Skydance will serve as the lead studio and oversee development and production on the next movie, while Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre will executive produce.

Meanwhile, Robert is also working on a sequel to 'We Can Be Heroes' for Netflix.

The filmmaker has been tapped to make a follow-up to the hit superhero film, which proved popular with audiences across the globe over the festive season.

The flick stars Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Pedro Pascal and Yaya Gosselin and follows what happens when a group of grown-up heroes are kidnapped by evil villains, leaving their children to save the day.

Robert took to Twitter to confirm the news, writing: "44 MILLION FAMILIES will have suited up for WE CAN BE HEROES in its first 4 weeks!!

"And... BREAKING NEWS: The Heroics are coming back for round two! I'm in full development of the sequel with @Netflix!"
