The biggest action star in the world jumping around on huge buildings as he rescues innocent civilians from bad guys – you better believe there is going to be a sequel to Skyscraper starring the Rock! We talked to a few of our sources in Hollywood and asked them what to expect and now we can report what they’ve said. Trust us: if you liked the first movie, you’re gonna love the second Skyscraper!

Will There Be a Skyscraper 2?
Some of my greatest memories in life are from a trip or two to Hong KongI was in awe of the steel and glass that’s around the city. That made up the city. That was the city. It was a jungle with buildings for trees. The architecture of every skyscraper was more unique than the one before it. From the Bank of China building overlooking the beautiful harbor I had made Hong Kong one of the wealthiest cities in the world for the past hundred years to shopping malls that were six stories high located next to outdoor markets that sold trinkets to the tourists.
No, Nic Cage of National Treasure 3 fame wont be appearing. Sorry.
Skyscraper 2 RUMORS
I thought The Dark Knight would forever be the best representation of Hong Kong in western cinema but then The Rock came along and made Skyscraper. It’s The Rock doing what he does best: saving the day, rescuing the girl in an exotic location showing his charisma talent and bravery all set against the backdrop of the world’s most beautiful skyline. I cannot wait for the second film in the series and I know that they are going to knock it out of the park.
Sadly for me, I suspect that they will not be returning to Hong Kong. My guess is they do something in either Tokyo, Shanghai, or maybe even Chicago. Chicago being the birth of the modern skyscraper in making some of the worlds greatest architecture, it would be a magnificent backdrop of its own for a movie. Tokyo would offer a similar feel to Hong Kong as would Shanghai. Both of those would be excellent locations but they will be somewhat redundant. I could see them still doing part of the movie in each city with Chicago being the main event. Imagine the rock swinging off of Hancock Center or the former sears tower or the Wrigley building for the Sun-Times building or Trump Tower or the water Tower Place. It would be awesome!
Plus: he can eat pizza.
Adam Sandler should finish up Grown Ups 3 so he can be here and make quips too. Will Smith is doingHancock 2 otherwise he’d be here too. Get jiggy with THAT!
This isn’t Dracula Untold Sequel, a film needing a delicate hand at the helm: we’re talking jumping off tall buildings and finding an excuse to do it again. Still, let’s see Vince Russo, of WWF fame, come in and mess this up. They can have an arc about poop!

Should you see Skyscraper 2?
Hell yeah. The first one was awesome and much better than sequels likeDredd 2. Personally, I can’t wait. Can NOT wait.
Skyscraper 2 Box Office Predictions
Zombieland 2 will not succeed. Oh. Wait. Wrong movie. Yeah this will be HUGE. Trump like YYYYYYUGE. $700M worldwide level big. The Rock is money!
Final Thoughts on Skyscraper 2
Jeremy Renner was almost cast but instead they decided to use Rocky because someone in Hollywood wants to make money. Hollywood types are smart like that.
I just want more glamorous shots of Hong Kong in mega HD IMAX and all that. Do it for the kids (like me), Rocky!
