Sequels to SALT and BLACK DYNAMITE in the Works

It appears (though far from definitively) that we could see sequels for both the Angelina Jolie spy thriller Salt and the blaxploitation spoof Black Dynamite in the near future.  According to 24 Frames, all the creatives behind Salt are all up for round two.  Writer Kurt Wimmer has a few ideas for the continued adventures of Evelyn Salt.  Director Phillip Noyce is on board, though Salt 2 may need to contend with the love story Dirt Music (starring Russell Crowe) and fellow spy thriller Wenceslas Square for a spot on his schedule.  Perhaps most importantly, Jolie reportedly said she was “keen” on the idea.  (Jolie, of course, has her own scheduling issues with Tim Burton’s Maleficent and the Kay Scarpetta franchise on the docket.)  The word on the street is that Sony is waiting to see how Salt performs internationally before it moves forward with a sequel — the film crossed $100 million domestic after four weeks in release.

While promoting the UK release of Black Dynamite, writer/star Michael Jai White revealed that he has started work on a sequel.  Read what he had to say after the jump.

“Oh, absolutely, I’ve had the idea for Black Dynamite 2 for quite a while now, and it’s gonna start where Black Dynamite left off — there’s lots of things we didn’t get a chance to do in the first one.  You know how Black Dynamite just grows in ridiculousness?  Well, this will be a fitting sequel.”

Black Dynamite was never the type of film that would warrant a mega-wide release, White is encouraged by the devoted fans who have embraced the film,

“It’s got this cult thing going on for sure.  There are theatres in the US that have committed to showing it for an entire year and there are people showing up to screenings in 70s regalia, quoting lines from the movie, which makes us quite proud.  It feels really great to be called Black Dynamite, because that’s something I created.”
