The sequel film to the action thriller “Greenland” will be produced by producer and financier Anton, Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Pictures, and Gerard Butler and Alan Siegel’s G-BASE. The main filmmaking crew returns, with Ric Roman Waugh directing from a story by Chris Sparling (“Lakewood”), who also wrote “Greenland.” Butler reprises his role as structural engineer John Garrity, alongside Allison Garrity, played by Morena Baccarin (“Deadpool,” “Homeland”).
In the sequel, the Garrity family, who escape a near-extinction catastrophe when an interstellar comet collides with Earth, must leave the safety of their Greenland bunker and go on a treacherous trip across Europe’s shattered icy wasteland in search of a new home.
Thunder Road’s Iwanyk and Brendon Boyea, G-Butler BASE’s and Siegel, and Anton’s Sébastien Raybaud and John Zois produced “Greenland: Migration.” Anton is the sole financier and owner of the rights to the picture; CAA Media Finance is co-representing the United States. The start of principal photography is set for 2022.
The first film, “Greenland,” bucked global box office projections by opening to strong box office figures despite international lockdowns and restricted theatre capacity last summer. In over 26 countries, including Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and Russia, the picture debuted at the top of the box office. Following STX’s theatrical release in the United States and internationally, the picture was released digitally on SVOD, followed by an exclusive run on HBO Max in the United States. At a premium rental price, the picture topped the rental features VOD list on both Apple and Google Play.
“‘Greenland’ appealed to our humanity in the midst of a worldwide catastrophe, showcasing what people are capable of doing to one another, both good and terrible, when life or death is at stake,” Waugh said.
