Last Week â€“ while we were awkwardly offline â€“ word leaked that a prequel to â€œ300â€ (yeah, the guys-in-undies romp released last year) was in early development. Apparently theyâ€™ve just got to iron out everybodyâ€™s contract â€“ or was that â€˜under wearâ€™? â€“ before Warner officially announce it.
You know what? I couldnâ€™t care for a â€œ300â€ follow-up. Iâ€™d much rather see a follow-up to the greatest gangster movie of the last ten years, â€œThe Departedâ€.
A year or so back it was revealed that Mark Wahlberg was circling both a sequel, and a prequel, to the all-star Oscar favourite. There were even people putting pen to paper on them.
The actor-who-wishes-to-distance-himself-from-the-Marky-Mark-tag offered MTV an update on those films.
â€œTheyâ€™re [still] developing it,â€ Wahlberg sighed. â€œIf it can be better than the first, then great. Iâ€™ll be all for it. Iâ€™m not interested in going for the paycheck. I love â€˜Godfather 2â€™ but, then again, I donâ€™t like â€˜Godfather 3.â€™â€
Did I just hear someone yell out â€œDonâ€™t hold your breath, Clint!â€?
