Joseph Kosinski has given a welcome update on the status of his forthcoming follow-up to
, explaining that he’ll be taking a look at the first draft of the script in the next couple of weeks.
“I think I’m two weeks away from getting the draft,” explains Kosinski. “This is a story we’ve been working on since 2009, so that’s four years now. I’m really excited about the idea that we have for it. I think it delivers on the promise that both
movies have made.”
“It opens the movie up, in a way that I think is going to give it a much broader appeal. Whereas
really, ultimately, in the end, catered most to
fans, this idea broadens it some more, in really exciting ways. But, it’s all about the script and making sure that that story is compelling enough to get all of us back together.”
“Those movies are hard to make,” he continues. “It’s a two-and-a-half to three-year journey. So, to go back in there and go back to the Grid, it’s going to have to be a pretty spectacular script. We’ve got a great writer on it, so we’ll see.”
Meanwhile, Kosinski went on to confirm that while the project is currently being referred to as
, it will have a proper title unique to itself.
“It has a working title, yeah,” reveals the direcdtor. “
will be our code name. We have an idea, but nothing is set in stone yet. We have some exciting ideas.”
