Will we see a sequel?
Pitt told reporters that there’s a possibility a trilogy:
“There is enough in the book to pick up if this [film] works,” the actor said before director Marc Foster added, “We approached it with the thought that this film must work. And if it is a success, we will see and [maybe] set it up as a trilogy.”
Following the Sunday premiere, English rock band Muse, which contributed a song to the film’s soundtrack, performed live at Horse Guards Parade Ground, St. James’ Park.
