WATCH: Netflix gives Bright 2 the official go-ahead but loses first movie’s writer

January 3rd, 2018 by Marc Comments

Despite being a VERY divisive movie, Netflix’s Bright, starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton and directed by David Ayer, has found an audience among it’s foul reviews.

And Netflix are so confident in that audience that they have already put plans in motion for Bright 2 and they are fully expecting stars Smith and Edgerton to return along with Ayer.

However, it seems that writer Max Landis will not be returning, with the sequel penned instead by Ayer for the second instalment.

There’s not word yet on when we’ll see the sequel.

I honestly haven’t watched Bright yet but I certainly plan on as people whose opinions i trust love and hate it in equal amounts… consider my curiously sparked.

Have you seen it? Let us know what you thought.

Bright takes place in a fictional Los Angeles filled with fairies, elves and magic wands while acting as an allegory for real-world race relations. It follows a veteran cop (Smith) who reluctantly takes on a new partner, an Orc played by Edgerton, and has to protect a magical wand from law enforcement, criminals and an array of supernatural characters.

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….
