Could there be room for an Eastern Promises 2?
According to Cassel, who is currently promoting his French Gangster Biopic Mesrine, there is more to tell. "We talked very seriously about 'Eastern Promises 2' and it's going to be shot in Russia with Viggo and myself.”
While Eastern Promises clearly doesn’t need a sequel, Cronenberg has never been the kind of director to simply sell out. If there is a second story worth telling, there is a good chance that it will be a great addition to the original film.
Until then, you can look forward to Cassell as the notorious French gangster in Mesrine: Killer Instinct due August 27, and Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1 due out September 10.
