Rounders sequel gets green light

Rounders sequel gets green light

Friday, 17 December 2010

Decent poker movies are pretty thin on the ground (Lucky You anyone) but it looks like after years of rumour and speculation there's movement on a sequel for the daddy of them all, Rounders.

The Weinstein Company released a statement yesterday confirming that they will be working with Miramax on Rounders 2. “We are very close to these films and the new management of Miramax also feels that we are in the best position to create sequels that are at once worthy and compelling in their own right,” said a press release from The Weinstein Company.

There's no word yet on who will be directing or starring in the new film but Bluff Europe is hoping, as sequels go, that it will be more Godfather 2 than Jaws The Revenge.
