Although in Netflix is bringing new feature films on a regular basis recently, Bright was the streaming network’s first attempt at producing original movies for its subscribers. While Bright was initially released in 2017, the streaming network has been quiet about a possible sequel. If you are a fan of the original, then you will be glad to know that director David Ayer recently talked about the possible sequel of the movie.
David Ayer has been pretty busy over last couple of years due to his work on Suicide Squad and Fury. Recently, during his appearance at a Television Critics Association panel, he said, “Still in development. We’re working on it so hopefully we’ll be able to mount that up soon.”
This isn’t the first time we are hearing about the movie. Back in 2018, we learned that Evan Spiliotopoulos is responsible for writing the script for the sequel. And now, Ayer said, “It’s a great opportunity for all of us to explore the world more. I think people felt like there was a lot of doorways to explore. People were like, ‘Tell us about the dragon. Tell us about this, the history.’ So it’s a very rich world and I think we’re going to drill down some more.”
Bright, starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton, tells a story set in an alternate reality where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been living together. After two police officers discover something, it changes the entire future. Although the movie had a budget of $90 million, it paid off as Netflix decided to produce a sequel to the movie. This is surprising considering the movie was critically panned by critics upon its release.
