Will there be a sequel to 365 Days: This Day?

Thanks to the way 365 Days: This Day ends, we can be sure that there is going to be a sequel. Laura is the main character of these movies, so killing her and continuing without her would be a very strange creative choice. Anything can happen, of course, but this option seems a bit a far stretched.

Also, the movie finishes in a very strange way. There is really no resolution at all when it comes to the storylines of our main characters and even the ones from important supporting players like Olga. Ending a movie series with an ending like that would be crazy. Take this ending for what it is, a cliffhanger to get people excited about what is going to happen in the next one.

When will this sequel get released? Hopefully, soon. 365 Days doesn’t seem to be a franchise that relies on visual effects or a lot of post-production, so filming a sequel fast and loose can fit the creator’s schedule quite easily.
