HOLLYWOOD – See the first poster and synopsis for Netflix’s Bird Box 2.
Bird Box was the most watched Netflix film according to their own figures and Bird Box 2 was immediately rushed into production. Gravity star Sandra Bullock will once more star in the tale of aliens taking over the Earth. She spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec about the story:
The end of Bird Box was open. We knew that we had more story to tell, but we didn’t know how popular the first one would be. Soon as Netflix said do you want to do another one? we already had the script ready to go.
The New Story
Just as in the first one we have aliens who have invaded the Earth. In A Quiet Place it was to do with the aliens’ sense of hearing. In our film it was to do with what you saw, so it was about sight. Now we want to extend it. So what happens is the next breed of aliens land and this time they smell really bad. So only people who have no sense of smell survive or those who fortuitously put clothes pegs on their noses.
The new film will be directed by Susanne Bier from a screenplay written by Eric Heisserer and Josh Malerman.
