  • News: The Departed 2 (With De Niro?)

    Not Yet Departed?
    Source: The Hollywood Reporter
    January 31, 2007

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, talks are under way to put together a sequel to crime thriller The Departed, which has garnered five Oscar nominations and is the biggest box office hit of Scorsese's long career.

    The trade says "Departed" writer William Monahan is working on a take that would bring back the temperamental foul-mouthed cop played by Mark Wahlberg, who received an Oscar nomination for the role, and introduce a new character to be played by none other than Robert De Niro.

    Scorsese would need to approve any take before development was to move forward. A prequel is not being ruled out, either. The Departed is an adaptation of the Hong Kong film Infernal Affairs, to which Warner Bros. acquired the rights in 2003. The studio also had option rights to the movie's two sequels.

    I heard about this and I hope it's not true. Even though the new cast probably would be stacked, Marty doesn't need to be doing sequels or prequels at this point of his career.

      ^That's my thoughts. I'd be a lot happier if he'd just leave it alone. I'm a huge De Niro fan, but it just wouldn't fit in my opinion.

          Just say no to sequels.

          I'm still mad Jack Nicholson didn't get nominated.

              When a great movie comes out it's always interesting to hear that a sequel is being planned. As for The Departed though, as awesome as it was, it just doesn't seem like the kind of movie which should have a sequel. Still, interesting read. Let's see what happens.

                      this movie was great. no need for a sequel. but you never know, it could turn out to be really good.

                        Yes.

                        Some say Infernal Affairs II wasn't as good because it was a prequel and didn't have the original characters, it had younger versions of them.. But most say it was good.

                        Infernal Affairs III is considered good all around.

                        Hong Kong is quick on this shit though, Infernal III was released a month after Infernal II.

                        Have you seen Infernal Affairs?

                          I know that the for 'The Departed', De Niro turned down the role of the mobster and the role then wen't to Jack Nicholson. De Niro turned it down cause he was going to direct 'The Good Shephard'.

                          So maybe it could turn out good. Considering De Niro and Scorcesse's long realationship they haven't yet disapointed..

                              I think a prequel would turn out alright. I don't want a sequel though, it would ruin the ending.
