We have a love/hate relationship with Doug Liman’s sci-fi thriller, Jumper. The movie was panned by critics and everyone we know hated it, yet it made a boatload of money at the box office. So for those of you who contributed to its financial success, you should be proud (ashamed) of yourselves because a Jumper sequel is in the works.
“We’re talking about it right now actually,” he 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.”
In the first film he played a young man who “thanks to a genetic hiccup, is gifted with the ability to teleport himself anywhere in an instant.” It sounds like a cool premise but the story was horribly written and there’s only so much Christensen we can take outside of the Star Wars universe.
Do you think they should make a Jumper sequel? Would you pay to see the film?
