While conducting an interview with Mr. Brooks writer/director Bruce A. Evans for the upcoming DVD, he discussed the possibility of bringing this character back for a sequel.

I remember reading about Kevin Costner saying that the initial script was put together with an idea that it could be sequelized. Are there any plans for Mr. Brooks 2?

Bruce Evans: If it's box office and DVD justifies it, yes. When we wrote it obviously the ending is open ended and Earl is in great pain because of his daughter. There is an open-ended... neither Earl, the daughter or Atwood has come to a conclusion.
