On the dawn of the San Diego Comic-Con, writer Max Landis tweeted that he won’t be involved in Twentieth Century Fox’s sequel to Chronicle.
“Chronicle 2 is still probably happening, just not with my involvement as of now. It’s a bummer, but there are no real hard feelings,” he stated.
“They hired new writers on it. I’m sure they’ll announce soon. Just hope this answers the questions I’ve been getting everyday.”
Josh Trank made his directorial debut with Chronicle, which took in $126M worldwide at the box office. It sort of rendered the Akira adaptation useless. In it, “Three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides.“
