Max Landis Updates On CHRONICLE Sequel
The writer talks about the upcoming sequel to this year's found footage/superhero movie Chronicle, returning characters, and whether or not Josh Trank will return to direct.
Talking with MeMovies, screenwriter Max Landis updates on the proposed sequel to Chronicle, a found footage/superhero film released this year to critical acclaim. Landis says that the footage we saw in the first film did get out to the public. "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."
For those who hoped that director Josh Trank will return for the sequel, Landis has some disappointing news. "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." Recently, it was confirmed that Trank will be working on the Fantastic Four reboot (though it's not clear whether or not he'll direct), and he's also attached to direct The Red Star for Warner Bros.
Concerning returning characters, Landis reveals that Matt (played by Alex Russell) will return for the sequel. "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 (Chronicle) 2." Additionally, Landis says that Chronicle 2 will be about "the world’s first ‘supervillain’".
