When Annihilation 2 will come out?
The film Annihilation is based on the first novel of the Southern Reach trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer. Despite this, project director Alex Garland has no plans to turn the other two books into films. This is his final opinion. Garland has completed the task and goes further. Can another director take on the part 2 of the film? Theoretically, yes, but there is no reliable information about this.
