Peter Berg reunites cast of Hancock for sequel?

HancockRepeated with what was probably some glee at the Toronto Film Festival, Variety reported that director Peter Berg has reunited stars Will Smith, Charlize Theron, and Jason Batemam to do a sequel to the hit anti-hero film Hancock.

Though there hasn’t been any confirmation from Sony/Columbia with a release date or anything like that or any corroboration from the stars’ representatives, Berg’s exact words were “Everybody’s going to come back for a sequel” and you can’t get more unambiguous than that, right?

A previous report from The Hollywood Reporter noted that Berg and writers Adam Fierro (“Dexter”) and Glen Mazzara (“The Shield”) have been working on a script that explores more about the world from which Hancock and his star-crossed lover got their powers and immortality by giving them a bad guy for them to team up against—though I wonder how hard it will be for them since they can’t be in each others’ presence without losing their powers.

We’ll keep you appraised on this one as things develop.

    Hopefully the second movie has more of the humor of the first half of the first movie, without the major confusion and let-down of the second half.

    See, the second half of the first movie should have been THIS movie. The first one didn't spend enough time exploring Hancock's character or the concept of him being the only superhero in the world, as well as a massive jerk. It jumped way too quickly into the origin story, which should have been hinted at, and then explored further in the second film. Just my thoughts.
