John Landis Says That Fox Isn't Happy With Max Landis' "Amazing" CHRONICLE 2 Screenplay
Max Landis signed up to pen a sequel to Josh Trank's Chronicle earlier this year, but according to the writer's own father, 20th Century Fox aren't too happy with his screenplay. Why? Well, they went more of the same rather than a continuation of the story which kicked off in the first film.
Just when it looked like 20th Century Fox were finally getting their act together (with hits like X-Men: First Class and Rise of the Planet of the Apes), the following piece of news hits. Prolific director, screenwriter, actor, and producer John Landis tells The Playlist that the studio hasn't responded that well to his son Max's screenplay for Chronicle 2. Apparently, "He wrote a sequel, and it’s amazing, and the studio read it and said, 'We want ‘Chronicle’ again!' And he said, 'No, this is the sequel, it’s the evolution, and they said 'No, we want that movie again!' So it’s difficult, we’re dealing with a difficult business.'" So, in other words, they want more of the same rather than the continuation of the story from the first film. Oh dear. Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
