Hereâ€™s one we missed yesterday – Universal are developing a sequel to the 2007 hooligan riff â€œAmerican Gangsterâ€.
I know what youâ€™re all thinking: â€œGreat. Finally, theyâ€™ll tell the rest of the story â€“ theyâ€™ll get to the good stuff. Here comes the film they shouldâ€™ve told first-time around â€“ the one where the ex-cop defends the ex-crookâ€ (After working as a prosecutor, cop Ritchie Roberts became a criminal defense attorney, and still works as one today. Ironically, the first person he defended was Frank Lucas, for the same crime for which he prosecuted him.).
Doubtful weâ€™ll get any of that â€œgood stuffâ€ here, folkidorians. Word is, â€œAG 2â€ is likely a direct-to-DVD offering, and based on who CHUD says is starring in it – salsa singer Domingo QuiÃ±ones – itâ€™s unlikely weâ€™re going to be treated to a sequel featuring the same characters (sure-as-shit Crowe and Washington wonâ€™t be back for it) as the first film, but more so a film that shares similarities with Ridley Scottâ€™s film, but for the most part is just thieving itâ€™s name (Think â€œCarlitoâ€™s Way : Rise to Powerâ€ or â€œAmerican Pie : The Naked Mileâ€). Itâ€™s all the rage, ya know?
Universal are currently working on a few direct-to-DVD sequels – “Without a Paddle 2″, a new “Beethoven” pic, etc – so wouldn’t surprise me at all if Blockbuster will be where this thing makes its debut.
According to CHUDâ€™s scooper, the salsa singer will be playing an undercover Mexican cop in the film. The scenes in which he participates in will be shot in Puerto Rico in a few months.
Stay Tuned for more on â€œAmerican Gangster : Assignment Miami Beachâ€ â€“ or whatever tag they award it â€“ as it comes to hand.
