Director and Writer Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, collectively known as The Daniels, have reportedly debunked the ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ sequel rumors. The Daniels started penning down the concept of this movie around 2016 while their research on the multiverse started in 2010. This science-fiction action comedy was well acclaimed by critics, grossing over $91 million worldwide and surpassed 2018’s Hereditary as A24’s highest-grossing film of all time.
The A24’s genre-bending comedy film will be available on platforms such as Apple TV and Prime Video on June 7 which will be released in 4k UHD and Blu-ray next month. In addition to that, Apple users will get an extra eight minutes of unseen bloopers regarding the film.
The Daniels Teasing About ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ Sequel
In an interview with Newsweek, The Daniels shared how they are still exploring the film when they were asked about their upcoming project whether it might be a sequel or an original project, “We’re doing both to answer your question,” Kwan said. “We will see what happens. We’ll see what the universe greenlights first, but we’re actively exploring all of it.”
He even shared how they removed a ‘lot of stuff’ from the original projects that might play a significant role in their future concepts, “We’re developing projects, both things that feel very different, because we’ve moved on as creative people just to exercise other parts of our skill sets, but at the same time, there’s a lot of stuff that we had to cut from this movie, a lot of concepts and ideas and characters that we really want to continue exploring,” Kwan said.
The Daniels Hinted At The Idea of ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ Sequel
In an interview with Edgar Wright for Sight and Sound(a monthly film magazine published by the British Film Institute (BFI)), the former asked, “a lot of parents are currently being radicalized by social media.” to which the directors jumped in and revealed one of their ideas that might land into the sequel.
“Actually, if we ever were to do a sequel to this movie, it would be about Evelyn getting radicalized,” Kwan answered. “And then Joy would have to go out and save her mom.”
