Peter Berg: ‘I want Will Smith to return as Hancock’

June 29th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Is Will Smith set to return in what, in my opinion, is one of his best roles?

Director Peter Berg has been talking to MTV about the future of the drunken superhero Hancock.
“Will Smith is up for any challenge, and he’s definitely up for discussing it. Whether or not that all comes out and equals us actually doing it is never known, but it’s something that we’ve talked about.”
While this all sounds a little vague, Berg did confirm it’s something he wants to do: “We kicked some ideas around. I think we all would like to do it, it’s just a question of getting everybody free at the same time. I think it’s not just Will, but the producers and the studio. We all loved doing ‘Hancock.’ If the stars align in the right direction, I think it’s something that could happen.”

We love the idea of Hancock returning, the mythology the fisrt movie set up was inspired and the cast were on top form. If they can get them all back then count us in…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
