Will Smith’s superhero movie Hancock may have divided comic-book fans — some liked it, some not so much — but regardless it made enough cash to warrant the go-ahead on a sequel. And now director Peter Berg is saying that the first film’s stars, namely Smith and Charlize Theron, will be back for part two.
“Everybody’s going to come back for a sequel,” Berg said in response to a question about the two stars, reports MTV’s Splash Page. There’s no word on the status of Jason Bateman’s sad-sack character from the original, however.
Berg will be helming the sequel, which he says will feature the appearance of at least one more of the super-powered, god-like beings portrayed by Smith in the first film.
“We have [someone in mind for the role],” Berg tells the site. “I’m not gonna tell you who, but we have!”
