Shortly after the dark, found-footage superhero-y 'Chronicle' killed at the box office, a 'Chronicle 2' was announced with screenwriter Max Landis returning to pen the script. The process has been slow to say the least, but Landis has calmed our fears with an update on the project. And yes, it is still happening and it's looking to be just as dark, if not darker than the first.
It's difficult to have audience members get into a new type of superhero that they haven't been exposed to for years already like Batman, Superman or Spider-Man. Luckily for all those involved with 'Chronicle,' lighting struck as the right combination mixed together formed a box office hit of a movie. Now 20th Century Fox wants to move forward with 'Chronicle 2,' hiring the scribe of the first movie, Max Landis, to write up the script for the sequel.
