A Sequel to the Netflix super hit film ‘Bird Box’ is in development at Netflix, according to Josh Malerman, author of the book ‘Bird Box.’
In a recent interview with Inverse, Josh Malerman revealed that the movie is already in works but the details of it are being kept secret.
"I can't say much, but I can say that it is in development, Sometimes it’s weird, all this secrecy, but I'm game."
Malerman was in this interview to promote his new book which is sequel to the ‘Bird Box’ and it is titled as ‘Malorie’ which by the way, was the main character in Bird Box. In the 2018's Netflix film, Malorie was played by Sandra Bullock.
According to Malerman, the new novel picks up exactly where the original book/movie left off, means at the school for the blind.
"Malorie opens at the school for the blind, which is where the movie ends, then it jumps a few years later, and it really takes off 10 years after that."
‘Bird Box’ is set in a nightmarish new reality where an unseen malevolent force purges the global population, the single mother, Malorie, and her two children, embark on a life-threatening quest to find the last protected haven on Earth. However, in this dangerous quest, one's eyesight is the real enemy--and as the defenceless blindfolded protector summons up the courage to follow a faint shred of hope hidden deep in a refuge down the river--darkness may be the only thing that can save them.
Released on Netflix over the 2018 winter holidays with Sandra Bullock in the lead role and a cast that included John Malkovich, Sarah Paulson, Lil Rel Howery, and the rapper Machine Gun Kelly, Bird Box was a monster hit. Almost 26 million people watched it in its first week, according to Netflix.
