Vincent Cassell says EASTERN PROMISES sequel a year or two off.

Vincent Cassell can currently been seen in BLACK SWAN with Natalie Portman. while he was doing P.R. for it, he spoke with Obsessed with Film. Among the topics was the prospects of him reuniting with Viggo Mortensen and director David Cronenberg for a sequel to the excellent EASTERN PROMISES.
Q: Is ‘Eastern Promises 2’ happening?

Hopefully. It doesn’t really depend on me actually. [laughs] If it’s happening then I’m dying to do it because of David and because of Viggo [Mortensen], we really got along very well. The script is very good, but you never know what’s going to happen. I know that David wants to do something else before, so if it happens it’ll be in a year or two.

Cronenberg is currently preparing to shoot COSMOPOLIS, a film that is based on Don DeLillo’s novel. David is also attached to the film versions of Jonathan Lethem’s AS SHE CLIMBED ACROSS THE TABLE and Robert Ludlem’s THE MATARESE CIRCLE.
