Jumper 2 (2014) – Will the new Jumper Movie ever happen?

Flying Brian Banana Hammock February 6, 2012 68

Jumper 2 is the sequel to the hit 2008 film Jumper, starring Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson. Jumpers have the ability to teleport anywhere in the world that they can visualize. They are hunted by an members of a secret organization called Paladins.

[ Why not join our Jumper 2 facebook page? ] Jumper made about $80 million in the U.S. which didn’t cover the $85 million budget, but the international markets brought in another $150 million, so a sequel is possible. Star Hayden Christensen has stated that he would come back, and director Doug Liman said he had a lot of ideas for a sequel, so it may happen. No one is rushing into the sequel, though, so it may be a long wait before Jumper 2. Oh, and Liman thinks it could be a trilogy, so then we have Jumper 3: Jumpin’.

Jumper 2 Script

No details yet, although Liman said that the nature of the powers seen in Jumper might enable off world stories, government assassin stories, and time travel stories. Why not all three? Why isn’t this plot made into a porno by now?

Movie Release Date

Summer 2014 at the earliest, this movie has been delayed a bit due to budget concerns. The good news is Hayden Christensen has nothing better to do but wait, since his movie career has dried up.

Who’s In It?

Hayden Christensen has said he’d come back, and Rachel Bilson and Samuel L. Jackson might also reappear, although at present there is not firm casting. lol, what else does Hayden Christensen have to do?

What’s Good About It?

You know what? I liked Jumper. Yeah. I said it. Credibility destroyed. It had cool special effects, Rachel Bilson is hot, and Jamie Bell did a really good job as the other Jumper. Liman is a talented director, and if a better script is turned in for the second film, I’m gonna like it too.

What’s Bad About It?

Hayden Christensen’s unbelievable charisma turns some viewers off. He just emotes so well. He was so good Star Wars that people just can’t believe he’s anything but Darth Vader. I know I can’t. Wait. Is unbelievable charisma just another way of saying black hole of charisma? No? Oh… This might be why the sequel won’t be good.

Our Clever Prediction

One of the biggest problems with the first Jumper was that it was obviously set up for a sequel. If they dismiss the trilogy idea and just tell a complete story, and Hayden Christensen dies in the first act, then the film could end up awesome. Maybe Rachel Bilson could Jump out of her clothes. Haha. Get it? Jump? Man, cocaine rocks. (Note: I’m not on cocaine, but I believe my mother was while pregnant with me.)

    I cannot believed the faith you guys have in this series. I’m not all that sure the second one’s even getting made. The first was kinda successful at best, so I don’t see it getting fast tracked.

    Oh course, if the studio frequents this particular preview, and they clearly do, then they’ll see the public is clamoring for more Jumper action.

    (btw, studio heads? I have an amazing script for you. Well, not really, but I want to meet Jessica Biel. I’d be willing to sell you my soul. I’d even pretend that Hayden Christensen is the next Deniro, or Shatner. Probably Shatner)
