Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.18.09] post apocalyptic movie news script scifi

Fans of Richard Stanley's Hardware might be interested to know that the script for his yet unmade post-apocalyptic sequel, Hardware 2: Ground Zero, is available to download. If we can't see it, at least we can read it. I'm about halfway through and it's definitely a story I wish I was watching. It's more epic in scale than the first and yet the unique feel of the original is completely intact.

The Mark-13's are in mass production. The US government is employing them to patrol the US-Mexican border and deal with illegal aliens. Shades returns to Earth after a series of space flight assignments. Feeling alone in the world, he decides to seek out Jill, who's now living in a hippie colony in Splendora, Texas.

The colony consists of "destructuralists," who beseech the human race to abandon all technology and re-unite with nature. As Shades and his newly-found companion, battle-scarred vet Lyle Maddox arrive to Splendora, they find Jill earnestly believing in the cause, but even she is oblivious to what ultimately lies beneath the peaceful colony. Something big enough to attract a phalanx of Mark-13 droids as well as a Mexican guerilla leader, who thinks he's channelling the spirit of Emilio Zapata...

Stanley is currently in production on Vacation, an apocalyptic film about a luckless pair of American holiday-makers stranded in the middle east by the outbreak of World war III. He calls it "a fun-filled romantic holocaust for two."
