In the sequel…
“Survival or extinction. Following the international success of ‘Occupation Rainfall’, comes the continuing chapters of the ‘Rainfall’ trilogy. Earth’s resistance is thrown into chaos as an ominous new threat ruthlessly hunts down the humans that are left, and any aliens who have joined them. With no clear leader and struggling to find common ground, the resistance finds itself on the brink of destruction. Aboard the Mothership, a group of survivors, plan to strike at the heart of the Alien threat – the Rainfall weapon – as the fate of all life hangs in the balance.”
The film is written and directed by Luke Sparke.
A third Rainfall is already in the works and is said to be filmed back-to-back in a custom-built LED volume stage.
