A sequel to Nobody has not yet been approved, but Derek Kolstad, who wrote the original film, is already working on a script for a second film.

Nobody‘, the frenetic action film directed by Bob Odenkirk, which premiered in March, has yet to get the green light for a sequel, but that hasn’t stopped Derek Kolstad from start to work on a possible follow-up. Ilya Naischullerwho directed Nobody, JoBlo said in a recent interview that Kolstad, who served as the original film’s screenwriter, is floating around with ideas for a sequel.

“There are many stories to tell in this world with the character Hutch. I know Derek (Kolstad who wrote ‘Nobody’) has started work on the sequel.” Naishuller told JoBlo. There’s been no official word on a sequel to Nobody, but fans of the film have reason to be optimistic given the critical and commercial success of the original film.

IndieWire’s Eric Kohn praised the film’s action scenes and humor in his March B-grade review. “‘Nobody’ works in fits and starts, but it’s hard to argue with a film that’s so intent on pleasing. Bob Odenkirk’s meta-machismo performance is central to this hyper-stylized action ride like an extended cartoon punchline, much like Keanu Reeves did in three ‘John Wick’ films,” Kohn wrote in his review.

He added: “And ‘Nobody’ essentially functions as a crazy expansion pack to this franchise, with a script by ‘John Wick’ co-writer Derek Kolstad centered around hard-hitting showdowns and shoot-’em-ups, directed by Ilya Naishuller built up is his first earnings since the similar high-octane madness of the ego spectacle “Hardcore Henry”. This kind of clumsy, ass-kicking filmmaking wraps its gory violence in aerial quotes for a breezy 86 minutes, and while it doesn’t exactly linger, there’s plenty of fun in small doses here.”

The film centers on Hutch (Odenkirk), an assassin turned family man who sets off a chain of events that forces him to confront a psychopathic Russian crime boss played by Aleksei Serebryakov. The film also stars Connie Nielsen, RZA, Christopher Lloyd, Gage Munroe, Paisely Cadorath, Colin Salmon and Michael Ironside.

The film was one of Odenkirk’s most action-oriented roles to date. The Better Call Saul star’s recent credits include roles in the 2019 films Long Shot, Dolemite Is My Name, and Little Women.
