This article explains if there will be a Lou 2, a sequel to the Netflix movie Lou (2022), and will contain spoilers.
The new Netflix movie Lou arrives on the airwaves of the streaming giant. With the popularity of such unassuming action stars, like Bob Odenkirk’s recent vehicle Nobody and Sylvester Stallone Samaritan, Lou might have some lingering long legs for Netflix. However, Lou has something those other movies don’t – Allison Janney. Amid the female empowerment renaissance, Janney’s ode to the roles of Geena Davis and Sigourney Weaver is more relevant than ever.
Lou (2022) sequel potential release date
Lou released on Netflix on Friday, September 23, 2022. The film currently has a 67% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Our film critic MN Miller says the film is “a horribly boring thriller”. If the movie has lasting legs on Netflix and given the theme of female empowerment and seeing them in traditional male action roles, we could see a sequel by fall 2024.
Lou (2022) sequel cast – who can participate?
Technically anyone can, but hear me out. The surviving main cast characters are Jurnee Smollett’s Hannah, Ridley’s Vee Asha Bateman, and Matt Craven’s Sheriff Rankin, all of whom survived the storyline. Hannah and Vee were on a ferry crossing the water the last time we saw them. Sheriff Craven was helping Hannah pack her things home. Two other characters that could appear are the federal agents, Lee and Hampton. They are currently looking for the evidence that Lou hid on the takeover of Iran. Oh, and maybe Lou since his body was never found.
Yes, the last time we saw Lou, she was floating on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, and we thought she might have been swept away by a current. Remember, when the helicopter descended into the water, we never saw if ANYBODY was dragged into the plane. The final scene shows a woman, we presume Lou, holding binoculars while watching over her family. How do we know? The woman holding the binoculars has a hand like Lou.
And I have one more thought for you – we never saw Philips’ body recovered either.
Lou (2022) sequel plot – what can Lou 2 be about?
Lou could be on the run and watch over his family. However, does that mean that Hannah and Vee could be part of the plot? Yes and no. Perhaps the movie can be about the federal government’s pursuit of fugitive Lou. However, I could see a story where the government uses Lou’s family as pawns to bring our favorite killer out of hiding.
The second idea goes to Philip. As I pointed out, technically we didn’t see any recovered bodies. And even if Philip was stuffed with lead, we all know Hollywood rules state that submachine gun wounds can easily miss vital organs for sequels when money is at stake. My point is this: Lou and Philip seemed to have resolved their issues, or at least come to some kind of forgiveness. Maybe Philip is alive and in federal custody. I can easily see a movie around Lou infiltrating such an establishment to free her son to pay him back for all the mistakes she made as a mother.
