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.

Like a petite farm girl fresh off the bus, Harvey and Bob Weinstein also have Broadway dreams. Unhappy with only taking over the gaming world, the brothers are eyeballing the Great White Way for song and dance adaptations of some of their hit films.

Finding Neverland, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Cinema Paradiso, and Chocolat are all properties that the Weinsteins are hoping to shoehorn a little razzmatazz into. Finding Neverland is the furthest along with a book by Grey Gardens team Scott Frankel and Michael Korie. But what other Weinstein films deserve to be told via the inspirational power of jazz hands?

It would be cool to see Clerks or Scream or Kill Bill adapted for the stage, but I think the Weinstein property that’s really crying out to be sungĀ  is Who’s Your Caddy? Get Lil Wayne working on the songs and you’ve got a hit on your hands, my friend. (NY Observer)
