The 2020 disaster film ‘Greenland’ follows a family trying to survive during an environmental disaster and escape to the titular country. The movie was a surprise hit, making over $50 million at the box office despite being hampered by the global pandemic. It came as no surprise when it was announced that a sequel was in the works.
Variety reports that ‘Greenland: Migration’ has been announced, with most of the principal film cast and crew returning to work on the movie.
Thunder Road Pictures will handle production with Ric Roman Waugh returning to direct and Chris Sparling returning to pen the script.
Morena Baccarin is reprising her role as Allison Garrity with star Gerard Butler returning to both produce and reprise his character John Garrity.
“‘Greenland’ spoke to our humanity in the middle of a global catastrophic event, highlighting what people are capable of doing to one another, both good and bad, when it’s life or death,” Waugh told Variety.
The plot will follow the Garrity family, “who survive a near-extinction level event when an interstellar comet hits Earth, must leave the safety of the Greenland bunker and embark on a perilous journey across the decimated frozen wasteland of Europe to find a new home.”
Butler claimed that he was a “control freak” as a producer for the first film, according to the Pennsylvania News Today.
“As an actor, when you come, you beg for a role, and you’re lucky to get it, and you’re in a position where a movie is suddenly made because you’re involved… Notice that you are in,” he said. “If so, you would say, ’I want to make it, I want some control, I want to help shape this movie,’ although it’s not a studio movie like ‘Gods of Egypt’ or ‘Geostorm.’ All other movies are in an independent world.”
Butler explained, “I get the opportunity to develop, get involved in the script, and choose a director. It’s more responsible, but you’re more involved in the process, and I love it.”
