In a recent interview with ComingSoon.net, director Jonathon Mostow (Hancock / Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) has stated that there’s enough material behind his upcoming sci-fi action thriller Surrogates to fill many sequels.
“There’s enough ideas in here for a few sequels,” he then adds jokingly, “but maybe by sequel number four or five when we’re really strapped for ideas we’ll start having the Surrogates fight back. Surrogates 5: Rise of the Surrogates.”
I should point out that Mostow wasn’t stating that there are sequels being planned, but if the material is there and the box office take is strong, perhaps this statement will prove less tongue in cheek as time goes on.

Surrogates, based on the Top Shelf Comix graphic novel by Robert Venditti, tells the story of a futuristic world where humans live in isolation and only interact in the real world using robot versions of their ideal or perfect selves known as ‘Surrogates’. It follows FBI agents Greer (Bruce Willis) and Peters (Radha Mitchell) who are forced to interact with the real world in person as they investigate a string of surrogate murders.
