Noboby was one of many largest (and greatest) surprises of the 12 months, reinventing Bob Odenkirk as a legit action icon. In reality, regardless of opening within the midst of a pandemic (when theaters had been truly closed in a lot of North America) the movie nonetheless grossed a wonderful $26 million domestically (it is truly the eleventh highest grossing film of the 12 months domestically), and more than doubled that take internationally – all on a $16 million funds.
With the apparent hope that it will flip right into a John Wick-style franchise, apparently work has already begun on a script for a sequel, a reality confirmed to me solely by director Ilya Naishuller in an interview we had in regards to the film’s dwelling video launch.
“There’s plenty of stories that can be told in this world, with the character Hutch. I know that Derek (Kolstad – the writer) has begun work on the sequel,” revealed Naishuller. However, he was fast to qualify that the film is on no account greenlit, and that he personally solely considers a film greenlit when he is on the set capturing. However, he famous that audiences did certainly flip as much as the see the movie and that critics cherished it (licensed contemporary on Rotten Tomatoes with 84%)
“Whether it’ll happen, time will tell, but all the neccesary seeds have been planted,” he added.
Naishuller, whose full interview with JoBlo will likely be out subsequent week, additionally appeared happy once I talked about that Connie Nielsen, who performed Hutch’s spouse, ought to get in on the action subsequent time. “Well, I like the way you’re thinking Chris because you’re right on the MONEY!”
So there you’ve gotten it. Are you psyched for a NOBODY 2? I’d personally like to see it develop into this John Wick-style franchise for Odenkirk. Nobody is presently avaialble to personal digitally and hits DVD/Blu-ray/4K June twenty second!
