Back in 2020, Ric Roman Waugh released a disaster thriller film titled Greenland, starring Gerard Butler, Morena Baccarin, David Denman, and Hope Davis, with a script from Chris Sparling.
The movie proved to be a success from critics although it didn’t manage to sweep up the sales at the box office, earning $52.3 million on a budget of $35 million.
Despite the fact that the film didn’t perform too well commercially, a sequel is officially underway, titled Greenland: Migration, and it has just been purchased by STX Films for a whopping total of $75 million.
The original film was released on streaming platforms instead of theatres due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it’s expected that the sequel may hit movie theatres when it’s released. Ric Roman Waugh is returning to direct the follow-up with screenwriter Chris Sparling also returning to write the script.
The sequel is a continuation of the original story and sees the Garrity family as they leave the safety of their Greenland bunker and attempt to traverse the decimated frozen wasteland of Europe to find a new home.
