LEIGH WHANNELL DISCUSSES UPGRADE 2
Recently when addressing a question from Fandom about the possibility of Upgrade II, director/screenwriter Leigh Whannell responded, “We’ll see.”
Furthering this quote with Fandom he explained, “A sequel is a champagne porblem created by the success of a movie. So Hollywood economics dictates whether there’s going to be a sequel, and Upgrade… I wouldn’t exactly call it a monster hit. It’s call it a cult hit, and cult hits, when they look at the books of cult hits, they’re like ‘Nyah, sequel’. So we’ll see. I loved to do it with a bit more money.”
Jason Blum has acknowledged excitement in pursuing a sequel in the past and only time will tell if a sequel becomes reality.
