Netflix has confirmed that it's going to make a Bright movie sequel.

Written by Max Landis (Victor Frankenstein) and directed by David Ayers (Suicide Squad), two figures in the film industry who have more than their fair share of detractors, Bright is a recipe for disaster. Speaking to Collider ahead of Bright's release, he explained that he has "30 pages" of text describing the minutiae of different orc races.

Despite Bright not being received very well by critics, it is Netflix's most streamed movie in over 190 countries.

Sorry, critics, but the future is still "Bright" at Netflix. Now the sequel (which was brokered to be produced during the production of the initial film) has been officially announced. It follows a veteran cop (Smith) who reluctantly takes on a new partner, an Orc played by Edgerton, and has to protect a magical wand from law enforcement, criminals and an array of supernatural characters. They also said "Bright" was the No. 1 movie on Netflix around the world, having more global viewers than domestic.

The film stars Smith as a police officer in an alternate version of Los Angeles where orcs, fairies and magic co-exist.

Are you excited for a Bright sequel? We don't know for sure because Netflix doesn't release their streaming numbers, but The Hollywood Reporter says an average of 11 million U.S. Netflix users streamed the film in the first three days.

Bright features a cast that includes Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Happy Anderson, Kenneth Choi, Brad William Henke, Andrea Navedo, Dawn Olivieri, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz and Jay Hernandez. Based on how Netflix does business, the film could be done as early as 2019, but it's possible Netflix could push back the release to 2020 if there were production delays or other issues with the production.
