I will admit to not exactly being Battle L.A’s biggest fan, in fact, I felt hugely let down by the film considering how hyped I was to see it. However, it performed well enough at the box office to warrant a sequel, and on a similar budget too.
Director Jonathan Liebesman recently spoke to Collider, who asked him about the sequel to Battle L.A. Obviously Liebesman couldn’t say much, but here is what he did say:
“We’ve just started the script now so that’s where we are. We have just begun the script. Just because I don’t want the studio to get pissed at me, I’m not sure what I can and can’t say about it. But what’s exciting is it sounds like the budget will be as big. They’re really going to make it an event.”
So, like it or not, a sequel is on its way. No other details have been released, but we will certainly keep you informed of any further developments.
