There will be two more sequels coming from the 2002 drama film “Road to Perdition” that starred Tom Hanks, the first film being directed by Sam Mendes. “Road to Perdition” is about a young boy who lives with his family during the 1930’s, and he finds out what his father Michael Sullivan Sr. (Hanks) does for a living, he works for organized crime known as the mob.

Max Allan Collins is confirmed to write and direct the next two sequels to make the “Perdition” film into a full trilogy. The next sequel will be titled “Road to Purgatory” which will leave off from the first film, Michael Sullivan Jr. returns home from World War II and seeks revenge for the murder of his father. The third film will be titled “Road to Paradise” but this article didn’t reveal plot ideas for the third one though.

“Road To Perdition” starring Tom Hanks is one of my favorite films, I love that film to death but is a trilogy really necessary? I don’t know. Depends on how good the story is and who the casting is going to be and then I’ll decide if a full trilogy is worth it.

Cool Video: “Angels and Demons” teaser trailer NOW online!!!

The Ron Howard and Tom Hanks movie “Angels and Demons” which is a prequel to the movie “The Da Vinci Code” based upon the books by Dan Brown, the teaser trailer to the prequel is now online finally.

The film looks great!

See the trailer at the films official website here:

Remember this is NOT a sequel to “The Da Vinci Code”, this is a prequel which means the story happened before. Honestly, I thought “Angels and Demons” was a much better book than “The Da Vinci Code”.

Dan Brown did once announce that he is writing a sequel to “The Da Vinci Code” to complete the trilogy.

BREAKING NEWS: Tom Hanks drops out of “Fahrenheit 451″…

Tom Hanks has been confirmed to Frank Darabont’s film “Fahrenheit 451” (the classic sci fi novel by Ray Bradbury) for a long time. Not anymore. The film is now once again without a leading man. Before Tom Hanks, Mel Gibson was interested in playing the role for a long time until he decided to quit acting for good. Hanks pulled out due to a busy schedule.

MTV Movies Blog reports:

It’s understandable why Hanks would drop out, ’cause he just completed the film “The Great Buck Howard”, he’s currently doing the voice overs for “Toy Story 3”, and soon he’ll be filming “Angels and Demons”. He’s just too busy with other projects he’s committed to that he doesn’t have time for anything else.

Who should Darabont go after next? Who should play Guy Montag the leading character?

I’d say go for Emile Kirsch, the actor who played in the film “Into the Wild”, he’d be perfect for the role, I think. They need a younger actor for Guy Montag.
