Is “Hancock 2” On The Cards?
Hancock director Peter Berg has hinted about the possible sequel that would see the return of Will Smith and Charlize Theron.
Berg confirmed that a sequel would elaborate on the film’s mythology. At the end of last year’s Hancock (spoiler to follow!(, it was revealed that Will Smith’s superpowered character was actually an immortal god who became vulnerable only when in the presence of his goddess companion (Charlize Theron).
“There might be another god out there,” Berg said in an exclusive interview last month in Pasadena, Calif. “Might be another one.”
If two gods render each other mortal, imagine what kind of wrench a third would throw into the mix.
The director went to say any sequel to movie is sometime away due to Smith’s schedule:
“They like to fast-track it, but Will’s busy, I’m pretty busy,”
Berg said. “We’re excited to do one, but we want the script to be right
and the movie to be right. We don’t feel a burning imperative to go
right back into it.”
