I rather enjoyed Atomic Blonde with its stylish look, twisty plot and great fight sequences and, while not quite a smash, it did pretty well at the box office, grossing just under $100 million worldwide and doing well on home formats as well. At the time of its release there was talk of a series, and rumours of a sequel have been circulating since. Now we learn that Atomic Blonde 2 is indeed pressing ahead. Star Charlize Theron herself confirmed the news at the San Francisco International Film Festival, where she the subject of a tribute and onstage interview, saying that:
“We’re working on a sequel”.
She didn’t elaborate further, so we have no idea if director David Leitch will return or anybody else for that matter, but it’s good to have this confirmed….for now.
