The Walking Dead's Mazzara is Not Writing Hancock 2

Despite what it says on his IMDb page, The Walking Dead executive producer Glen Mazzara is not writing a script for the planned Will Smith superhero sequel Hancock 2.

The producer, who has written a number of TV episodes for series like Nash Bridges, The Shield and Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, seemed poised to make the jump to writing his first feature film, but according to Mazzara, his involvement with the project ended long ago.

"No. I worked on an outline 2 years ago," Mazzara told a fan when asked about whether he was still writing the movie, which was announced shortly after the first Hancock but hasn't yet nailed down a final screenplay, a cast or a release date.

Peter Berg, who directed the first Hancock as well as movies like Friday Night Lights and Battleship, is still reported to be attached to the sequel.

A lack of any progress on the film hasn't stopped Berg and star Will Smith from talking about the movie plenty, always asserting that it's still on track to happen.
