Peter Berg and Will Smith haven’t given up on a sequel to Hancock.
According to Berg, Smith is still interested in reprising his role from the first film and there are plans in place for a second installment.
“We’ve been talking about the sequel between us, Will Smith, [producers] Michael Mann and Akiva Goldsman and myself,” says Berg. “We’re all interested, but we literally just have trouble getting into the same room at the same time. We did have a series of meetings last year and started to hash out an idea for sequel—and Will Smith actually had the idea—so I think it will happen, it’s just a question of timing.”
Of course, the bigger question is–do audiences really want a Hancock sequel?
