Twice The Naked Brawling


David Cronenberg is ready willing and able to continue on with his love affair with Viggo Mortensen for all the world to see. Apparently he wants his next project to be a sequel to 2007's Eastern Promises. Via DH:

"We [he and Viggo Mortensen] are moving forward with it. We all are excited about the idea of doing a sequel... We are going to have a meeting very soon between me, Steve Knight [writer] and Paul Webster [producer] to discuss what the script would be. 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"

I thought Promises was alright. Thing is... I know admitting this drives Cronenberg crazy, but I really do miss his old sick self. His new semi-respectable sick self is leaving me wanting. Why not a sequel to Videodrome? What I'm saying is, I could use some more pulsating wounds, David. Hungry, pulsating wounds. Think about it.

Maybe he'll at least find the room to have Viggo and Vincent Cassel's characters consummate their relationship this time though...

I wouldn't so much mind that.
