The sequel to the acclaimed 2006 American drama film, ATL directed by music video director Chris Robinson which had featured hip-hop artist T.I., starred alongside Antwan Andre Patton, a.k.a Big Boi of the hip hop group OutKast, Evan Ross, Jackie Long, Lauren London, and Mykelti Williamson is now in production.
Director Chris Robinson first mentioned the possibility of a sequel in 2013 and now it’s eventually happening. Rapper T.I. shared a few scene photos with fellow actors on set whilst confirming that it is “officially going down”.
However, whilst the news inspires quite a buzz among fans and movie enthusiasts, many are left wondering why it took ten years for a sequel to be made and there are skeptics who ask the question: Will it be worth the watch?
Considering the decades in between the first one and the remake, we do hope the story and overall direction will come out just as good as the initial or better.
But well, what do you think?
