Chronicle was writer Max Landis’ first foray into a feature-length film. The writer already sold Amnesty, which is expected be directed by Ron Howard, to Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment. With a few more projects that could potentially be sold, 20th Century Fox is sure to keep him busy after hiring him to write a sequel to his breakout debut.
Deadline reports that Landis is slated to write a sequel to the box office hit, which isn’t doing too bad with critics, either. The first film ends with Matt (Alex Russell) in Tibet contemplating what happened over the course of the film. It is unclear whether a sequel will follow the plot of the original, or if it will center on a new group of teens who find out they have special powers.
