In 2012, 9-year-old Caine Monroy was the star of a viral video that captured the world's attention. Now, 10 years later, he'll be the star of another viral video.
The BBC reports filmmaker Nirvan Mullick will direct the sequel to his short film Caine's Arcade, which tells the story of Caine and his elaborate cardboard arcade.
The sequel will be released Sept. 27, 2022, according to a press release from the Two Circus Foundation, the nonprofit that's behind the Cardboard Challenge.
