"We'll see what happens, for sure," he said before revealing that he, as well as others who worked on the film, are certainly hoping that it happens.

There are many different ways it could go, and we'll wait and see if it's the right story," the actor, who is also appearing in the much-anticipated upcoming film Red White and Royal Blue , continued. "But it's very cool to see people asking for a second one."
