Less than a week ago director Peter Berg said that “Will’s busy [and] I’m pretty busy” however they were “excited to do [Hancock 2], but [they] want the script to be right and the movie to be right.”
Well Columbia must have been listening, as according to THR they’ve hired Adam Fierro and Glen Mazzara to write Hancock 2. Plot details are being kept under wraps, though they will work with Smith and director Peter Berg to build on the world hinted at in the first movie. Berg said last week that “there might be another god out there”, so we’ll probably get another A-list actor in a suit.
As Berg and Smith are busy it’ll probably be a few years before we see Hancock 2, but at least they’ve started working on it.
