Brad Bird has begun writing The Incredibles 2
Brad Bird's second live-action film, TOMORROWLAND, hits theaters in just under 2 months' time and despite having directed one of the best installments in the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE series with MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL, everyone's been wanting to know if he'll revisit his other spy universe, THE INCREDIBLES. Disney has already announced that they'll be going ahead with a sequel regardless, but the big question is if Bird will be involved and if so, in what capacity. Fortunately for us, at the very least, he'll be writing the story. Speaking with NPR on their Ask Me Another program, Bird shed a little light on his progress.
Brad Bird discussing the progress of THE INCREDIBLES 2:
It’s percolating. I mean, I’m just starting to write it, so we’ll see what happens.
While Pixar has always been hit or miss with me, I remember seeing THE INCREDIBLES for the first time and thinking what a great action film it was, animated or no. There's a reason why people still want to see a sequel after all these years. It's still up in the air whether or not Bird will return to direct, but him writing the story is a step in the right direction.
