Director Peter Berg talked about it last week...And now comes word that duo Adam Fierro and Glen Mazzara have been hired to write the sequel to Hancock says The Hollywood Reporter.
Story deets are being kept quiet at this point, though the writers will work with star Will Smith and Berg to build on the premise in the first movie.
The original film written by Vincent Ngo and Vince Gilligan centered on a boozy, irresponsible superhero who undergoes an image makeover by a public relations man. It later is revealed that the hero is part of a line of immortal beings who have been around for more than 3,000 years and begin to lose their powers when in proximity to fellow immortals..
As my regular readers know--not a fan of the 1st flick--The one suggestion I would say right now if I could talk to the new scribes...Use Jason Bateman's publicist character as much as possible.
