John Singleton may be getting back with the “Brothers” once more, for a sequel titled “Five Brothers.” The idea for the follow-up comes from “Four” star Mark Wahlberg and the original’s writers, David Elliott and Paul Lovett. The actor also may return to star.
There’s also no confirmation that Singleton will be back. He directed the first movie of course, and his only upcoming project (as listed on IMDB) is superhero flick “Luke Cage,” posted for a 2011 release. He could easily fit in a smallish project like this before the Marvel Comics movie starts rolling; that’s assuming it’s even still happening and on schedule.
“Four Brothers” followed the titular (adopted) siblings — played by Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, Andre Benjamin (aka Andre 3000) and Garrett Hedlund — as they worked to avenge their mother’s death. There’s nothing plot-related about the planned sequel to reveal just yet, though it’s a safe bet that Hedlund won’t be returning, being that his character didn’t survive “Four Brothers.”
I am exited about the sequel and it says that ”Hedlund won’t be returning…” I mean, I know his character died but everything can happen in a movie, right? We’ll miss Jack, can he come back? 😀
