“Get Ready”: “ATL 2” Is Officially Happening As T.I. And Cast Share First Photos From The Set
“I’m New New cause I always rock the new, new sh*t.”
Yes, I know ATL pretty well because it was all that people I went to school with talked about when it came out in 2006. And after almost 10 years and a lot of talk about a possible sequel, ATL 2 is on the way.
T.I. posted an image on his Instagram account of himself, Jackie Long (Esquire), Jason Weaver (Teddy) and Albert Daniels (Brooklyn) seated at a diner with director Chris Robinson standing above them all as they shoot a scene.
Robinson is super psyched about the film, and posted the same image on his own Instagram with the caption, “#ATL WAS A CLASSIC #ATL2 WILL BE LEGENDARY!!! “AND SO IT BEGINS” THE CREW @troubleman31 @jackielong @albeback @itsjasonweaver #RITF #BONG”
Jason Weaver is also super excited, telling his followers that because the fans asked for it, they had fight for a sequel to happen.
“So… I can finally announce.. ! ATL 2 is officially going down. @troubleman31, @albeback , @jackielong and ya boi outchea putting this sequel together, led by our director @mrrobotodirector AKA “The General”. The people want it, so we’re doing it!”
And you know a sequel to ATL wouldn’t work without Lauren London…
Robinson first spoke out about the possibility of a sequel in 2013, and talk of it started off as a joke.
“We all joked about doing an ATL 2, and how down T.I.’s character would be running the comic section of the newspaper and what the twins would be doing. But you never know. If the fans wanted it enough, there would definitely be a sequel.”
Well, it seems that things are finally coming together. If they’re shooting the film now, you can expect ATL 2 in theaters either by the end of the year or early 2016 (if the money behind it isn’t funny).
But the question is, would you pay your hard-earned dollars to see the sequel all these years later?
