Movie News: WORLD WAR Z Sequel and INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 Get New Writers

Written by Dave Bagshaw Thursday, 29 May 2014

Movie News

Oscar-nominated Steven Knight is now attached to write the sequel (which we refuse to write as “World War Z 2” because it looks so dang awkward) to the Brad Pitt film, with Juan Antonio Bayona set to direct. Knight most recently wrote and directed the film LOCKE starring Tom Hardy. 

In other “humanity overrun by things that aren’t humanity” news, Carter Blanchard has been drafted in to rewrite INDEPENDENCE DAY 2, which has already been rewritten by James Vanderbilt after an original script by returning director Roland Emmerich and co-writer Dean Devlin. Unfortunately, there will be no Will Smith in “ID4-2” (also dang awkward) welcoming us back to Earth.
