Project X 2 in development
With Project X already in profit for Warner Bros, the studio is already working on Project X 2…
The last weekend at the US box office may have been dominated by the staggering numbers that The Lorax brought in, but there were actually two films that outperformed expectations. The other was found footage party movie, Project X, which cost Warner Bros around $12m to make, and brought in $21m in the US alone on its opening weekend.
If your head immediately suggests that a sequel may be thus on the way, then it’d be right. The headline to this article might have given the game away too, of course.
Michael Bacall, who co-wrote the first Project X, has been hired by Warner Bros to pen a treatment for a second movie. He was, according to The Hollywood Reporter, working on the treatment before Project X opened, and once he’s finished that, a decision will be made as to whether to press ahead with a second film.
Given the money that the first film has brought in to date, though, you can pretty much take the green light as a given.
