If you’re dying to find out more about Nobody 2, you’re not alone – here’s what we know about Bob Odenkirk’s sequel, including any release date updates.

Ilya Naishuller burst into the action scene with 2015’s Hardcore Henry, but it was 2021’s Nobody that truly excited fans of the genre.

Working with John Wick stunt team 87/Eleven and franchise co-director David Leitch, Nobody unleashed a deadly Bob Odenkirk that audiences had never seen before.

Is there a Nobody 2 release date?

Nobody 2 doesn’t have a release date – but at the earliest, it’ll be out in 2025.

Speaking to Collider, producer Kelly McCormick earlier revealed plans for Nobody 2 to enter production in 2023. “We hope to make it next year, so fingers crossed,” she said.

“So our theory is you don’t need to make a good sequel just to make a sequel. We need to make a great sequel. And so it’s about making sure that we get it right. And if we do, I think there’s a lot of hope that we can go next year.”

The SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes will have impeded any further development last year, but according to Connie Nielsen, it’s definitely in the works.

According to David Leitch, the movie is in the early stages of development, with Nobody 2 still going through the scriptwriting process.

Leitch revealed to Collider that he “had a blast, the actors had a blast, the studio loved the results, and it’s happening.”

“I think all of us want to go back and play in that universe, and we want to see Bob bring that character to life again,” Leitch added.

Leitch also told The Hollywood Reporter: “I think that movie is going to happen. The will is there from Bob, the studio, the producers, Derek Kolstad and ourselves. So we’re in development on it, like hard-core development on it, and I would place your bet on it.”

Odenkirk is also set to star in Normal, a brand-new action thriller written by Leitch and directed by Ben Wheatley, so it’s unclear when production on Nobody 2 will begin.

Nobody 2 cast: Who will be in it?

Casting details for Nobody 2 have yet to be finalized, though it is expected that Better Call Saul’s Bob Odenkirk will return to reprise his role as Hutch Mansell. Connie Nielsen will also return as his wife Becca.

It is possible that Christopher Lloyd and RZA will also come back for Nobody 2, playing Hutch’s father and brother, David and Harry Mansell.

With the Russian Mob likely hot on Hutch’s trail following the bloody conclusion of the 2021 sleeper hit, we’re sure to see someone fill the villain spot left behind by Aleksei Serebryakov.

Nobody 2 plot: What will it be about?

As Nobody 2 begins to pick up the pace behind the scenes, we’re still awaiting official plot details. However, before David Leitch confirmed Nobody 2 was going ahead, Bob Odenkirk revealed to Empire in February that a story had already taken shape.

Odenkirk explained that “Universal has been very upbeat and welcoming. Derek [Kolstad] and I have talked story. It’s not a sure thing yet, but we’re working on it. I think the signs point to yes.”

John Wick fans will recognize the name Derek Kolstad, as the screenwriter wrote the first three chapters of the Keanu Reeves-led franchise.

Will Nobody 2 crossover with John Wick?

Both Nobody and the John Wick franchise are produced by David Leitch, utilizing his expert stunt team, 87/Eleven. The similarities between the two franchises are noticeable, as Hutch and Wick operate in shady worlds of assassination fuelled by mysterious currency, ethics and leadership.

Though Hutch’s world is a tad more grounded than the gloriously chaotic heights of Wick, it hasn’t stopped the filmmakers and fans pondering whether a crossover could happen.

Nobody director Ilya Naishuller told IndieWire in March 2021: “I love when the people ask, ‘Is it the same universe?”

“I’m like, ‘Alright, I can’t say anything. But what you could do is look at which studio made which movie and then think about the reality of doing a crossover,” continued Naishuller.

The director added that “everything’s possible. Stranger things have definitely happened.”
