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 2015 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 enjoyed the first movie. I’d love to see a sequel. Or Griffin’s Story movie. I love the premesis of the series. Anywhere, anytime. I wouldn’t mind if they strayed too far from the books, of which i read them all. Bring on a sequel/ prequel. I’ll go see it.

    Well, when I first saw Jumper, I watched it on YouTube so it was kind of hard to get a good review for it. I personally thought that Hayden did a good job, and I’ve seen Revenge of the Sith and I can understand why you can’t get him being “evil” out of your heads but you can’t see him as Darth Vader forever. I thought his acting in Jumper was good, the movie was alright, I felt there was so much that could have been reworked. I just saw it again on tv this time and it was better than what I thought but there could be some better moments. Better writing. Jamie Bell is superb so I have nothing to say. I didn’t like white haired Samuel either but what can you do? He’s great. Rachel… her character annoyed me a bit but I guess she was important lol.

    I saw Takers recently as well, I thought Hayden did great. I personally fell more in love with him after that movie so I’m kind of a big fan of him now. I also saw MOST of Shattered Glass (curteosy of school) and he did good in that as well. I’m looking forward to keeping up with him and what else he does. If there is a Jumper 2 GOOD they need to tie up loose ends and maybe the storyline will be more developed.

    It’ll never be as good as it could have been. Interested in seeing the second one though. Having seen the first one I read the books and was disappointed in the lack of storyline the first movie had. Hopefully they will do better the next go around.

    Griffin needs to be in the second movie, he is amazing- as…well, he is a bit of a jerk. His accent is amazing though, Jamie Bell is a great actor.

      @nisiah,

      Thank God for the accent. SO hot.

      Did you know he’s going to be Tin Tin? That’s a Steven Speilberg film and he’s the LEAD.

      SO hot.

      We should, like, TOTALLY discuss.

      Like, I don’t think he was a jerk, he was just having a hard time, y’know? He was So hot though.

      I mean, right?
