Will Smith and Charlize Theron to Return in Hancock 2 - Plus a Third "All-Powerful" Actor
Posted 09.10.09 by reelz
"Everybody's going to come back for a sequel," said director Peter Berg in an interview with MTV about Hancock 2. Berg's confirmation validates what Charlize Theron said last September when she said she'd happily return to "ride the Will Smith train" if the rest of the key players returned too.
Both Smith and Theron's characters were revealed at the end of Hancock to be immortal gods who become vulnerable when near each other for any length of time. For the sequel, Berg said we can expect the appearance of at least one more all-powerful god. What's more, he's got his eye on a well-known actor to play the third superhero.
We have someone in mind. I'm not gonna tell you who, but we have!"
Given that Will and Charlize are about as big as stars come, this means that he's clearly got another A-lister in mind for the movie. What a tease!
