Remember when I said they’d make a Commando sequel before they’d reboot the film? I lied. Actually, I never said anything about anything. But the rumors have started flooding in, and Slashfilm has found several instances of corroborating evidence that indeed, a Commando sequel just might be in development… and that it might have a star already willing to take up the John Matrix mantle.
The trail of clues starts in Australia, where, according to JoBlo, there’s an article in a magazine called RCI that simply states a remake is being developed. Okay. But what of it? I heard Fox just optioned the remake of Tom Rothman’s dream he had last night, a dream that was essentially a reënvisioning of Garfield 2.
But there’s more. CineFools.com also has picked up on the possibility that Dwayne Johnson is attached to the film already.
I don’t know how I feel about this. I think I have to meditate on it by watching the GREATEST opening credits sequence of all time… from the original Commando. You can watch it, too, after the jump.
