Dream Entertainment is planning two sequels to Michael Davis' horror picture Monster Man, which has been selling briskly at AFM.
'We've known since the beginning that Monster Man really stood out from the pack and had great potential for franchising,' Dream co-chief Ehud Bleiberg said. 'The sequels will retain the same mordant humour and gory visuals as the original and of course we'll see the return of our monstrous truck and driver.'
Monster Man is due to be released in the US through Lions Gate and centres on two friends who embark upon a road trip only to end up being pursued by a monster truck. Dream sold all UK rights to Tartan Film and Italian rights to Sharada at AFM last week and has already sold the picture to multiple territories. Dream co-produced Monster Man with Lions Gate Films.
