Rounders sequel?

07.28.2009

As poker has exploded into a ubiquitous phenomenon over the past decade, it's no surprise that ROUNDERS has also grown into more than just a cult fave. But is the story of Matt Damon's gambler and his troublesome chum Ed Norton over?

A follow-up film has been intermittently rumored over the years, but even Damon and the writers are now discussing the possibility of a sequel. "We've been concentrating on ROUNDERS 2 lately," co-writer David Levien told Pokerlistings.com. "Ideas are percolating. It's great to know that all of the original players want to come back and do another one." ("Everybody would probably come back," Damon himself speculates. "The actors all had a really good time working together.")

Levien and writing partner Brian Koppelman have been fairly entrenched in the gambling world, between OCEAN'S 13 and a new Leonardo DiCaprio project about offshore online casinos. "Vegas, the poker world, the casino environment, and the characters that gravitate around them are endlessly fascinating to us," Levien says.

Extra Tidbit: The writers still won't reveal Teddy KGB's climactic hand.

PAY THAT MAN HIS MONEY!

Great f**king film, but how can you top it? If you could bring Norton and Malk back, with the right director this bitch could rock!

NORM MACDONALD

Norm MacDonald (SNL, etc) was on Howard Stern recently and confirmed that the original film was actually based on his own experiences. Apparently the writer of the movie was friends with Norm and used to follow him into secretive gambling clubs, and decided to write a flick about it after seeing Norm lose thousands of dollars a night.

My idea? Get Norm for the sequel! XD

Actually, in that source article they say it was loosely based on Koppelman's own experiences with law school and underground gambling.

The original was a great little film, but there's really no need for a sequel.

This could go either way, a fan of the original, but I just dont see where they could go with it really.
