The Hollywood Reporter said that Stuart Beattie is returning to write and direct the second and third installments of Tomorrow, When the War, the action adventure that earned more than $5 million its first week in Australia.
The sequels will also reunite the original cast and producers. The films, which will be shot back-to-back, have not been officially greenlit, but that is expected to change in the coming weeks.
Based on John Marsden’s novel, Tomorrow, When the War follows the journey of eight high school friends in a remote country town whose lives are suddenly and violently upended by a war that no-one saw coming. Cut off from their families and their friends, these eight extraordinary teenagers must somehow learn to escape, survive and fight back.
The movie stars Lincoln Lewis, Chris Pang, Deniz Akeniz, Caitlin Stasey, Phoebe Tonkin and Ashleigh Cummings. You can watch the trailer for the first film here.
