While moviegoers are looking forward to riding David Leitch’s bullet train, the director recently shared information about a possible sequel to The Nobody. Released in 2021, The Nobody featured Bob Odenkirk as a contract killer who is fired from his job after a group of petty thieves break into his country house. The original film offers John Wick’s level of violence, plenty of witty comedic moments, and Odenkirk as a killing machine. What’s not to enjoy here? The post-credits scene in the film suggested that Hutch Mansell (Odenkirk) was not done kicking ass yet, and fans have been calling for a sequel to The Nobody ever since.
Luckily, the good folks at Collider spoke to Leitch about the possibility of a sequel to Nobody. He gave many interesting details about how the project is progressing, right down to confirming that the script is currently in the writing phase. First, Leitch said that everyone involved in making the film is excited to be back. “Oh, I think everyone is very excited about this,” he told Collider. “All participants say: “Full speed ahead”. We are in the process of writing the script and I think we had a lot of fun making it. Kelly and I were thrilled, the actors were thrilled, the studio loved the results, and it’s happening. I mean, I think it’s happening as fast as we can.”
When asked if he thought a sequel to The Nobody would be completed, Leitch replied, “Yes, I do,” he assured Collider. “Yes, because there are certain journeys that you go on that are undeniable experiences for the people involved. And this was one of them. And I think we all want to go back and play in that universe, and we want to see Bob bring this character to life again.”
According to Leitch, ideas for a sequel to The Nobody came less than a month after the original film’s release. While a sequel isn’t officially on anyone’s calendar yet, it looks like it’s only a matter of time before an official announcement of a sequel is made.
