Smokin’ Aces prequel gets greenlight and a name.

Smokin’ Aces prequel has name and is moving forward.

On his web site, Joe Carnahan announced the name of the forthcoming prequel to his 2006 film Smokin’ Aces. It will be called Smokin’ Aces: Blowback. Carnahan has previously described it as “pretty ambitious picture action-wise and has a wonderfully unique political skew.”

According to the posting, Universal has green lighted the film with no real changes.

The plan is to get it started pre-strike. That could be tricky because Carnahan just started pre-production on his big screen version of James Ellroy’s White Jazz.

No word on who will be in Blowback, but Joe did say this:

I’d love to find a way to work our regulars into cameos in the flick. I’ve put
my mind to this and we’ll devise something slick to give some camera love
to the loyalists.
