It seems that Netflix is working on Bird Box 2. This, according to writer Josh Malerman, who says the sequel is in development. Malerman wrote the novel that the hit movie was based on and, as it just so happens, he has a sequel coming out later this month. That could provide a roadmap for the streaming service to deliver a follow-up.
Josh Malerman’s sequel novel Malorie, named for the lead character, played by Sandra Bullock in the movie, is set to hit shelves on July 21. During a recent interview, Malerman was asked about Bird Box 2. While the author couldn’t say much, he did confirm that it is in the works. Here’s what Malerman had to say about it.
“I can’t say much, but I can say that it is in development. Sometimes it’s weird, all this secrecy, but I’m game.”
Netflix is historically stingy when it comes to revealing streaming figures. They did, however, boast that Bird Box was watched by 26 million people in its first week. It remains one of the most popular original movies they have ever produced. Though it did face some controversy for sparking the “Bird Box challenge” as well as using footage of a real train crash, which was eventually removed. Speaking about Malorie, Josh Malerman said that the movie didn’t alter his approach to writing the follow-up. Only now he pictures Sandra Bullock.
