The re-release of ‘Frost/Nixon’ will get an Oscar-winning director, but that may not be enough for a sequel.
Disney’s Oscar-nominated director Josh Trank has been approached to helm the sequel, according to Deadline.
Trank was offered the project as part of a script he wrote for Disney’s ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ and is reportedly in discussions with Universal Pictures, Fox and Warner Bros. The sequel would likely be Trank’s third film since ‘Frodo’, a project he has previously helmed, with ‘The Lego Movie’ and the ‘Justice League’ sequel.
The ‘Gravity’ director has had success in recent years with a number of his movies and has directed some of his biggest hits.
Trank is currently in talks to direct ‘The Fate of the Furious,’ ‘Pineapple Express’ and his latest feature, ‘Jurassic World.’
Disney is not releasing any official comment on Trank as of press time.
The film is scheduled to open in theaters on Nov. 17.
‘Fruitvale Station’ is a 2013 Oscar-winner.
