Actors Will Smith, Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman have all reportedly jumped onboard for a sequel to the 2008 blockbuster, Hancock.
According to Variety, director Peter Berg will once again direct the unconventional superhero story. “Everybody’s going to come back for a sequel,” Berg said at the Toronto Film Festival.
While writers Adam Fierro (24, Dexter) and Glen Mazzara (The Shield) are currently working on a script, story line details are being kept under wraps.
Berg did reveal that Smith and Theron will once again play immortal gods who lose their powers in each other’s presence. This time, however, they’ll have to pair up to deal with a third entity. Bateman return as the PR guy who transformed Hancock’s public image.
At press time, there was no set release date for the flick.
