Con Air 2?


Sounds like something I could have only hoped for back in 1997, when this film came out (contrary to what the article says below…don’t test me on that either, I know!). I thought this movie was amazing when I first saw it. But what was I thinking? Of course I would have. High octane action, cursing, killing…I was always wondering why my mother didn’t like Nic Cage in this movie. She said he did a horrible job. I didn’t understand it at the time. I guess I was too young. And then they put it out on DVD a few years ago with some special edition version (I think it was back in 2006, because we had the apartment and I bought it the same day I graduated with my Masters because my parents gave me a gift card to Best Buy and I went and purchase “Con Air”, “Crimson Tide” and “Enemy of the State” all of which came out on that day) and I sat down and watched it and to my horror, it Nic Cage did a pretty bad job in it. What a difference time makes, huh?

Anyway, I don’t think it would be a good movie. I don’t even know if there is even an audience for it. I mean, who would remember “Con Air” from 14 years ago, and that’s just calculating from today. If they ever get this thing off the ground…ha! No pun intended.

Simon West Wants A "Con Air" Sequel

Out doing promotion for “The Mechanic”, director Simon West says he’s looking at a potential sequel to his very first feature, the 1996 Nicolas Cage action feature “Con Air”.

“I’d like to do… ‘Con Air 2′” West tells Crave Online, “It’d be great. It’s a matter of getting everybody together. There’s so many people involved and it’s about getting everybody to agree. But I’m going to bring it up to Nic. I’m going to put a bug in his ear about it. If the two of us want to do it, we’ll go after the others.”

West’s next project is “Medallion” at Nu Image/Millenium Films which reunites West with Nicolas Cage. The story follows a father, a former master thief, who has only a few hours to find his daughter when she is kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a New York medallion taxi cab.
