In the interview Silver says: “I need to think of a way to put them in an equal situation. But when I make a sequel I like to replicate the experience, not replicate the movie. I’m not going to put them on a plane again, of course. He has a touch of Sherlock Holmes in that he has to figure out what’s going on and then he has to figure out how to solve it. I think that character’s a great character and we’ll try to figure something else to do. I haven’t thought about it yet. But I have to, sooner or later”.
I really enjoyed Non-Stop and if a sequel comes along then I’d definitely check it out; Neeson is always worth watching and as long as we get a decent story then I say bring it on.
The original movie had a budget of $50 Million and an international gross of $198,742,160 so it’s not surprising that a sequel is inevitable.
