Night of the Comet
Speaking with Bloody-Disgusting, screenwriter Roxanne Benjamin revealed she retains the original film’s “very real sister relationship” between Samantha and Regina, in which “they’re kind of dicks to each other.”
I love the original, and I love telling stories about girls facing impossible odds, like us against the world kind of stuff. And I think that’s what’s so cool about the first one is that it’s this very real sister relationship where they’re kind of dicks to each other, but really protective of each other at the same time. That’s how siblings go. I love seeing that in a genre setting because I don’t feel like we get those kinds of girl buddy movies that are facing down action and adventure as much. And so that’s the kind of stuff I want to make. That was the core of approach to this.

In a recent interview with The Mirror, actor Jerome Flynn revealed—in as vague a manner as possible—he’ll be playing “a cowboy” in the upcoming Dark Tower TV series.
