Despite their universal lack of box office success, both Universal/Legendary’s Seventh Son and Warner Bros.’ Jupiter Ascending have, today, had sequels announced with release dates set for early 2017. Seventh Son: Mystery of the Gnydr will arrive in US cinemas on January 20, 2017 with Untitled Jupiter Ascending Sequel (which has been confirmed as the film’s official title) following on April 7.
Seventh Son: Mystery of the Gnydr will see Ben Barnes reprise his role as The Sorcerer, with Jeff Bridges expected to make a cameo in flashbacks. Meanwhile, Untitled Jupiter Ascending Sequel will star “a CGI Channing Tatum” and “a plastic doll that looks a bit like Mila Kunis below the neck”. We can’t wait to see these undoubtedly quality films in 2017!
