Bright, their urban fantasy film, was a perfect example of blockbuster filmmaking, with a reported budget of $100 million. Will Smith, a well-known actor, was cast in the film. Bright was panned by many critics when it first came out, but it has since become the most watched Netflix original in history.
Bright was written by Max Landis and directed by David Ayer, who also directed Suicide Squad. It is set in a world where humans coexist with magical beings such as orcs and elves. Smith portrays an LAPD officer who is forced to work with the country’s first Orc cop (Joel Edgerton).
Unsurprisingly, the couple’s first real job places them in the midst of a lot of magic. Dueling factions are squabbling over a powerful wand that some believe holds the key to the “Dark Lord’s” return.
As you might expect, Ayer and his friends are surrounded by mystical madness. Bright is based on a Lethal Weapon-style cop movie and The Lord of the Rings. Many people seemed to enjoy the combination, and Netflix had everything it needed to make a sequel. There’s a good chance that sequel will happen now, more than ever before. This is all we know about Netflix’s Bright 2 right now:
Who Will Appear in Bright 2?
Will Smith and Joel Edgerton, two of Bright’s stars, may be open to returning to the streets of Los Angeles for another gritty magical-realism film. The exact date of the film’s release is still unknown.
According to Collider, both stars have already agreed to collaborate again on Bright 2. When the film is released again, it’s unclear who else will return to the magical world.
As a result, it’s clear that many key characters from Bright will not return in any sequels. One of them is Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus). Bright’s fearsome elf-assassin was frequently the most intriguing aspect of the story.
The fact that Leilah is unable to return for Bright 2 does not preclude her from doing so in the future. We’re dealing with a world where magic exists and the possibility of resurrection exists. As a result, we wouldn’t be surprised if the character caused more havoc in the next film.
The actors who played FBI Agents Kandomere and Montehugh in the first film, Edgar Ramirez and Happy Anderson, are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel. This is because by the end of the first film, their “Magic Task Force” has a magical artefact.
This indicates that they will most likely return. Lucy Fry’s role as Tikka will undoubtedly be reprised in Bright 2. However, we have no idea what kind of role she will play.
When Will Bright 2 Be Available On Netflix?
After a few years since Netflix first aired the film Bright, it’s clear that the studio is taking its time with the sequel. This could be due to the fact that Will Smith and Joel Edgerton have a lot of work ahead of them. Max Landis, who wrote Bright based on a completely new concept, could also be to blame.
Netflix ultimately decided to proceed with Bright 2 without the world’s creator. The new film will be co-written by David Ayer and Evan Spiliotopoulos.
Netflix appears to be ready to move forward with T.S. Newlin’s adaptation of that film’s screenplay. Louis Letterier, the director of Now You See Me and The Incredible Hulk, has also been hired by Netflix to direct Bright 2. Netflix appears to be eager to get the film made and available on its platform as soon as possible.
Because of production delays in Hollywood and the impact on actors’ work schedules, it’s also likely that Bright 2 won’t be in production for a long time. If Bright was a success, you can bet that the sequel will be as well.
