Hvis du var fan af I am Legend fra 2007, vil du nok blive ked af at høre, at alle planer om en fortsættelse er skrinlagt.
I am Legend filmen, som er baseret på en bog af samme navn skrevet af Richard Matheson i 1954, blev et stort hit i biograferne, og der blev længe talt om at lave endnu en film.
Men manuskriptforfatter/producer Akiva Goldsman udtaler nu følgende:
“Oh no no, [there was] never a movie. I mean, we wrote a prequel [and] a sequel,” explained Goldsman. “We had a really interesting prequel, which was the first outbreak of the virus, during a Thanksgiving Day parade, which was awesome. We did a really interesting prequel that [took place] later. Which was right after the first… really right when the population of humans became pretty decimated. And it was this sort of trek to Washington. Which included a dark seeker elephant that had broken out of the zoo.”
“Then we did a sequel, that started with Neville again — and you realized that he was cloned. We’ve tried every which way. In fact, if you’re available, you could be in the next movie. It will never happen, but we really enjoyed trying to make it happen. Oh we tried. There were scripts. We really tried.”
Så vi skal vist ikke forvente at se nogen fortsættelse eller prequel – men i Hollywood skal man jo aldrig sige aldrig…
