Promise of Eastern sequel
We tend to be a bit snitty about sequels, but now and then a film cries out for a second chapter. David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises was just such a beast. Now, it has emerged that Vincent Cassel and Viggo Mortensen are, indeed, likely to reunite with the Canadian master for Eastern Promises 2.
“We talked very seriously about it, and it’s going to be shot in Russia,” Cassel said. “There’s a really good script, and Cronenberg wants to do it. I told them that whenever they’re ready, I’m there.”
