Peter Berg says Hancock 2 won't be coming anytime soon.

No Hancock 2 in the near future.

Here is what "Hancock" director Peter Berg has to say about the planned sequel:

"There are so many cooks in that particular kitchen that are so busy and Will's kind of taken time off to be with his kids and his kids are now making all kinds of films and there are so many people involved in that from Will to his partner James Lassiter to Akiva [Goldsmith] to Michael Man and myself," Berg says. "To get us all in the same room where we can talk and then agree on anything? You'll never meet a group of people who will have a harder time agreeing on anything. It's like the Israeli peace process times a thousand in how tough it is for us all. But I think it will happen, we just all have to get in the same room with some consistency."

Peter Berg said that he does not see Hancock to be his next project after his other project "Battleship" next year. He is planning to do "Lone Survivor" after "Battleship".

He also plans to make a sequel for Dwayne Johnson's the Rundown.

"I love 'The Rundown.' I don't know if the audience was quite ready to accept Dwayne [at the time]. We had a certain amount of resistance," Berg says. "They screwed around with our release date, but the film still performed well."



I didn't particularly love "Hancock," but it was watchable and at times entertaining.

Director Peter Berg ("Battleship"), recalls the time in which he had beef with Vince Gilligan, because the screenwriter left during the production of Hancock to start work on his little television show, called Breaking Bad. You might have heard of it.
Peter Berg states that once he finishes up obligations for Battleship and Lone Survivor and Will Smith does likewise for After Earth and MIB III, cameras will roll for a Hancock sequel.
One of the surprise hits of summer 2008 was the Will Smith superhero film Hancock, which the critics didn't exactly embrace, but, based on box office, the audience did. Now director Peter Berg provides an exclusive short update on the potential sequel.
