A sequel to the 2009 action-thriller movie “Law Abiding Citizen” is now in development.
The project is developed by The Matrix franchise producers Village Roadshow Pictures in partnership with Rivulet Media.
Original screenwriters Lucas Foster and Kurt Wimmer will return for the project, while Gerard Butler will return with his G-Base partner Alan Siegel as producers.
“Law Abiding Citizen “followed Butler as the titular character Clyde Shelton, a once happy family man until his wife and daughter are killed during a home invasion.
When assistant district attorney Nick Rice, played by Jamie Foxx, makes a plea bargain with the killers to keep his 99% conviction rate afloat, Clyde blames him for his family’s deaths and sets off on a path to destroy the entire judicial system as a form of personal justice.
Plot and casting details for the sequel are still being kept under wraps.
