"Project X," the low-budget comedy that opened as the No. 2 movie in America, may have spawned a sequel.
"Project Y" anyone?
TheWrap has confirmed that screenwriter Michael Bacall, who wrote the $12 million found footage film that grossed $21 million over the weekend, began work on a potential sequel well before the movie opened.
