Bob Odenkirk in Universal Pictures' 2021 action-thriller 'Nobody.'

Two-time Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk has officially signed on for “Nobody 2,” the highly anticipated sequel to the 2021 action thriller from Universal Pictures and 87North.

This news has fans eagerly awaiting the return of Odenkirk’s intense and gripping performance.

Timo Tjahjanto, known for his work on “The Night Comes for Us,” will direct the sequel from a script by Derek Kolstad (John Wick, Nobody), Aaron Rabin (Jack Ryan), Odenkirk, and Umair Aleem (Kate).

The film is set for release on August 15, 2025.

Producers Kelly McCormick and David Leitch are also returning through 87North’s first-look deal with Universal, along with Odenkirk, Marc Provissiero through Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment, and Braden Aftergood through Eighty Two Films.

Universal’s Executive Vice President of Production Development Jay Polidoro and Director of Development Tony Ducret will oversee the project.


While plot details for “Nobody 2” remain under wraps, the original film followed Hutch Mansell (Odenkirk), a seemingly ordinary suburban father who reawakens his lethal skills as a former government assassin after a home invasion.

This incident propels him into a violent confrontation with a Russian drug lord.

Directed by Ilya Naishuller, the first film was a darkly comedic, action-packed thrill ride that grossed over $57 million worldwide despite its release during the Covid pandemic.

Odenkirk, best known for his role as Saul Goodman in AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and its prequel “Better Call Saul,” recently starred in and executive produced the college-campus dramedy “Lucky Hank” for AMC.

This fall, he will also be filming “Nobody 2” and reuniting with Kolstad on the crime thriller “Normal,” directed by Ben Wheatley.

With this powerhouse team and the return of Bob Odenkirk, “Nobody 2” is poised to deliver another thrilling and action-packed adventure.
