakelander will premiere as a SyFy Original.
