After penning the excellent CHRONICLE, Max Landis recently announced that he is no longer working on CHRONICLE 2 due to differences with the studio. The writer has since taken to his Twitter account to give an idea of where he planned to take the series.

Landis said, “In retrospect, I’m not even sure if fans of the first film would’ve been ready or eager for my second installment as originally written. Gone was the aspirational ‘what would you do,’ gone where the pranks and bromance, gone were lovely tragic Andrew and hopeful, bright Steve. In their place was a dark, frustratingly unblinking 7stare into a complicated world that posed the question is it worth it to be a hero…”

He then added, “Told from the point of view of a heartbroken and insane woman who would martyr herself to the cause of being the world’s first villain. It was, in my estimation, a sequel that elaborated on the ideas and situations from the first to create a different genre of movie. In the best of worlds, in my optimistic but wildly prejudiced eyes, this could make it an ALIENS, a TERMINATOR 2… in the worse a GREASE 2. So at the end of the day, maybe it’s better that Martyr never saw the light of day. Sad I didn’t get to do some of my other versions.”

Despite Landis no longer being on board, CHRONICLE 2 is still pressing ahead.
