It seems that a long-thought-dead sequel might have some life left in it still. MTV Movies Blog caught up to director Spike Lee at the Sundance Film Festival, and the filmmaker revealed that a sequel for Inside Man is still moving forward.
The sequel was originally going to be written by the first film's writer, Russell Gerwitz, a script which involved Clive Owen's criminal crew partaking in a diamond heist, but now it seems Terry George (Hotel Rwanda) has taken over the writing duties.
"I got an email from Terry George yesterday," Lee said. "He just finished-he's at the end of the first act."
Apparently Lee has Clive Owen, Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster and Chiwetel Ejiofor all set to reprise their roles in the sequel, and he could possibly start shooting this year.
"If the script is up to snuff, we'll be shooting it," he says. "Here's the thing: if everything lines up-people's schedules are open, [we'll begin in] late summer, early fall."
