According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie about the tortured World War II veteran, Louis Zamperini, is getting a sequel that will explore the difficulty that the Olympian-turned-POW had in his private life after coming home.
The film will be a "faith-based" sequel.
"The biggest criticism we got was from people in the faith-based community who read the book and said, 'Well, it left out the whole Billy Graham scene,'" said Zamperini's son.
The movie will be directed by Harold Cronk and the distribution will be handled by Pure Flix.
While talking about the movie, producer Matt Baer said, "Zamperini's story in World War II is well known from 'Unbroken', the book and film, but the details of his post-war struggles and ultimate redemption are so stirring, they deserve to be told in a stand-alone project."
