While director Peter Berg's 2003 action-thriller The Rundown wasn't a blockbuster by any means, taking in just over $80 million worldwide, the movie has gained quite a following over the past 10 years. The director revealed that he is actively developing a sequel, with Dwayne Johnson on board to reprise his role as the bounty hunter Beck.
Here's what the director had to say, when asked if he was sick of people asking him about the sequel.
"No, never. And we just met with writers, so we're trying to do it. I really want to do it. I've talked to Dwayne. I have an actor in mind that I can't say that I want to work with Dwayne on it, and we want to do it. Yeah, we're meeting with writers now."
The original movie, which was written by James Vanderbilt (White House Down) and R.J. Stewart, followed Beck on a mission to the Amazon jungle in search of Travis (Seann William Scott), son of the mafia boss Beck is indebted to. Both Beck and Travis team up to search of lost treasure.
Oddly enough, if this project goes into production, it will be the first time Dwayne Johnson has appeared in a sequel to one of his own original movies. He has appeared in several high-profile sequels such as The Mummy Returns, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6 and G.I. Joe Retaliation without starring in any of the first films in those respective franchises.
