It seems hard to believe that the sequel to the highest grossing picture for Brad Pitt didn’t have a writer. That was true until Variety broke the news that Academy Award winning writer Steven Knight (Locke, Eastern Promises) was tapped to pen the sequel. J.A. Bayona (The Impossible) is already in the director’s chair with Pitt returning as producer and star.
It appears as if Pitt liked what he saw in a romantic WW2 thriller that Knight has written. That project hasn’t been officially announced yet. Now Knight will write the sequel to the film based Max Brooks’ novel.
No release date for the film has been given.
