One of 2012’s earliest (and most surprising) hits was Safe House, the CIA thriller starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. Not one to ignore a lucrative property, Universal has reportedly commissioned yet another Safe House film from the original’s writer, David Guggenheim.
While it is not certain, due to certain spoiler-y plot points, whether the next Safe House film will be a prequel or a sequel, Hollywood Reporter has said that Ryan Reynolds will almost certainly be involved. Denzel Washington is less likely to return, but Universal is angling to get him back on board in some capacity as well.
Released in February and directed by Daniel Espinosa, Safe House has so far made over $200 million.
