"Chronicle" writer Max Landis talked to TBreak about the film and the subject of Chronicle 2 came up.
Landis is currently writing the script which will focus on the aftermath of the events in the first film.
"The movie you saw (Chronicle) in the sequel, is a thing. That edited footage … is a thing. So it’s not like ‘we found this footage after this kids died’. You can’t deny cars being thrown in the air in Seattle. You saw all those helicopters. The world changed. That’s the end of ‘Chronicle’. And things are going to be different now. They can’t possibly cover up what happened" says Landis.
Aussie actor Alex Russell (pictured) is expected to return as Matt Garetty.
“I loved Matt, and I felt really bad for him because I understood just how emotionally lazy he is and how he doesn’t really do what he’s doing. And that’s why I’m putting him through hell in [number] 2" And he adds that the film will essentially be about the world’s first super-villain.
Landis says that director Josh Trank will most likely pass on the sequel- "Probably not. Josh is all over the place with other projects. I’m also all over the place with other projects, but ‘Chronicle’ is really my baby. Josh will probably be involved in some respect but right now I just want to get the script done."
The first film hits Blu-ray/DVD on May 15th.
