BIRD BOX Writer Confirms A Movie Sequel Is In Development
Honestly, with the way the world is right now if you told me to wear a blindfold at all times I would do it gladly. I'd rather NOT see all the bullshit.
But let's be honest if BIRD BOX was a real thing we'd probably just be fighting over whether or not we should wear the blindfolds on our faces on Facebook while everything exploded around us.
Anyway, let us escape into fiction which is much less scarier than real life at the moment. There's a sequel to Sandra Bullock's BIRD BOX coming out apparently!
Speaking with Inverse.com BIRD BOX writer Josh Malerman confirmed not only would his written sequel MALORIE hit shelves July 21st, but a movie was in development as well.
"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."
Will Sandra Bullock be back? Even Malerman doesn't know, saying:
"I was also aware (while writing MALORIE) that there was a possibility that Sandra Bullock wouldn't be playing Malorie. When you first start writing novels, especially now, how do you not see them cinematically? We grew up on movies." He continued however saying "I didn't have Sandra Bullock in mind when I wrote the first one."
Well, who the fuck would Josh? Can't blame you there. Not many people have the stones to be like "Sandra fuckin' Bullock is going to star in the movie about my book and it's going to be a ginormous hit on Netflix and be all the rage worldwide for like two weeks". Well done, Sir.
Despite how much you liked or disliked the film this dude got it done. Hell, we even did our own BIRD BOX Michael Myers and Dr Loomis parody.
