Director Joss Whedon, whose Avengers films have been hailed as classics, says he was moved by the popularity of the film and by the desire for a sequel to be filmed.
“It just happened to be right at the time,” he said.
“I don’t think there’s ever been a film that has been this successful and this successful in the history of cinema, that I think has ever been made with such a huge budget.”
CannonFodder will be released in 2019, with a sequel planned for 2021.
“We just shot the first one and it just happened that it would be right in time,” Whedon said.
It was initially supposed to be called Cannon Fodder 2 but the studio decided to name it Cannon Fodger 2 after the popular cartoon character.
The sequel was initially due to be released before the 2020 Sydney Olympics, but the movie has now been delayed to 2020.
“If I was going to be on the set with [director] Joss, I’d say, ‘I know that you’ve made this and you know it’s going to happen,'” Whedon said of the sequel.
“But I just said, ‘You can do it, it’s not going to take you too long’.”
Cannonfodder is expected to gross more than $20 million in its opening weekend.ABC NewsTopics:film,film-movies,nsw,nhl,wales,melbourne-3000,vic,newcastle-2300First posted October 23, 2019 12:41:47Contact Alex Smith
