Nobody sequel confirmed to be in its scripting process by David Leitch


While movie fans eagerly await a ride aboard David Leitch’s Bullet Train, the director recently offered information about the possibility of a Nobody sequel. Released in 2021, Nobody stars Bob Odenkirk as an assassin ripped from retirement after a group of petty thieves break into his suburban home. The original film offers John Wick levels of violence, plenty of clever comedy, and Odenkirk as a human killing machine. What’s not to enjoy? A post-credits sequence in the film suggested that Hutch Mansell (Odenkirk) wasn’t done kicking ass, and fans have been calling for a Nobody sequel ever since.

Thankfully, the fine folks over at Collider spoke with Leitch about the likelihood of a Nobody sequel. He offered many exciting details about how the project is coming along, going so far as to confirm that a script is currently in the writing stage. First, Leitch expressed that everyone involved in making the film is excited to return. “Oh, I think everyone’s really excited about it,” he told Collider. “Everyone involved is like, ‘Full steam ahead.’ We are in the script process, and I think we had so much fun making that. Kelly and I had a blast, the actors had a blast, the studio loved the results, and it’s happening. I mean, I think it’s happening as fast as we can make it happen.”

When asked if he thinks a Nobody sequel will progress to completion, Leitch replied, “Yes, I do,” he reassured Collider. “I do, because there are these certain journeys that you go on, and they’re just undeniable experiences for the people involved. And that was one of them. And I think all of us want to go back and play in that universe, and we want to see Bob bring that character to life again.”

According to Leitch, ideas for a Nobody sequel were passed around less than a month after the original film’s theatrical release. While the sequel isn’t officially on anyone’s calendar yet, it sounds like it’s only a matter of time before an official announcement about the follow-up happens.

Are you excited about the prospect of a Nobody sequel? Where do you think the story should go? Will Hutch’s wife Becca (Connie Nielsen) play a more prominent role in upcoming events? I certainly hope so. We’ll let you know more as Nobody stealthily sneaks toward another film.
