A sequel to Rounders could still possibly happen

06.06.2011

The whole poker craze doesn't seem quite the ubiquitous phenomenon it was just a couple of years ago, but that doesn't mean we've seen the last movie centered on the game/hobby/addiction.

At the recent Produced By conference, Harvey Weinstein cited ROUNDERS as an example of a film that found a considerable following on home release, and said: "I never make sequels but it’s something I’d like to revisit." (We'll assume he had selective amnesia about all the sequels he's actually made at Dimension.)

Alas, a continuation of Matt Damon's gambler and his problematic pal Ed Norton has been discussed for years, with co-writers and casino lovers David Levien and Brian Koppelman (OCEAN'S THIRTEEN) often making comments about a sequel, and hinting that everyone involved in the original (including director John Dahl) would return.

Damon himself previously speculated that he and the others would gladly play another round, stating "The actors all had a really good time working together." But while audiences would probably ante up to see it, could the actors and filmmakers ever find time on their schedules? 

Meanwhile, Weinstein has a whole bucket of other sequels and remakes he's ready to throw at you (SPY KIDS 4, THE AMITYVILLE HORROR: THE LOST TAPES, PIRANHA 3DD, etc.)

Rounders is one of those movies that stands on its own, it doesn't need a sequel. There's no more story to tell. I wouldn't mind this cast and director doing something entirely original however.

I love Rounders, but I just think its been too long. The only way I could see a sequel work is if Worm and Mikey were enemies this time around at the World Series of Poker or something like that.

Ya know, I'd actually be up for this if everyone returned. The original is one of my favorite flicks so if they did something cool like what (bad comparison) Color of Money was to The Hustler, I'd be pumped.

Rounders is my favorite movie of all time, and I never get tired of watching it.... But I'm not sure about a sequel. It just feels weird to pull a sequel out so many years later, and I just don't know that it's necessary. But, if they brought everyone back and made it, it would be very difficult to avoid it.

To quote Ed Norton......

We need this sequel 'like we need a cock in the ass!'

how would you make a sequel to this? I would be down if the original cast returned though!

Bob was in charge of Dimension, not Harvey.

Yeah, and Harvey was still a producer on many of the movies.

Both brothers got credits on each others films, but just like Bob didnt have anything to say about Harvey's films, Harvey had nothing to say about Bob's films. Know your film stuff dude.

I've worked with people who have made a number of films with them. I feel comfortable saying I know my "film stuff", dude.

I loved Rounders, but a sequel feels wrong. Some movies just come at the right time for them to be successful and I think Rounders was one of those. It hit at the perfect time for people to appreciate it, but I think that window has closed.

Extra tidbit- I play with friends on a fairly regular basis.

As for the movie, too little too late.

I dig Rounders and wouldn't mind a sequel as long as they brought back 'Worm' and not Gretchen Mol

I liked Rounders as this surprising little niche drama that pre-dated the hipster Texas Hold'Em craze. That flew under the radar because of crappy marketing and everyone found in their own time. That was half the charm of it. And the story told is a complete one, not necessitating a sequel.

But hey, that crew of actors around the table again, and they have some "color of money" take on it...it may indeed "hhhhhhave my money."

"Rounders" is one of my favorite movies of all time and I would be down with a sequel. But ONLY if everyone from the first one was involved.

Worm is one of my favorite Ed Norton characters.
