Ryan Coogler, the brain behind the Black Panther phantom signs a deal to write and direct the film’s sequel.
Although it was almost certain that a sequel will surface, given the Black Panther’s immense box office success.
However, until now, details about the sequel remained scarce.
Meanwhile, according to Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Coogler has “quietly” closed a deal to create the sequel for the movie.
Ryan is expected to write the movie next year with plans to begin production in late 2019 or 2020.
The Hollywood Reporter also adds that Coogler took a more considered and unconventional approach to closing his deal, stating:
Typically, a filmmaker is more than willing to quickly sign on for a follow-up and a studio is eager to snap up a key piece of talent in the lead-up to or right after a successful opening.
But Coogler’s camp shook off the peer pressure and took its time in making a deal, which occurred under the radar some time ago.
