A sequel to “Pulp Movie” has been confirmed to be set for a 2017 release, with “Pulp Fiction: The Movie” and the first film’s sequel, “Porpoise” expected to come out later this year.
Production for “Pulse,” which follows the life of the young woman who’s become the hero of the film, is expected to begin this year with a 2019 release.
It will be the first time since “Pilots” in 2012 that a sequel has been set in motion.
“Pulse” was originally intended to be released in 2018, but Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures, which also owns the rights to the original, pulled the plug on the project in 2018.
The film was eventually greenlit by Warner Bros., and is slated to hit theaters on Nov. 6, 2019.
“We’ve been very excited about ‘Pulse’ since it first came out, and we’re excited to be able to bring it to the screen,” said producer and director Ryan Coogler in a statement.
“It’s a fantastic story, a brilliant screenplay and a tremendous ensemble cast that brings a unique and powerful experience to this intimate story of love and loss, and to the world of love.”
Pulse stars Katee Sackhoff, Jamie Lee Curtis, Anna Kendrick, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Tessa Thompson, James Corden, Olivia Cooke, Riz Ahmed, John Leguizamo, and Dede Gardner.
The movie was directed by David Fincher and features a score by Steven Soderbergh.
