If you watched Bob Odenkirk in Better Call Saul, you probably think he is pretty amazing but probably not an action star well think again because Nobody the upcoming John Wick style film stars Odenkirk in front and center of all the heavy-hitting action.
Nobody is about a suburban man living with his kids and wife, at first he seems like a mild-mannered man but after a break-in in his house his calmness starts to fade away and a deeply buried secret starts to unravel and that secret is he worked for some dangerous people in the past as an Auditor (“the last guy anyone wants to see at their door because it meant you didn’t have long to live“) and now all of his family and his life is constantly in danger.
Who is behind making Nobody, who stars in it, and is Nobody a secret prequel to John Wick? We will try to answer all of your questions so here’s everything we know about Bob Odenkirk‘s Nobody so far.
Nobody – Trailer
Nobody – Plot?
Nobody’s official plot given by Universal Studios is:
“Sometimes the man you don’t notice is the most dangerous of all.
Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, The Post, Nebraska) stars as Hutch Mansell, an underestimated and overlooked dad and husband, taking life’s indignities on the chin and never pushing back. A nobody.
When two thieves break into his suburban home one night, Hutch declines to defend himself or his family, hoping to prevent serious violence. His teenage son, Blake (Gage Munroe, The Shack), is disappointed in him and his wife, Becca (Connie Nielsen, Wonder Woman), seems to pull only further away.
The aftermath of the incident strikes a match to Hutch’s long-simmering rage, triggering dormant instincts and propelling him on a brutal path that will surface dark secrets and lethal skills. In a barrage of fists, gunfire, and squealing tires, Hutch must save his family from a dangerous adversary (famed Russian actor Aleksey Serebryakov, Amazon’s McMafia)—and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.“
Nobody – Release Date?
Originally scheduled to release on August 14, 2020, the film has been delayed multiple times due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but finally, Nobody is coming to United States theaters on March 26, 2021, and that means the film is only five days away from release.
Nobody will be released in India on April 2, 2021.
Nobody – Cast?
Nobody has the most perfect cast in all the world did you ever really think that Saul Goodman, Doc Brown, RZA from the Wu-Tang clan would be fighting together and on top of that Connie Nielsen, the Amazonian Queen Hippolyta would be in the movie.

Nobody – Creators?
Nobody is directed by Ilya Naishuller, yes that’s right the one who made Hardcore Henry, an action movie solely from the protagonist aka Henry’s point of view.
Nobody was written by none other than Derek Kolstad who made the best action movie of this generation John Wick, and he is currently working on expanding the universe of John Wick, as he writing Continental (a prequel TV series to the John Wick about the inner workings of the Continental hotels) and he has also written some episodes of the Marvel Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Nobody – Is Nobody a Secret Sequel to John Wick?
Sadly, Nobody is probably a sequel to John Wick, mostly because they are produced by different studios whereas Nobody is produced by Universal Pictures and John Wick is produced by Lionsgate.
But there are also some points that make it seems like it may be possible and the main reason for that possibility is why would Derek Kolstad plagiarize himself by writing a very similar movie to John Wick and there are also many aspects of the movie like a very organized criminal underworld.
So, tell us in the comments would you like to see John Wick and Nobody team-up or fight against each other?
