FALLEN Sequel, TORMENT, Already in Development

A Fallen sequel is in the works, despite Fallen not having been released yet.

A movie for Torment, the Fallen sequel to Lauren Kate‘s four-book series, is already in its pre-production phase, even though there hasn’t even been an official release date for the first movie.  This didn’t stop producer and former MLB player Mark Ciardi from getting his new production studio Aspire Entertainment to start work on the sequel.

The story of Fallen is as follows:

[Actress Addison] Timlin portrays a quiet teen who’s sent to the Sword and Cross reform school after she’s suspected of killing a boy. The school turns out to be full of supernatural occurrences, and many of the students are fallen angels.

Addison Timlin is joined by Jeremy Irvine, Harrison Gilbertson, and Joely Richardson.

Whether the sequel, which would likely be named Torment if it follows the book titles, would actually be made is still up in the air since it usually depends on the success of the previous movie.  However, if all goes well, Ciardi expects the movie to be sold to and promoted in time for Comic-Con in July 2015.   Lofty goal, considering the amount of exposure an event such as the San Diego Comic-Con would give to another YA-based sci-fi/fantasy .

That doesn’t necessarily mean a big box-office draw (i.e. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones), but still the idea of being able to promote Fallen to a large number of picky, snarky, cosplay-wearing nerds and geeks, is hopeful at best.

For now, for all you Fallen fans, just know that they’re working on it.

Fallen was directed by Scott Hicks.

Aspire was formed in October by Ciardi, who specialized in inspirational sports dramas such as “Million Dollar Arm” and “The Rookie” while at Mayhem Pictures with Gordon Gray. He joined Tom Duterme and venture capitalists William Chang and Ash Vasudevan to form the new production company with aim of telling aspirational stories about characters overcoming adversity.

    I would love to be a series made out of it if a second movie isn’t on the cards. 🙂 it could work well with the amount of detail put into the episodes in comparison as a lot had to be cut out from the movie.

  2. It be NICE if they would continue to make the series into movies and NOT a TV series. This series has plenty of fans to support it! I can’t stand when the movie execs tease us with making the first of a series into a movie and don’t continue or make it as a TV series with different actors (Mortal Instruments series). It’s all about the money with them! Not sure if anybody is even reading these, but I’m hoping some one is and taking note. We all would like to see it continue on (And with same actors).

    • I completely agree with you. I wanted to see the mortal instruments continue as movies. Its was both my all time favorite series as well as movie for a very long time. I however never found myself as interested in the tv show, which became very off track from the books and to be completely honest ruined my imagination and love for some of the characters. As for the fallen series, I love them as well and enjoyed the movie which really left me with the cliff hanger wanting to keep going. Iv been checking for a couple years now trying to find the next “movie”. As time goes i continue to rewatch “fallen” time and time again, always getting my hope back up for a sequel. I hope that one days it happens.

  3. I own the entire series in paperback, on kindle, and in audible. I own Fallen on dvd. Please, please tell me the rest are in the making! Fallen’s book to movie is by far the best I’ve seen in a long time. The casting was perfect and liberties taken weren’t distracting (unlike Mortal Instruments, Beautiful Creatures, Breaking Dawn part 2 – just to name a few).
    I loved Fallen, and I really hope Torment will be coming soon!!

  4. I just watched the movie FALLEN with my sister and we both loved it and she has read all the books and we both would love to know if the sequel will continue and torment will be next

  5. I watched this movie, with low expectations. It was cringey, bland, emotionless and left me feeling empty. But, I would still like to have a sequel. I enjoyed it.

  6. I really hope you do make a sequel I am so obsessed with this movie I have watched it like 5 times in one day I can’t even watch anything else but please make another movie don’t have us (fans) addicted and you don’t make another one I am so looking forward to the next movie and the next one after that and so on and so on.

  7. I read these books in middle school and just found out this movie was made for the first book. After watching Fallen I am just as obsessed with the series. PLEASE MAKE A SEQUEL.

  8. Yes! Answers would be lovely!! Great movie! I need more! Please let us know if there is a sequel! I would hate to get my hopes up!
