Max Landis Reveals the Superpower Origins Behind ‘Chronicle’

Max Landis reveals the superpower origins in Chronicle Be warned, for those who haven't seen 2012's Chronicle yet, there will be spoilers contained within.

Back in July, Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis revealed that he is no longer attached to write the sequel, Chronicle 2, and that director Josh Trank was no longer involved as well. Today, the writer revealed that his script would have shown fans what the source of Matt, (Alex Russell), Andrew (Dane DeHaan) and Steve's (Michael B. Jordan) superpowers really was. Here's how he described the superpower source, known as Massive Organic Geoelectric Objects (MOGO), in a recent interview.

"(They are) a race of crystalline organisms that communicate and propel themselves through radio waves, and turn higher life forms into telekinetic drones."

He also briefly described the plot of his very dark sequel script that was rejected by 20th Century Fox.

"Two embittered souls as antiheroes trying to catch the survivor of the first film."

The writer previously teased "MOGO" in a series of tweets from August, but this is the first detailed description we've had of the creatures. Without a writer or director on board, it isn't known what will happen with this potential sequel at this time.

Chronicle was released February 3rd, 2012.

Chronicle 2 is in development .

    Such a shame this wont be happening. Well at least not the way the creators want it too. I am not a fan of the found footage genre for the most part but was pleastenly surprised at the quality of the original film.
