Greenland movie sequel sees Gerard Butler reprising his role as structural engineer John Garrity along with Morena Baccarin playing Allison Garrity. The movie is all set to return with producers and financier Anton, Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Pictures, along with Gerard Butler and Alan Siegel’s G-BASE as producers. The sequel will be written by Greenland writer Chris Sparling and directed by Ric Roman Waugh.
The movie is titled “Greenland: Migration,” and is expected to schedule in 2022.
The Sequel continues the story of the Garrity family
Greenland part one was an American disaster thriller movie. It showed the Garrity family surviving a near-extinction level event after an interstellar comet hit the earth. The movie embarks on the journey of John Garrity (Gerard Butler), Allison (Morena Baccarin), and their son, Nathan, who try and survive the apocalypse while comet fragments vapourize cities all around the state.
In the Greenland sequel, we will see the Garrity family leaving their safe Greenland bunker and trekking across a frozen landscape in order to search for a new home.
The first part of the Greenland movie released in December 2020. Although the movie was scheduled to be premiered in June, due to the COVID-19 pandemic it got delayed to October and then to December eventually. STX Entertainment announced that the movie was going to be present on SVOD followed by online platforms (HBO Max and Amazon Prime).
The movie grossed $52 million worldwide and had a fairly positive critic review too.
“Greenland Spoke To Humanity”, says director Waugh
Greenland sequel director Ric Roman Waugh also talked about the first part of the movie and said, “‘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. The irony is we made the first film pre-Covid and watched many situations come to reality. I’m really looking forward to the next chapter of The Garritys post the first extinction event.”
CAA Media Finance is co-representing U.S. rights of the Greenland sequel. Anton is fully frontal in the finance parts and also in controlling all the rights of the movie. Alan Siegel Entertainment and CAA are representing Gerard Butler. Whereas Seven Summits Management and UTA are representing Morena Baccarin.
Greenland prequel consisted of the cast Scott Glenn, Hope Davis, David Denman, Roger Dale Floyd, and Andrew Bachelor along with Butler and Baccarin.
