Good news for people who like things that are awesome. The Russian mob film Eastern Promises, starring Viggo Mortensen and directed by David Cronenberg may have a sequel picking up where the original left off.
It was only a matter of time before A Dangerous Method, A History of Violence, and Eastern Promises star Mortensen got back together with Cronenberg after sitting out the director’s next film Cosmopolis, which stars Robert Pattinson.
While Viggo didn’t exactly fill in a lot of gaps, he acknowledged that they’re cracking on the sequel, saying, ““I think that’s still a possibility, but something we’ll definitely do [together] I’m sure and I’m looking forward to it already, whatever it is.”
That makes two of us, Viggo.
The original closed with a twist ending that could have taken the story in any one of a number of directions, so they’re no doubt hacking out in what capacity that want Mortensen to be a total badass. Here’s to hoping they figure it out sooner rather than later.
