Sure, the thing went straight to DVD, but how do you think poor Brad Turner, who directed the thing, feels about your lack of respect? (Actually, since he directed basically every 24 episode this year -- not to mention a ton of Stargate stuff -- he's probably not too bothered. Never mind.)
Well, your (and my) ignorance of the project notwithstanding, the DVD made over $11 million in the US alone, so it's really no surprise that, yes, there's another one on the way. Written by Ben Ripley -- the brilliant mind behind installment three -- and directed by Nick Lyon, Species IV will start filming in October in Mexico City. You probably won't believe this, but the plot revolves around a hot woman who's part alien getting angry, and wreaking blood havoc on all the asses she can find. Sweet, right? Hey, at least you know what you're getting into with these -- there's no risk you'll see a Species movie with, like, lots of healthy puppies, and government agents who live to see old age.
