Here's what David O. Russell had to say about writing The Fighter 2.
"I would do it whenever anyone says they're ready. I'm ready to write it. I would definitely want to be involved in that."
Earlier this month, Mark Wahlberg revealed that he wants to use The Fighter 2 to explore Micky Ward's trilogy of fights with Arturo Gatti. David O. Russell also wants to show the Arturo Gatti fights, as well as look deeper into Micky Ward's family; specifically his sisters.
"I think Micky's story has a lot of heart whichever way you cut it. You'd go towards the Gatti fights and you could go into the history of the family more. I really like the sisters."
It isn't clear when David O. Russell will start writing The Fighter 2 or when production might start.
