Last year, Better Call Saul actor Bob Odenkirk starred in the action-packed Nobody as a simple family man who is revealed to be a whole lot more after his daughter’s favorite kitty cat bracelet goes missing. The movie was helmed by Ilya Naishuller (Hardcore Henry), written by Derek Kolstad (John Wick), and produced by some big names, including Deadpool 2 and Atomic Blonde director, David Leitch. Recently, Odenkirk teased that he thinks a sequel will happen, and a new post from Leitch and 87North Productions practically confirms Nobody 2 is in the works.
“Can’t wait to create more chaos with this crazy crew on #NOBODY2,” the post reads. While no official announcements have been made about Nobody 2, this caption is pretty promising. It’s also interesting that the production company shared the post with Leitch instead of Naishuller, which makes us wonder if Leitch will be taking over directorial duties on the possible sequel. In addition to teasing a sequel, the post also includes some fun behind-the-scenes photos of Odenkirk, Christopher Lloyd, RZA, and more. You can check it out below:
Last year, Odenkirk spoke with ComicBook.com ahead of Nobody‘s release and revealed the movie was partially inspired by Atomic Blonde.
“I thought a lot about Atomic Blonde actually and Charlize [Theron] was so superb in that film,” Odenkirk defined. “Our film has a particular sort of character DNA. I believe with that movie in that, you understand, she performed an motion hero who was amazingly expert but in addition felt the ache when she obtained damage. That nice sequence within the center the place she’s preventing the man within the condominium. And by the best way, the particular person she fights is Daniel Bernhardt, perhaps one of the best stunt actor on the earth and he is the one that skilled me for No one. However you possibly can see the ache of their eyes. They’re getting damage as they combat and so they’re getting fatigued and that is type of one thing that is been lacking from motion movies for a decade or two, which is that the hero actually suffers. And I wished to current that in our film, No one.”
“I wished to play a man who accrues that harm and who actually is struggling by way of the ache that he is feeling because it grows by way of the film,” Odenkirk added. “The factor that is completely different is, I hope I play an motion hero who was very unsure. The good second that Ilya Naishuller orchestrated within the bus the place I say, ‘I am gonna f-ck you up.’ If I performed it proper, I performed a glance in my eyes that’s not so certain that he is gonna succeed. However he is type of declaring it as an intention.”
