Washington (ANI): Will Smith and Charlize Theron are set to reprise their roles in the sequel of Columbia Pictures' Hancock. Director Peter Berg is set to helm the boozy super-hero film and has revealed that both stars including Jason Bateman will be back in the next flick.
"Everybody's going to come back for a sequel," Variety quoted him as saying. He is presently working with Adam Fierro (24, Dexter) and Glen Mazzara (The Shield) to write the script. Smith and Theron will once again play immortal gods, who tend to lose their powers when in each other's presence.
The film will see them pairing up to deal with a third entity. Though the storyline is being kept a secret, it is expected the plot will explore the 3,000-year-old world they're from, which was only referred to in the first film.
