So Fox liked Max Landis’ Chronicle 2 script after all


Remember when Max Landis’ father talked about how Fox wasn’t digging Max’s draft of Chronicle 2? His father said that the draft was heading to a direction that the studio didn’t like. Landis wanted to go forward with the story, while the studio wanted a repeat. Well, it turns out his father should keep quiet about things he’s not a part of.

Max Landis has shed some light on Chronicle 2, and it turns out that everybody at Fox just wants to make an awesome movie that can match the first. It’s a slow process, but for now we know the studio liked his script. The only that the studio was worried about was the tone of the second movie.

“Chronicle 2 is in an interesting place right now. It’s moving along. There was this whole announcement that they wanted to just do the same thing again because my father said that. My father is not involved in Chronicle 2. He doesn’t know the process. It was not his place to say that. The truth is when you have a movie that was as successful as Chronicle was, it’s not as quick of a process. There are a lot more voices coming in and saying ‘This is what the sequel should be’ because there’s a bigger expectation and a bigger fear of failure. And that’s really what’s going on with Chronicle 2. Josh (Trank) is directing Fantastic Four. I’m doing a hundred other movies. Chronicle 2 has become this question of ‘How do we all make a movie that we all respect?’. And that’s true to what Chronicle is. There’s no one at the studio who wants to make a bad movie. They all want to make a good movie just as much as I do. We’re not fighting. The report came out that they didn’t like my script. They liked my script. It’s just a really dark script. The question is more of ‘How do we all compromise to get something we want?’ And that’s an incredibly slow process.”

Landis is pretty confident that the movie will happen, and that it will be a pretty damn good movie. How pretty damn gooe? About “60-75% sure that it will be a pretty damn good movie.”
