All it takes for Nobody 2 is to get the green light from the studio, as director Ilya Naishuller has confirmed that “all the necessary seeds have been planted.” Written by the creator of John Wick Derek kolstad, the action thriller follows Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk as a seemingly ordinary family man who must turn to violence to keep his family safe. It was theatrically released by Universal Pictures in March, followed by an on-demand release in April.
At this time, a Nobody the sequel hasn’t been officially lit, so it’s unclear whether Nobody 2 will actually become a reality. What we do know is that Naishuller and Kolstad are eager to do so. While there is still no guarantee of Universal, Naishuller recently confirmed that Kolstad is actively working on the sequel. As the director told JoBlo:
“There are a lot of stories that can be told in this world, with the character of Hutch (Odenkirk). I know Derek started working on the sequel. That will happen, time will tell, but every necessary seeds have been planted. ”
While Hutch did most of the damage in Nobody, it looks like his wife Becca will be in for the action next time around. When it was suggested to Naishuller that Connie nielsen should get more involved, here’s what the director had to say in response.
“Well I like the way you think Chris [Bumbray of JoBlo], because you are right about the MONEY! ”
Along with Odenkirk and Nielsen, the cast of Nobody included Aleksei Serebryakov, RZA, Michael Ironside, Colin Salmon and Christopher Lloyd. David Leitch, Kelly McCormick, Braden Aftergood, Marc Provissiero and Odenkirk produced.
In April, Kolstad also revealed that he had an opening scene in mind for the potential sequel. According to Collider, the writer explained how the opening scene of Nobody was the first thing he introduced to Odenkirk, and it helped him sell the film. If the sequel happens, Kolstad takes a similar approach to his creation, as he revealed he started the process by devising a compelling opening scene.
“Do you remember the first scene from the movie? It was the first thing I presented to Bob, at the meeting, because I had the dream the night before,” Kolstad explained. “And I said to Sonia, my wife, before the meeting, she said you had to open up with that. I threw that up and Bob said…” you’re fucked up, aren’t you? “”
Kolstad added, “And so on the second one I have the opening scene. And we just laugh and chuckle when you see this thing because it’s in line with that. And I always want to start off. this way.” the second, I have the opening scene. And we’re all laughing and giggling when you see this thing because it’s consistent with that. And I always want to start like this. “
As Nobody has been a success with its on-demand theatrical release, it seems clear that a sequel is being made. This is especially the case with the original writer and director on board. Hopefully a green light comes for the project as soon as possible. This news comes to us from JoBlo.
