They're ba-a-ack.

Will Smith, Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman are all onboard to reprise their immortal god and PR guru roles, respectively, in a sequel to last year's summer blockbuster.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the 3,000-year-old world from whence Smith's and Theron's characters came will be explored, with the dynamic duo teaming up to deal with a third ne'er-do-well.

Theoretically, anyway. No contracts have yet been signed, but director Peter Berg nonetheless made the hopefully not preemptive announcement at the Toronto Film Festival this week.

Fingers crossed he doesn't wind up eating those words.
