The follow up to Chronicle, the low budget found footage style sci-fi adventure that raked in an impressive $126 million at the global box office, has added a new writer in the shape of Jack Stanley following the departure of Max Landis, who wrote the original, after creative differences with Fox.
While Stanley is far from a big name, he's been shopping several highly regarded scripts around Hollywood in recent times, including Sweetheart and Silver, the latter of which is a good old-fashioned werewolf flick.
Landis' original idea for the sequel featured an all new cast of characters and was only loosely tied in to the events of the first movie, which is probably why Fox wasn't so keen on pursuing that particular angle. Now, though, it looks as though Stanley will follow the story of Matt, the main character last time around, although the scope of the movie remains unknown.
However it turns out, we're very much looking forward to another adventure in a unique world, and if it can live up to the expectations created by the first movie it should be worth keeping an eye out for.
