Chronicle

The month of January is usually a dumping ground for theaters. But almost everyone was blindsided with how good Max LandisChronicle was. Since the film brought in a nice amount of cash for Fox, the studio commissioned a sequel to be produced. Landis has been hard at work writing the script. But despite his efforts, it seems that Fox isn’t too happy with what he has turned in.

In a recent interview, John Landis (Max’s father) gave some rather troubling news about the status of Chronicle 2.

Here’s what John said:

“[Max] wrote a sequel, and it’s amazing, and the studio read it and said, ‘We want Chronicle again!’ And he said, ‘No, this is the sequel, it’s the evolution,’ and they said ‘No, we want that movie again!’ So it’s difficult, we’re dealing with a difficult business.’

It’s really no surprise that a studio, like Fox, would be butting heads with a filmmaker. It’s even less surprising that a studio would want more of the same thing rather than an “evolution” of the story. But it’s great to hear that Landis has written something that would be a fresh take on his creation. It would be interesting to take a look at the script and see what kind of changes Landis has made.

But like most studios, Fox would rather play it safe, instead of taking risks. Let’s just hope that Fox and Landis can find some sort of middle ground, otherwise I see this property heading over to a new writer.
