Critics and audiences alike were captivated by the surprise hit "Chronicle", which served as a platform to further launch the careers of director Josh Trank, writer Max Landis and stars Dane DeHaan and Michael B. Jordan. It then came as no surprise that a "Chronicle 2" was in the works, but as development continued, the cast of players changed and both Trank and Landis were no longer attached to the project.

Before his departure, Landis had already mapped out where he wanted the story to go next. In a recent interview, he revealed that the next adventure would have shed some light on exactly what the source was that gave Matt (Alex Russell), Steve (Michael B. Jordan) and Andrew (Dane DeHaan) their superpowers.

Known as Massive Organic Geoelectric Objects (Mogo), Landis said the following, "(They are) a race of crystalline organisms that communicate and propel themselves through radio waves, and turn higher life forms into telekinetic drones."

He also explained how the sequel script and direction, which was rejected by Fox, was going to be much darker and would follow, "Two embittered souls as antiheroes trying to catch the survivor of the first film."
