It was a box office hit that no one really saw coming, but Dwayne Johnson’s earthquake disaster film San Andreas made almost $500 million worldwide last year. The film received just mixed reviews from critics, but it’s obvious fans around the world enjoyed the movie.
And this means we’re going to get a sequel. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, New Line Cinema and Johnson are working hard to make this sequel happen. They have hired Gavin James and Neil Widener to write the script.
Brad Peyton, the director behind the first movie, is also scheduled to return for the sequel. The report also claims most of the original co-stars will return, including, Alexandra Daddario, Paul Giamatti and Carla Gugino.
Obviously, plot details are being locked away right now; however, the report does hint at a much larger natural disaster event focusing on the legendary Ring of Fire…
“The ring circles the Pacific Ocean with fault lines and volcanoes and, according to scientists, is home to about 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes.”
Don’t expect this sequel to hit a theater near you anytime soon though. Dwayne Johnson is a busy man. It might be a year or two before he has time to film this.
While we wait, you can watch the trailer for the original film below…
