Suffice to say that we are not ready to discover the film on our screens but the project is well and truly launched! Which in itself is already very good news. Hopefully a new pandemic rebound will not delay the production of this second part, which is already eagerly awaited. As for the casting, Charlize Theron will obviously put on Andy’s costume again.
