Writers Hired for "Hancock" Sequel

Posted: August 25th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Writers Hired for "Hancock" SequelSubmit Comment
Columbia Pictures has hired writers Adam Fierro and Glen Mazzaro to pen the sequel to "Hancock," a Will Smith superhero movie that grossed $624 million in worldwide ticket sales last year. Both Smith and director Peter Berg are set to return.

SPOILERS AHEAD:

The original film revealed that Hancock (Smith) was actually an immortal god who became vulnerable only when in the presence of his goddess companion (Charlize Theron).

Berg recently confirmed that the sequel would elaborate on the film's mythology. "There might be another god out there," he said. All the gods supposedly matched up and died, except for Smith and Theron. So what is this third god?

Berg also confirmed that the subplot of Jason Bateman's publicist character should pick up where it left off in "Hancock," where he's starting his charity campaign.

i thought this film was awful.obviously a big rip off from Demon In a Bottle storyline from iron man.how does a "god" not get hurt by anything physically but manages to get drunk? the story sucks and i think a sequel just shouldn't happen.

Will Smith is overrated and this movie was about as entertaining as stabbing thorns in my rectum. Just do another Bad Boys! Surely Martin Lawrence could use the work.

I thought the first half was pretty interesting, then something happened and it ended up being crap.

I don't know what happened though.

I'd rather lick crackers off Rosie O'Donnell's cracked and yellow balloon feet than watch another Hanc*ck film.

why would they make a sequel to the worlds worst will smith movie?! this was the movie that made me decide that will smith was overrated. he had a good run, but after this and then seven pounds he needs to just stop making crappy movies now.

They've got 24, Life and The Shield as credits. All great shows. Unfortunately, the f*ckers at NBC cancelled Life. With these writers, the movie has a chance...if they get a better director who doesn't shake the freaking camera.

i actually enjoyed hanc*ck but i think a sequel would be more like how the men in black sequel turned out.

"if they get a better director who doesn't shake the freaking camera"

That rules out Tony Scott...

Eh the first half I'd say was good then it fell apart. The film lost its balls and decided that maybe a drunk superhero who actually doesn't give two sh*ts about people is a bit raunchy. Then they decided that if they went all ancient god on our ass we'd forget that this doesn't add anything to help the film's lack of integrity at this point. What a waste of two hours.

Hanc*ck went all Samson and Delilah on us.

He's invincible.

Enter the spiteful, angry, lying Biach.

He falls apart.

Fade to black...

Roll credits.

Zzzzzz...

If... IF they kept him the solidtude, God(like) character he was... this movie could have gone places Smallville and Supes Returns were too afraid to go.

Hollywood... lick my nuts!

Can you imagine a film starring Michael J Fox, and directed by Tony Scott? They'd have to sell Dramamine and barf bags next to the Reeses Pieces.

Will Smith kinda had the magnetism to keep this thing moving for the first half but then it shat out. It was like, as soon as Theron put on her eye shadow bad CG arrived and the movie just couldn't settle on a tone, or a pacing, or just anything good.

I did like the God/Goddess pairing aspect, but it was just crap in its context. Actually, it had a lot of good elements (ambiguous bad guy, opaque history, etc) that just failed in context.

You see but Paul Greengrass's use of handheld cinematography in Bourne has a purpose. Many people mimic him now and it always seems completely out of place.

Hooray! More blatant editing due to the strong desire for a PG-13 rating!!

I think Hanc*ck could've been a really great and interesting movie. But once a studio finally got ahold of the script after years of it just floating around, it got butchered. Scratch that, it got massacred.

$624 + Will Smith + Relatively open ending = SEQUEL! why is everyone bitching and moaning? did u not see this coming? There's loadsa sh*t blockbusters every summer, this'll just add to the pile. You never know, they might grow some balls, up the rating, and make him a proper badass, where he can throw the halloween kid up in the air...and not catch him.

I thought Theron's and Smith's characters were the last of their kind... so how cold the mythology expand when the last two gods can't even come within 50 feet of each other... and if more gods are around then Hanc*ck will loose his powers again, so this seems like a bad story all around and also- Who gives a sh*t about Bateman's charity campaign?

Or was it that the two pairs couldn't come near each other or else they will become normal?
