Peter Berg’s Hancock with Will Smith, Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman was a solid summer tentpole film for Columbia Pictures. Yet thus far, talks of a sequel have been near nonexistent.
In talking with SCI FI Wire, Berg offered up some thoughts of where he thinks Hancock 2 could potentially go and where he and Smith stand on the project. “There might be another god out there,” Berg offered. “Might be another one.”
Hancock’s rules of gods existing as pairs and there only being two left would have to be bent for Berg’s vision to become a reality. Along with the gods, Berg envisions Bateman’s character continuing his charity work where he left off after the last film.
Berg closed his comments suggesting Columbia Pictures is all about a Hancock sequel but he and Smith are too busy right now. They want to make it but are in no hurry to rush into development, or as Berg put it, they don’t have a “burning imperative to go right back into it.”
