Weekly Highlights: Rounders 2, EPT Prague and more
The big news on Monday was the potential (real potential) for a sequel to Rounders to be in the pipeline. The news first came to light on indiewire.com which quoted Harvey Weinstein as saying:
“I’ve discussed making ‘Rounders 2’ with Matt Damon and I would say that’s going to be instantaneous,” the mogul declared. “The guys [writers David Levien and Brian Koppelman] have a great idea, a way to make it more international where you start the card game in Paris, that’s all I want to say. There might be a certain beautiful Parisian actress involved in it, and then we’re off to the racetrack and Vegas with Matty and Edward Norton, and a new supervillain to replace John Malkovich.”
