Though he is not sure about the possible 'Race to Witch Mountain' sequel, one of the actors has stated the movie's storyline is 'set up for a sequel'.
After hitting box office chart when it was released in March, one of the cast members thinks "Race to Witch Mountain" deserves to get a sequel treatment. In a press junket at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles to promote his upcoming film "Planet 51", Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock, the depicter of Jack Bruno in the Walt Disney's adventure movie, has talked about the future of the film.
"Great success breeds a lot of things, including sequels. The storyline was set up for a sequel, so we'll see," The Rock said. However, he cannot speak further about the possible second "Race to Witch Mountain" film as the actor himself is "not quite too sure" about it. "I'm not ruling it out. I just can't speak to it because I don't know. I haven't spoken to any of the guys up at Disney about it," he added.
"Race to Witch Mountain" is a story about a hard luck Las Vegas cab driver Jack Bruno, whose life is thrown into chaos when apparent runaway teenagers AnnaSophia Robb's Sara and Alexander Ludwig's Seth jump into his taxi. He soon realizes his two fares are children with exceptional paranormal power whom he must protect as they elude a collection of ruthless enemies.
After the movie hit U.S. theaters on March 13, it topped North American box office chart with $24.4 million in ticket sales from its first week, making it the first Disney film in 2009 to open at #1. The movie went over by collecting $106.4 worldwide as its total lifetime gross.
