Scott Mann’s Fall is becoming a franchise, with two sequels already greenlit. Filming for the first sequel begins next year.
What we’ll now have to call the first Fall was brilliantly simple, in both premise and execution; what if two women were to become trapped somewhere really high up?
The film, which premiered in 2022, became a huge success with $20m box office gross against a measly $3m budget, so news of upcoming sequels isn’t exactly… well, news.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that not only are we getting the already confirmed Fall 2, but Fall 3 is on the cards as well. Scott Mann, the director and co-writer of the first film, will return to produce both films, and has signed on to co-write and direct the third film. Fall 2 doesn’t have a director attached quite yet, it seems.
Other details on the sequels are still scarce. We’re promised that characters from the first film will return and new ones will be introduced, but we don’t know whether Fall 2 and 3 will be direct sequels of the first film, which saw Grace Caroline Currey and Virginia Gardner’s characters stranded atop a 2,000-foot-tall TV tower.
“I am thrilled to be continuing the Fall journey and taking it to the next level,” Mann said of the upcoming sequels. “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.”
Fall was a bit of a surprise hit when it premiered. It was warmly received by critics and when the film dropped on Netflix earlier this year, it became a huge phenomenon and a must-see film. The film’s success is a testament to innovative, economic filmmaking; Mann worked miracles with a small budget, but anyone who saw Fall in cinemas knows just how effective those shots up on the tower were. We nearly lost our lunch…
“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,” said Christian Mercuri, one of the producers of the first film and the CEO of Capstone Studios.
Fall 2 is set to enter production as early as June 2024, but no release date has been set yet. We’ll keep you posted!
