Screenwriter Max Landis wowed geeks and movie goers alike with the innovative new super hero drama, Chronicle. Now he’s talking about the upcoming sequel and I am really excited about what he has to say.

The first bit of news is that Alex Russell, will return as Matt Garetty:

“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.”

On The Plot:

“Small spoiler – 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.”

The sad news about the whole thing is that the great director who made the first movie happen, Josh Trank, will probably not be returnng:

Probably not. Josh is all over the place with other projects. I’m also all over the place with other projects, but ‘Chronicle’ is really my baby. Josh will probably be involved in some respect but right now I just want to get the script done.
