Battleship director Peter Berg has revealed that he has plans to do a Battleship sequel, as long as the first Battleship movie is not a complete failure. Peter also admitted that the whole Battleship movie idea came from himself.
When asked by Den of Geek if they planned to do a potential Battleship sequel, Berg explained, “We do. But I won’t talk about that until we see how this plays. But yes, we have ideas.”
He then added, I pretty much put the story together. It was my idea to do it. I ended up with the basic idea of bringing aliens into the film, and creating this character called Hopper, and set it up with the writers – a couple of writers came in and out. But I knew that I wanted to make one of these films.”
Peter continued, “I wanted to make a big, fun summer movie, first and foremost. I didn’t want to make a dark, realistic war film. I’m getting ready to go and make a dark, realistic war film, I understand what those are, but I wanted this to be much different.”
Battleship is released in the UK on April 11 and in the US on May 18.
