Report: “Road to Perdition” sequel on it’s way???

Back in 2008, it was revealed that a sequel to the 2002 mobster film, “Road to Perdition” is in the works. The sequel will be titled, the “Road to Purgatory”. Max Allan Collins wrote the script and it was already turned in, but it seems that he is no longer attached to direct.

The story to the sequel will focus on the son of Michael Collins returning from WWII to avenge the death of his father. The first one starred: Tom Hanks, Jude Law, Paul Newman, and Daniel Craig.

The question is, would Tom Hanks return as the lead? Well, he obviously can’t because….”spoilers below”…

SPOILERS from the original “Road to Perdition”

Hanks character, Michael Sullivan Sr., was gunned down at the beach house at the end of the movie.

END SPOILER

Maybe Tom Hanks can return but in a different form. If they can use Michael Sullivan Sr. flashbacks with Tom Hanks playing the character still, or maybe Hanks can do narrated voice overs.

I would also like to see Sam Mendes return to direct the sequel, hopefully he’ll be up for it.

Report: Depp, Farrell, Law donate “Dr. Parnassus” paychecks to Matilda…

Everybody thinks “The Dark Knight” is Heath Ledger’s final film, but it’s not true. If everyone gets their facts straight, Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus” is Heath’s last and final film ever. This was the film Heath Ledger was still filming before he died. Heath Ledger originally was supposed to play the leading role throughout the entire film but due to his death, three big name actors took over Heath’s spot leaving the real Heath a cameo in the film.

Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law who starred in the film agreed to give their paychecks they got from making the film to Matilda, the daughter of Heath and Michelle Williams.

Those three guys did a great thing. They got plenty of money, they don’t really need it. Matilda deserved it.

Kudos.
