Mark Wahlberg coming back for a Four Brothers sequel?

Jan. 14, 2010by:
Coming off the the very mixed reviewed Peter Jackson adaptation of THE LOVELY BONES and a string of somewhat underwhelming films, Mark Wahlberg appears keen on going back to a project that was a little more decently received by both the public and critics.

According to THR, Wahlberg has hatched an idea for a sequel to the 2005 John Singleton film FOUR BROTHERS entitled... FIVE BROTHERS. Let's see, there was Brother #1: Mark Wahlberg, check. Brother #2: Tyrese Gibson, check. Brother #3: Andr Benjamin, check. Brother #4: Garrett Hedlund, DEAD. Guess away at who you think will slum it for a paycheck to play Brothers 5 and 6.

The 2005 FOUR BROTHERS centered on a group of four adopted siblings who came together to avenge the inexplicable murder of their sweet, old, and well-regarded mother. The film, though often somewhat retarded, was in the end a very enjoyable action-drama, and probably Singleton's best film since BOYZ N THE HOOD (though I admittedly have a soft spot for 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS for some reason).

On board the sequel are most of the first film's creative team, including original writers David Elliot and Paul Lovett. No mention of John Singleton, who I assume is still working on LUKE CAGE?
Extra Tidbit: Deceased Brother Garret Hedlund played Patroclus, Achilles's cousin in 2004's TROY, and will next be seen in this year's TRON LEGACY.

Revenge is sweet

This is definitely something worth making. But has it been too long since the first one?? 4 Brothers has since made itself an original cult classic

My list for Wahlberg sequels I'd like to see before this:
1. Italian Job
2. Departed
3. Planet of the Apes (maybe)

Quite possible the most unnecessary sequel ever produced.

It took me multiple viewings to appreciate the first one but not too sure about the whole "adding brothers" concept. They should just start where they left off. Another brother dies, they go avenge his death, boom, entertaining sequel.

Loved the first one but a sequel makes no sense. Hedlund was great in the first one which of course makes this worse seeing as he was killed.

Oh, so they'll give the green light to this, but not to 'A Third Mule for Sister Sara'?

To hell with Hollywood and its anti-mule agenda.

No.

Four Brothers is just not a sequelable movie. Yes i just invented that word. I agree with Terminal_83, this idea just sounds stupid.

Yeah I thought the first one was okay for a remake. I much prefer The Sons of Katie Elder. As for the sequel, it sounds extremely stupid.

Phew!

I misinterpreted the whole Garrett Hedlund dead bit. But after a quick Google search he is apparently alive and well.

I'm very interested..

in what they could do with a sequel. Loved the first one and thought it kicked ass. It was an enjoybale flick and I thought all the actors had great chemistry with one another playing "brothers" from different backgrounds. I'm game for a sequel.
