Back in March, we reported that 20th Century Fox hired Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis to write the script for Chronicle 2. Today, the writer's father, John Landis, revealed the studio isn't pleased with his son's draft.
"He 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."
Alex Russell, Dane DeHaan, and Michael B. Jordan starred in the original Chronicle as three friends who develop supernatural powers. It isn't known if this trio of young stars will return for the sequel, or if Josh Trank will be back to direct. Chronicle took in an impressive $126 million worldwide, from just a $12 million budget.
