Get ready, because the hype behind the ‘Bird Box‘ universe might only just be getting started.
The film, which was based on a novel of the same name by author Josh Malerman, was a huge hit on Netflix. It sparked tons of social media interaction, including some not-so-safe challenges. Despite that, Malerman recently made an exciting revelation in an interview with Esquire.
He is actually working on a sequel novel to ‘Bird Box,’ which he has titled ‘Malorie.’ While Malerman acknowledges fans want to know what’s next for both ‘Boy’ and ‘Girl,’ the ‘Bird Box‘ universe is Malorie’s story:
“People want to know what happened with Boy and Girl. But as much as I care about Boy and Girl, this isn’t their story. The Bird Box world is Malorie’s story, and I wanted to know more about her.
“I wanted to get to know her even better. 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.”
Malerman also teased that, “We get to know both Malorie and the creatures better.”
‘Malorie‘ is currently scheduled for a October 1, 2019 release.
