Press day for the upcoming Black Dynamite animated series was yesterday in LA, and Jasmin was present for the event; her full report will be posted soon enough, so watch out for it!
In the meantime, I thought I'd share this nugget of info that star Michael Jai White revealed to Crave Online.
Specifically, White said that Black Dynamite was apparently always meant to be a franchise – specifically, a trilogy of films with the same cast, and that they are developing ideas for the next 2 films.
“What Byron [Minns] and I always intended is we always thought from the beginning of a trilogy, Black Dynamite being one of a trilogy that would occur in that time period that starred essentially the same cast… We have some really funny ideas of other movies that are in that real vibrant time period. We’re trying to decide which would be the next step to do in that trilogy.”
As we already know, there has been lots of talk about a sequel to the 2009 cult hit, but nothing concrete yet.
I believe our last post on this included a quote from White saying that he hoped to start shooting the sequel by the end of this year, but details on plot/story for #2 are sparse.
And definitely no word on what the potential threequel in the trilogy.
Although White did add:
“There’s some other stuff to do with Black Dynamite… Some of these other things we’re really excited about developing.”
Your guess is as good as mine.
