Mr. Brooks 2 & 3?

Seems like everyone and their uncle Johnny from back home is jumping on the "sequel" bandwagon, and that includes films that have yet to be released in the first place, like Kevin Costner's latest entitled MR. BROOKS, in which he plays a regular Joe who also just happens to be a creepy serial killer...on the side. Speaking to EW magazine recently, Costner said of his role in the film: "I wasn't dying to do a role like this... But when I read it, I thought the writers found an amazing window into the subject matter. Now I feel this is as strong a performance as I've ever given." Stronger than the one you gave in THE BIG CHILL?? Say it ain't so, Kev.

Costner went on to say, that even though he's never been keen on sequels, "I haven't done TIN CUP 2, BULL DURHAM 2 or OPEN RANGE: THE EARLY YEARS...but this one was written with the idea that we would do a couple of others.", the ideas they presented to him about this film's possible continuation, made "the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. We're hoping this little movie develops a following so that we can play this story out the way it should." Honestly, I'm pretty much against most sequels that are made for the sakes of the dinero, but in this case, I quite liked the film's creepy first trailer, so who knows. Also...sign me up for that OPEN RANGE: THE EARLY YEARS movie...good shit!! MR. BROOKS opens on June 1st.

Extra Tidbit: Harrison Ford was originally up for the role of Jim Garrison in Oliver Stone's JFK, but after he turned it down, Kevin Costner stepped in and kicked arse.
