‘Pan­ther’ se­quel signs up Coogler

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Josh Rot­ten­berg

Ryan Coogler, who di­rected and co-wrote this year’s Marvel block­buster “Black Pan­ther,” has signed on to write and direct a se­quel to the film, a source close to the pro­ject con­firmed Thurs­day.

Pro­duc­tion on “Black Pan­ther 2” is likely a year or more away, as Coogler jug­gles devel­op­ment of the se­quel with a planned drama called “Wrong An­swer” and “Space Jam 2,” which he is set to pro­duce, with LeBron James star­ring.

“Black Pan­ther” has hauled in $1.3 bil­lion world­wide, mak­ing it the sec­ond­high­est-gross­ing film of the year be­hind Marvel’s “Avengers: In­fin­ity War.”
