Butler reprises his role as structural engineer John Garrity alongside Baccarin as Allison Garrity, reported Variety.

In a continuation of the story, the Garrity family, who survive a near-extinction level event when an interstellar comet hits Earth, must leave the safety of the Greenland bunker and embark on a perilous journey across the decimated frozen wasteland of Europe to find a new home.

Producer and financier Anton, Basil Iwanyk's Thunder Road Pictures, and Butler and Alan Siegel's G-BASE will produce the follow-up.

Principal photography is scheduled to begin next year.

"Greenland" was originally scheduled to be theatrically released in the US but was delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The film was released domestically by STX Entertainment through video on demand in December, and then streamed on HBO Max and Amazon Prime. It was released in other territories like Belgium last July.
