Nobody was more shocked than me when Gerard Butler’s latest disaster flick, Greenland, turned out to be pretty damned good. In fact, in my review I sorta hoped it would turn into a franchise. Well, my prayers have been answered. Get ready for more planet-destroying action in Greenland: Migration!
Deadline reports Butler will reunite with director Ric Roman Waugh and writer Chris Sparling for Greenland: Migration. Also returning is Morena Baccarin as Butler’s wife. The sequel will find them dealing with the aftermath of the interstellar comet that nearly became an extinction-level event. Now the Garrity family must leave the comfort of their Greenland bunker on a dangerous journey across the frozen wasteland of Europe to find a new home.
Filming will begin next year. Greenland suffered numerous delays due to the pandemic, before opening as a VOD exclusive last December. It turned out to be pretty successful, earning $52M on a budget of $35M.
