The World Depends On You For A ‘Con Air’ Sequel, Nic Cage

Tuesday, January 25 by

I really didn’t want to like Con Air when it was released back in 1997 but how can anyone dislike Con Air? The explosions were huge, the concept was ridiculous, the hairpieces outlandish, and the dialogue was terrible. In other words, it was really, really awesome. Morbid curiosity alone would get me to the theater for a sequel.

And that’s exactly what Simon West wants. While making the rounds for his latest The Mechanic (which isn’t half-bad by the way), he let it slip that he’d like to helm a sequel.

Con Air 2 I’d like to do. It’d be great. It’s a matter of getting everybody together. There’s so many people involved and it’s about getting everybody to agree. But I’m going to bring it up to Nic. I’m going to put a bug in his ear about it. If the two of us want to do it, we’ll go after the others.”

I’m not sure who the others are considering all the bad guys either get shot, impaled, run over by a plane, have their arms chopped off, set on fire, blown up, electrocuted, or have their heads pounded to goo by a pile-driver. John Malkovich‘s character could have had a brother though. Whatever. Just get this thing made. (Crave Online)
