Last month, Sony announced the movie was pushing back from its original April 2022 release plan and is now dated for October 7, 2022.
The original was a critical and commercial success, grossing $190M domestic and $375M globally.
Details of the sequel have been kept largely under-wraps. Shameik Moore is expected to return, among other cast members. Joaquim Dos Santos is directing and Dave Callaham is scripting.
