Eastern Promises 2?
David Cronenberg is working on making a sequel to EASTERN PROMISES. He told MTV that:
“We are moving forward with it... We all are excited about the idea of doing a sequel... We are going to have a meeting very soon between me, Steve Knight and Paul Webster to discuss what the script would be... I have some very strong ideas about what I would like to see, but I would like to hear what they have to say as well. And then after that, if all goes well, Steve goes away and writes a great script. If we all like it, we make it.”
“It’s the first time I’ve ever been in a situation where I actually want to do a sequel to something... I’ve never had the desire to do that before. But in this case, I thought we had unfinished business with those characters. I didn’t feel that we had finished with Nikolai and we had done a lot of research that was more than we could stuff into that one movie.”
It's a pity that I'm an idiot because I bet if I were a hardcore intellectual I would appreciate David Cronenberg. Unfortunately, I'm a moron. That's why I enjoyed SPEED RACER. It was the colors. And Christina Ricci. But mostly the colors. And the monkey!
|Extra Tidbit:||Cronenberg was going to direct TOTAL RECALL.|
