If it goes through, Gibson will step in for Richard Donner, who passed away earlier this year and had been developing a sequel with Gibson. After Donning's demise, Gibson thought that it was right to continue developing the film as a tribute to his friend.

No other information about the film is currently available.

Meanwhile, Gibson is busy with a string of films coming up. He will star in the upcoming John Wick prequel series The Continental, apart from also starring in the fantasy adventure film, Boys of Summer.
