Content and Black Camel Pictures announced today that principal photography has begun on Outpost: Black Sun, the sequel to the indie action horror Outpost. Content co-developed the script with Black Camel Pictures and it is produced in association with Matador Pictures with development and production investment from Creative Scotland.
Outpost: Black Sun sees the reunion of the original Outpost creative team, including Steve Barker, who directs from a script he co-wrote with Rae Brunton. The film is produced by Arabella Page Croft and Kieran Parker (Outpost, Legacy) from Black Camel. Matador’s Nigel Thomas and Content’s Jamie Carmichael return as exec producers.
The cast includes Richard Coyle (W.E, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, The Libertine) and Catherine Steadman (The Tudors), Julian Wadham (Outpost, The English Patient), and Johnny Meres.
The original Outpost takes place in war-torn Eastern Europe, where a world-weary group of mercenaries discover a long-hidden secret in an abandoned WWII bunker – the remnants of a series of bloody and gruesome experiments carried out during World War 2. Amid the carnage, they find a survivor, and begin getting killed one by one.
With the announcement, the first photo from the film, which to be a piece of concept art, has also been released, which you can see below.
