Female Led ‘Chronicle’ Sequel In The Works At 20th Century Studios

Producer John Davis recently gave an interview with Forbes and revealed they were working on a female-led sequel to the hit film, Chronicle.

You can what he said in the interview below:

 “Chronicle was literally the best return on investment, any of my movies ever made. Chronicle we did for $12 million, and it grossed $126.64 million worldwide. Then it had a huge afterlife in syndication. It’s one of the most financially successful movies in my stable. We’re working on Chronicle 2 right now, and I think it’s going to be great. We’re working on it at Fox (20th Century Studios). It’s going to give us a chance to tell the story in a different way. We’re going to tell it from the female point of view. It will have been ten years since the event happened in Seattle, and a lot of it’s going to deal with fake news and real news and cover-ups. More interestingly, it’s the next generation getting these powers that are corruptive. These are young women just finishing college, they are empowered, and this is their journey. I mean, what a new and interesting story you can tell there.

Chronicle was released in 2012 and became a huge hit.  The film had a budget of $12 million and went on to gross $126.64 million.  The film tells the story of three high school friends who stumble upon a discovery that empowers them with superhuman powers. What begins as fun and games soon turns into a dark nightmare as they lose control over themselves.

The film stars Alex Russel, Dane DeHaan, Michael B. Jordan, Michael Kelly, and Ashley Hinshaw. It was directed by Josh Trank (Fantastic Four) and written by writer Max Landis (Bright). The film was produced by James Dodson, Greig Buckle, John Davis and Adam Schroeder.

Chronicle is available to stream now on Star on Disney+ in several countries including Australia, Canada and the UK.
