Vincent Cassel negotiating to reunite with Viggo Mortensen for Eastern Promises 2

Jun. 8, 2012by:

I would hope that by now everyone has had a chance to check out 2007s EASTERN PROMISES. If you haven't, I highly suggest you take in a viewing.

You also need to catch up since they are making a sequel to the film. David Cronenberg will be back to direct the second installment with original script writer Steven Knight. Who else might be back? Viggo Mortensen has already signed on, but it looks like Vincent Cassel is negotiating to reunite with his co-star.

The sequel will pick up immediately where the first left off, "with the incompetent underboss Kirill (Cassel) thinking that he and his henchman driver Nikolai (Mortensen) really have inherited the throne from his crime-lord father, without knowing that Nikolai is actually a clandestine agent working undercover in Russias federal security service."

Filming on the production will begin next year.

VERY hip to this news. Have been excited ever since they annouced this would get a sequel. I always thought Cassel's face and wicked smile just screamed THIS is who should play Loki.

I'm glad that there's movement on this project. So it's that much closer to a reality. My favorite Viggo role.

This is great news! Personally, I prefer Eastern Promises to A History of Violence, though both are incredible. Awesome that there will be more of this to come.

I have to admit that I have never seem Eastern Promises, but I have been wanting to ever since it was released. I will check it out this weekend - thanks for reminding me. Viggo is the man - loved him in History...

When you watch it, you are in for quite a treat. I wish there was a way we could forget good films, and get to experience them for the first time over and over.

YES!

If it's the same cast/crew, then HELL YEAH. Something I also wanted to share: My buddy's girlfrien is originally from Russia and would always complain about non-Russian actors attempting Russian accents, because they always sounded fake and forced. She said Viggo is EP is by far the most accurate accent she ever saw, and swore it could have come across as the real deal. Just a tid bit!

This has serious potential to be an amazing sequel. I forgot that Cassel never found out

I loved Eastern Promises! This should have been in the 15 movies that need a sequel list. I can't wait to see this.

YES!

Eastern Promises was one of the creepiest, gnarliest movies I've seen. Viggo was brilliant, and if you've seen the movie you know it almost demands a sequel.

Cronenberg never does sequels so that he's returning to this means he must really have a vision.
