Remember that Will Smith movie about all those super powers and I think Charlize Theron was somewhere there, too?
Oh, yeah… Hancock!
It’s been a few years since it was released in 2008 and even longer than that since we heard talk of a sequel but it looks like it is back in the books.
The director, Peter Berg, updated Comic Book Movie with the happs on this sequel.
We’ve been talking about the sequel between us, Will Smith, [producers] Michael Mann and Akiva Goldman and myself. We’re all interested, but we literally just have trouble getting into the same room at the same time. We did have a series of meetings last year and started to hash out an idea for sequel — and Will Smith actually had the idea — so I think it will happen, it’s just a question of timing.
Apparently Will Smith is a master story teller or something. According to his ex-wife, anyway, and who knows how credible she is.
Hancock did well enough at the box office back in the day, bringing in about $620 million in total. Given that it’s been quite a while since we last heard anything about this sequel and that it’ll probably be another while before this thing is a thing… what are you guys thinking? Is there enough momentum for this ship to sail, or is it going to end up pulling a Costa Concordia? (It’s too soon, I know.)
