Prior to it’s release, and therefore the wide-spanned total trounce, 20th Century Fox had let it be known that they hoped “Jumper” be their next big franchise. The sequel talk went away once the film – a snooze-worthy science-fiction yarn about a time-traveling wonder-kid, played by Hayden Christensen – hit theaters…. where it was to lucky to stay a fortnight.
Seems FOX’s Tom Rothman hasn’t given up on the series though (no surprise I guess, considering his two big hopefuls of 2010 – “Percy Jackson” and “The A-Team” performed well below expectations; studio needs a franchise – and quick!).
In an interview with MTV, star Hayden Christensen said talks are now underway regarding the once-mooted sequel.
“We’re talking about it right now actually,” Christensen, who currently stars in “Takers”, said.
Where could the story go? “Hopefully somewhere a little darker. I think there’s a lot you can do with it. It was sort of set up in a way it’s gonna be mother hunting son and possibly even maybe sister hunting brother. We’re talking about it, trying to figure it out.”
Kristen Stewart and Diane Lane played Christensen’s on-screen half-sister and mother, respectively, in the original. And assumingly, they’d be asked back – while I can imagine Lane would probably be quite happy to do it, since she’s not inundated with offers right now, Stewart’s star has risen considerably since the original film; might take more than a few bucks to entice the “Twilight” star back.
Can only imagine Samuel L.Jackson (who played the villain first time around), being such a big of money and nonsense, would have already agreed to it.
