Washington (ANI): Plans to make sequel to superhero comedy Hancock has been put on hold to allow actor Will Smith to spend more time with his family, according to director Peter Berg. Berg had recently confirmed that Smith and his co-star Charlize Theron would both reprise their roles in a follow-up to the hit 2008 movie.
However, the plans have been deferred as Smith takes break from movies to enjoy life with his wife, Jada, and help his son, Jayden, in his a starring role in the new Karate Kid picture. Berg is adamant Hancock 2 will get made, but it may take longer than expected.
"It''s being written now and it''s an issue of everybody involved in Hancock. There are so many cooks in that particular kitchen that it''s so busy and Will has kind of taken time off to be with his kids and his kids are now making all kinds of films," Contactmusic quoted Berg as telling The Latino Review. “There are so many people involved in that, from Will to his (business) partner James Lassiter to Michael Mann, myself and to get us all in the same room just like this where we can all talk and then agree on anything, you''ve never met a group of people that have a harder time agreeing on anything.
"It''s like the Israeli peace process times a thousand how tough it is to resolve. I think it''ll happen though. We just have to kind of get in the same room for some consistency," he added
