Which means lost product placement money from Nabisco.

In one of the few sequel announcements (updates, rather) Rounders 2 is a flushed-out property, according to Deadline, who has quotes from no less than Harvey Weinstein saying as much.

The film, which will be written by the writers of the original, David Levien and Brian Koppelman, will see Matt Damon and Edward Norton returning. The film will be more “international” with the opening card game set in Paris. On that note, Weinstein said that “There might be a certain, beautiful French actress” in the film. Which has to mean Marion Cotillard, right? I mean, she’s the only beautiful French actress there is, right?

Despite the international flavor, the producers seem to be going a little more American with their villain, writing out Teddy KGB for a character played by Robert DeNiro, who may just be parlaying his Silver Linings Playbook cred into somethign more than Grudge Match.

No word on a release date yet, but Weinstein said production would be “instantaneous” following a just-reached partnership to share the archives between TWC and Miramax.

The parallels between this endeavor and Boardwalk Empire are numerous, but since no one’s really complaining about the presence of Boardwalk Empire in their lives, let’s see what Gangs director Martin Scorsese and Miramax can do with a slightly older large-scale period crime series.

Word on┬áthe┬ástreet (Tinseltown Blvd, that is) is that Scorsese wants to dive into the period in a fashion that he just couldn’t do in the almost-three-hour film. While that may seem ambitious, it’s been a healthy dose of delusional ambition that has brought us some of the best television of the past decade and has pared down the asinine fare like According to Jim and any TV show with acronyms.

He’s Martin Scorsese. He can do this if he really wants to.
