Chris Brown alerted his fans via Twitter this week about a possible prequel to the movie “Takers.”
He wrote, “S/O 2 every1 watching Takers … talked studio into writing a PREQUEL..”
However, there is no real backbone to Brown’s announcement. The producer of the original film, Will Packer, neither confirmed nor denied the next movie.
He said in a follow-up tweet, “guess it’s time 2 go 2 work again *puts down margarita *.”
This isn’t the first time talk about a prequel came up. Last summer producer and co-star T.I., Brown and actor Michael Ealy talked about the possibility before the film premiered.
Aug. 27, 2010 was the movie’s release date and it did well, making more than $20 million during opening weekend and grossed triple that overall. Given the film’s popularity, a prequel is definitely worth looking into.
