Bird Box sequel has been confirmed after Netflix film inspired the author to continue story 'I wanted to get to know Malorie even better.'
Starring Sandra Bullock, the film is based on Josh Malerman's 2014 novelof the same name, which follows Malorie, a woman who is struggling to survive with her two children after most of the world's population is decimated by an unknown force that causes people to take their own lives when they see it.
The success of the Netflix adaptation has spurred Malerman to write a sequel to his original novel. The novel, which takes place eight years after the original story's end, will be titled Malorie, and it's due for release on October 1.
At the end of the movie, I turned to my girl Allison and said, 'I want to know what happens next!' and she’s like, 'Well, you know, you could make that happen', so it really was this warm feeling," he said.
As for where the story will take place, Malerman said the location of the sequel is "similar" to where the characters were left at the end of the first novel.
"They’ve left there," he confirmed. "[It's] similar in that they’re trying to make things work. It’s not like it opens with them in paradise."While Malerman wouldn't give away if Malorie will explain where the monsterscame from, he did say the novel will help us "get to know both Malorie and the creatures better" – and don't expect the book to focus on Boy and Girl, either.
"In the time between Bird Box coming out and the time since I’ve been writing Malorie, I’ve been asked a ton of times: people want to know what happened with Boy and Girl," he said.
"But as much as I care about Boy and Girl, this isn’t their story. The Bird Boxworld is Malorie’s story and I wanted to know more about her. I wanted to get to know her even better." #birdbox#birdboxmovie#waterstones#goodreads#kindle#kindlebooks#foylesbooks#waterstones#thrillerbooks#lovebooks#bookblogger#amazonbooks#bookstagram#bookmarks#thrillerbooks#lovebooks#bookblogger#amazonbooks#bookstagram#bookmarks#crazyaboutbooks#bookblogger#crimefiles#books#kindle#kindlebooks#foylesbooks#bookblogger#crimefiles#books#kindle#kindlebooks#foylesbooks
