QUARANTINE 2: Fly the Deadly Skies

HorrorBlips: vote it up!

is reporting that principle photography has wrapped on Quarantine 2: Terminal.

Quarantine is a stupidly derivative remake of the Spanish film REC about a strange infection that turns residents of a quarantined apartment building into savage killers. Although there is a REC 2 (review) that takes place in the same apartment, Quarantine 2 is an entirely new different  plot set largely in an airport terminal.
In QUARANTINE, an apartment building in Los Angeles was quarantined by the CDC (Center for Disease Control), trapping the frightened residents inside as a deadly mutant virus turned the residents into rabid killers. QUARANTINE 2: TERMINAL picks up later that night at LAX, as passengers board a flight to Nashville. When a passenger becomes violently ill with a mysterious rabies-like virus, the plane makes an emergency landing at a large metropolitan airport. Jenny (Mercedes Masohn, CBS’s "Three Rivers"), a heroic yet inexperienced flight attendant, takes charge of the safety of her passengers. Relieved when a swarm of heavily equipped emergency vehicles, police units and the CDC arrive, Jenny and the passengers soon discover that they have been quarantined and are now trapped. Desperate to escape, Jenny enlists the help of one of the surviving passengers, a kindergarten teacher, Henry (Josh Cooke, A Fork In The Road, I Love you Man), to devise a plan to survive.
I didn't care for Quarantine, but I was also dissatisfied with REC 2. I noted in my review of REC 2 that I thought it would be ironic to see a Quarantine sequel that turned out to be better. Perhaps we're on the right road?

Another curious question: Will this film also be filmed in the POV style? Nothing in the plot synopsis indicates anything about camera footage. Interesting.
