Plot details for “Fall 2” and “Fall 3” are currently being kept under wraps, but the report states that characters from the first film will return, while leaving the door open for new characters to be introduced. It’s unclear who all will be back for the sequels, but Mark Lane, James Harris, Mercuri, David Haring, and Mann are on board as producers, with Dan Asma, John Long, and Roman Viaris returning as executive producers.
The first “Fall” centered on Becky (Grace Caroline Currey) and Hunter (Virginia Gardner), who climb 2,000 feet to the top of a remote, abandoned radio tower and wind up stranded with no way down. They must try and put their climbing skills to use as the duo fights to survive the elements with very few supplies. The film was embraced largely by critics (read our review here) and became a surprise hit. Against a relatively small budget of just $3 million, the film took in nearly $22 million at the global box office.
It had previously been revealed that at least one sequel was in the works and, at the time, it was explained that the first film had been a major streaming hit as well, particularly on Netflix internationally. Even when accounting for marketing, all involved seemingly made money on the deal, which is why it’s now a franchise. Lionsgate distributed the first film domestically, but it’s unclear if the studio will be involved again, or if Capstone will try and hammer out a different distribution deal for the sequels.
“Fall 2” and “Fall 3” do not currently have release dates set but stay tuned as it sounds like the studio is eager to get this franchise going, so stay tuned.
