A sequel to Murder Mystery sequel is in the works at Netflix.
Written by James Vanderbilt and directed by Kyle Newacheck, the comedy debuted online earlier this year. It follows an NYC cop (Ádám Sandler), who finally takes his wife (Jennifer Aniston) on a long-promised European trip. A chance meeting on the flight gets them invited to an intimate family gathering on the Super Yacht of elderly billionaire Malcolm Quince (Luke Evans). When Quince is murdered, hough, they become the prime suspects in a modern-day whodunit.
The film broke records at the start of the summer, racking up the biggest opening weekend ever for a Netflix Film: 30.8 million accounts watched the movie in its first three days, including 13.3 million in the USA and 17.5 million across the rest of the world.
“Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler are on entertaining form in this predictable but fun comedy thriller,” we wrote in our review. “Don’t be surprised when Netflix orders a sequel; do be surprised that you’d look forward to it.”
Four months on and The Hollywood Reporter reports that James Vanderbilt is in negotiations to return and pen a script for Murder Mystery 2. Stay tuned for more as it literally develops.
