Hayden Christensen was recently dishing about the Jumper sequel with The Winnipeg Sun. We get the following scoop from our friends at the moviehole:
“We’re talking about it,” the 27-year-old Canadian actor says, adding that he’d definitely be on board. “I know that they’re having those conversations, I hear about them". “It was set up to become that — a trilogy — if it did well,” says Christiansen. “And I think they’re happy with how it did so they want to make another one. But I don’t think they’re rushing to get into production.”
The first film was so blatantly set up for a sequel that the story suffered for it. Jumper had a lot of stuff to like, but it kept killing itself with lame scenes and an annoying love interest. I certainly think a sequel will happen, but after the first - I am not that interested in checking it out.
If however, they are able to learn from the mistakes of the first film and bring us a kick ass action film, I may change my tune, and eat my words.
