During the Cannes Film Festival opening day, StudioCanal announced a handful of new projects earlier this morning, and while Paddington 3 received the most press, there were a couple of other projects that is sure to create some buzz. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that the studio is developing sequels to Cold Pursuit and Gunpowder Milkshake.
Cold Pursuit was an action thriller armed with a healthy dose of dark humour that hit theaters in 2019, also known as the Before Times. Neeson played a vengeful snowplow driver who starts killing the members of a drug cartel after the murder of his son.
As for Gunpowder Milkshake, the film is set to debut on Netflix next week and it seems like there is faith in the upcoming film to warrant a sequel announcement.
The official synopsis for Gunpowder Milkshake:
Sam (Karen Gillan) was only 12 years old when her mother Scarlet (Lena Headey), an elite assassin, was forced to abandon her. Sam was raised by The Firm, the ruthless crime syndicate her mother worked for. Now, 15 years later, Sam has followed in her mother’s footsteps and grown into a fierce hit-woman. She uses her “talents” to clean up The Firm’s most dangerous messes. She’s as efficient as she is loyal. But when a high-risk job goes wrong, Sam must choose between serving The Firm and protecting the life of an innocent 8-year-old girl – Emily (Chloe Coleman). With a target on her back, Sam has only one chance to survive: Reunite with her mother and her lethal associates, The Librarians (Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, and Carla Gugino). These three generations of women must now learn to trust each other, stand up to The Firm and their army of henchmen, and raise hell against those who could take everything from them.
Gunpowder Milkshake will debut on Netflix in the U.S. on July 14th.
