In a world in which bad decisions are as common as breathing, some troubling news has come out regarding the sequel to the amazing flick Chronicle. The Playlist recently caught up with John Landis (father or Chronicle scribe Max Landis), who had this to say…

[Max] “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.”

As previously reported, Chronicle 2 was moving along nicely, and as the first film was about the world’s first superhero, the sequel was to be about the world’s first supervillain.

More as it comes.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  1. What some studios are starting to learn is that maintaining the core cult audience of a movie is important. They’re the people who buy the blu rays. Unfortunately this studio obviously isn’t one of them. Chronicle had a lot of flaws but overall it was very entertaining. I’d like to see them go with the sequel Landis had in mind.

  2. I would argue that the first Chronicle wasn’t at all about the “world’s first superhero” but rather Andrew’s journey to becoming, in essence, a real-world super-villain. But I don’t know how he could be the big bad in a sequel, so… Maybe Matt goes bad? Fuck, I don’t know.

  3. They want “Chronicle” again? What in the fuck does that even mean? I’m horrified to find out. Would a sequel have been so bad? Shit.
