“Bright” Sequel Gets A New Writer

“Beauty and the Beast” scribe Evan Spiliotopoulos has been tapped to pen the sequel to Netflix’s action fantasy feature “Bright” – replacing original scribe Max Landis.

Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are expected to reprise their roles as Daryl Ward and Nick Jakoby in the film which also sees the return of director David Ayer. Landis and Ayer have reportedly parted ways over creative differences.

“Bright” premiered on the streaming service on December 22nd and became the highest-viewed Netflix film ever in its first week of release – and one of the biggest originals (including sequels/additional seasons) Netflix has ever launched.

Set in an alternate present-day, the original followed a human and Orc cop who embark on a routine patrol night that will ultimately alter the future as their world knows it.
