While promoting Freaky Deaky, Michael Jai White spoke about a few of his upcoming projects. When asked about the return of Black Dynamite, he confirmed that they “hope to shoot Black Dynamite 2 at the end of the year.” This sequel will join the upcoming animated series in expanding the adventures of the blaxploitation character.
Though he wouldn’t give any plot details, White did hint that they might update the time period to the 80s, if they want to change things up a bit. It might not be a bad idea, since it would prevent the sequel from feeling like it was making the same joke twice.
White also shared that he’s preparing to direct a romantic comedy “early next year.” I didn’t see that coming, but hey, why not?[Via Indiewire]
