Clay Epstein’s Film Mode Entertainment and Luke Sparke’s Sparke Films announce the next feature films in the sci-fi action thriller OCCUPATION: RAINFALL franchise, OCCUPATION: RAINFALL CHAPTER 2 (with CHAPTER 3 already in the works). The film stars Jeremy Piven (Rock n Rolla, Entourage) Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica, Van Helsing, Bombshell and the upcoming Step Up: High Water), Liam McIntyre (Spartacus) and Danny Trejo (Machete).
Piven, Van Dien, Helfer, McIntyre and Trejo join the powerful ensemble of returning cast members including the voice of Jason Isaacs, Jet Tranter, Dan Ewing, Zac Garred, Charles Mesure, and Dena Kaplan. Additional casting announcements of both new and returning cast will be announced in the lead-up to filming.  The film is written and directed by Luke Sparke.
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.
“We’re thrilled to be introducing to this highly commercially viable, genre-raising film franchise to the marketplace in Cannes and the multi-project distribution deal between Film Mode and Sparke Films to the world at large. Luke’s ability to execute large scale productions with stellar casts, gripping storylines and top-of-the-line special f/x truly sets Rainfall apart from others,” said Epstein.

“It’s been a genuine thrill to see OCCUPATION RAINFALL find its audience as it rolled out around the world. Every day, it finds new fans and the feedback from them has been amazingly supportive. I’m so happy that I can bring my vision for the ‘Rainfall Trilogy’ to the screens very, very soon. They are bigger, better and bombastic but also uniquely grounded in humanity and what it means to be a member of this planet. Filming these stories back-to-back later this year will be a huge challenge but one I’m excited to deep dive into with the amazing cast and crew we are gathering. It’s a celebration of sci/fi!” said Sparke.
“We are thrilled to be continuing the Rainfall saga and introducing the fans to some more memorable and unique characters and landscapes in this next chapter. This film is going to show the world that Sparke Films has taken this whole story to a new level of mind blowing and epic sci fi action and that is just the beginning,” said producers Carly Sparke and Carmel Imrie.
OCCUPATION: RAINFALL CHAPTER 2 will enter pre-production immediately following the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. Filming will take place in Australia starting in the 3rd Quarter of this year. Chapters 2 and 3 are being filmed back-to-back in a custom-built LED volume stage.
Producers are Carly Sparke and Carmel Imrie. Co-Producers are Alex Becconsall, Zac Garred, and Liam McIntyre. Executive Producers are Clay Epstein, Geoff Imrie and Luke Sparke.
Film Mode Entertainment is handling worldwide sales rights.
