I remember seeing Four Brothers and laughing so hard. I know it wasn’t a comedy, but there are some lines in that movies that are just LMAO funny! That’s when I knew that Mark Wahlberg was one of my favorite actors (see my 1:1 interview with him here).
So now I get word that he might involved in doing a sequel to it. Here’s the article we got from THR.com.
Paramount is developing a sequel to its 2005 thriller “Four Brothers,” bringing back many of the creative team for “Five Brothers.”
Mark Wahlberg, the star of “Four Brothers,” hatched the sequel idea with that film’s writers, David Elliot and Paul Lovett.
The original movie, directed by John Singleton, revolved around four adopted brothers (Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, Andre Benjamin and Garret Hedlund) who come together to avenge their mother’s death in what at first appears to be a random robbery. Although not a massive hit, it still grossed a tidy $74 million at the domestic box office.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, and it is not clear which of the other actors, if any, would return. Hedlund would appear to be out, as his character was killed in the first movie. Wahlberg stars in Peter Jackson’s “The Lovely Bones,” which opens nationally on Friday, and appears in the upcoming “Date Night” with Steve Carell and Tina Fey.
