Viggo Mortensen and David Cronenberg will reteam for a sequel to the terrific “Eastern Promises” (No, this one ain’t got anything to do with a Polish chick breaking a promise to give you a rimjob either).

The 2007 flick, which also starred Aussie hottie Naomi Watts, told of a Russian teenager living in London who dies during childbirth leaving clues to a midwife in her journal that could tie her child to a rape involving a violent Russian mob family. Mortensen played Nikolai Luzhin, a driver for the abovesaid rogue rabble.

Cronenberg, who also directed Mortensen in “A History of Violence”, tells MTV “We are moving forward with it. We all are excited about the idea of doing a sequel.”

The film’s screenwriter, Steven Knight; original producer Paul Webster; and original studio, Focus Features, are all returning.

“We are going to have a meeting very soon between me, Steve Knight and Paul Webster to discuss what the script would be,” Cronenberg said. “I have some very strong ideas about what I would like to see, but I would like to hear what they have to say as well. And then after that, if all goes well, Steve goes away and writes a great script. If we all like it, we make it.”

Cronenberg, whose other credits include “The Fly” and “Dead Ringers”, says, “It’s the first time I’ve ever been in a situation where I actually want to do a sequel to something,” he admitted. “I’ve never had the desire to do that before. But in this case, I thought we had unfinished business with those characters. I didn’t feel that we had finished with Nikolai and we had done a lot of research that was more than we could stuff into that one movie.”
