Will Smith, Jason Bateman, Charlize Theron jump to 'Hancock' sequel

Smith, who is already looking at a prequel to "I Am Legend" and a third installment in the "Bad Boys" series, has signed on for a sequel to superhero flick "Hancock," according to Variety.

Director Peter Berg told attendees of the Toronto Film Festival that Smith and co-stars Jason Bateman and Charlize Theron had agreed to reprise their roles for "Hancock 2."

While other details were scarce, Berg did let slip that the sequel would find Smith's and Theron's superpowered psuedo-gods contending with a third surviving member of their species. The first movie, released in 2008, followed Smith's Hancock, who learned from Theron that the two were part of a race of powered-up immortals whose powers fade when in close proximity to one another.

Bateman played Theron's mortal husband and Hancock's PR agent.
