Clooney Says He, Brad Pitt & Director Jon Watts Are Already Talking About A Sequel

A Plan B project, Pitt’s producing company, the film also stars Amy Ryan, Austin Abrams, and Poorna Jagannathan. Larkin Seiple, the cinematographer behind “Swiss Army Man” and the Oscar-winning “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” will shoot the film.

And apparently, the trio are already discussing a sequel.

“We’re already talking about a sequel for this film I did with Brad and Jon Watts,” Clooney told Deadline this week promoting his latest film, “The Boys In The Boat.” “It was a great shoot, and Jon is an extraordinarily talented guy who’s also really joyful. He loves what he does. We had a blast doing it, and we’ve seen it. It’s an off-the-charts great film, and it’s fun to work with Brad again. We had a really good time.”

“We met with David Zaslav, and he was like, ‘look, I think every movie we do will go to streaming, but we want it released first because there’s an actual benefit in having your movie out, be successful, be promoted,’” he explained. “And it actually changes how many people watch it in streaming.

“Brad and I made the deal to do that movie where we gave money back to make sure that we had a theatrical release,” he continued. “At the time, that wasn’t as popular an opinion as it has become in the last year and a half now. I think Netflix is considering buying theaters even, I’m not sure. But you look at ‘Oppenheimer’ and ‘Barbie,’ and establishing them as massive box office hits makes them massive hits on streaming as well.”
