Being one of the summer blockbuster movies, "Hancock" will reportedly be getting a sequel treatment. When talking to Joblo while promoting his upcoming movie "Seven Pounds", the action drama's star Will Smith has come up with a confirmation that "Hancock 2" is "definitely" happening.
Despite insisting that another "Hancock" movie will be seen in the future, the 40-year-old didn't give direct answer when asked whether he will reprise his role as the sarcastic and misunderstood superhero. Instead, he stated that "there are a lot of unexplored characters in the Hancock universe that would be ripe for a sequel."
Opened in U.S. theaters on July 2, "Hancock" has debuted atop the North American box office with $62.6 million over the July 4 three-day weekend. The Peter Berg-directed movie, which is starred also by Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman, has since pulled in $227.9 million from the North American sales and $624.4 million worldwide.
