^ Really? I hadn't heard of anything like that. Of course I wouldn't want a sequel, but I could really see Paddy Considine playing Travis Bickle. He's the only actor around now that's anywhere near De Niro was back then. I can't see Raging Bull 2 being done at all, biopics don't usually have sequels.
Also, that Alien remake/prequel has been confirmed to be a prequel, BUT Ridley Scott (the original director) is now directing.
It might turn out alright then, but I don't seen the point.
If you think you're free, there's no escape possible.
