Max Landis Teases ‘Chronicle 2′ Apocalypse

In an interview with Tbreak, Chronicle writer Max Landis reveals a small spoiler for the film on how the footage from Chronicle affects the events in the sequel:

…the movie you saw (Chronicle) in the sequel, is a thing. That edited footage… is a thing. So it’s not like ‘we found this footage after this kids died’. You can’t deny cars being thrown in the air in Seattle. You saw all those helicopters. The world changed. That’s the end of Chronicle. And things are going to be different now. They can’t possibly cover up what happened.

While also revealing that director Josh Trank is unlikely to return for the sequel, he does tease the return of Alex Russell as “Matt Garrety”. “I loved Matt, and I felt really bad for him because I understood just how emotionally lazy he is and how he doesn’t really do what he’s doing. And that’s why I’m putting him through hell in (Chronicle) 2.

The low(er) budgeted Chronicle, which has made nearly $125 million worldwide, was basically a modern/American Akira about three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery.

    i love the first movie. as long as the quality and passion for making the movie is there like it clearly was in the first movie (meaning no quick cash grab deal) then i’m all up for a sequel.

    Chronicle was cool, but was held back by the ‘found footage’ aspect. Hopefully the sequel won’t use this gimmick and explore the ideas further.

    Chronicle was great and was one of the only found-footage movies that is actually perfected. Because we know it’s fake so they play around with the effects of things rather than seriously trying to make it realistic. Look forward to seeing a sequel just as long as it is as good as the original.
