However, Ayer stated that a sequel to Netflix’s Bright is “still in development.”
We’re working on it so hopefully we’ll be able to mount that up soon. It’s a great opportunity for all of us to explore the world more. I think people felt like there was a lot of doorways to explore. People were like, ‘Tell us about the dragon. Tell us about this, the history.’ So it’s a very rich world and I think we’re going to drill down some more.
Vlad the Impaler
Seven warriors are recruited to assassinate Vlad Tepes in the trailer for Vlad the Impaler, which includes a battle scene with no less than four exploding haystacks.
