CON AIR 2 Coming From Simon West?
Could a Con Air sequel be in the works?
Simon West‘s new adrenaline-filled action remake The Mechanic arrives in theaters this week. In an interview today with CraveOnline the director revealed his next project Medallion, will reunite West with Nicolas Cage. The two worked together on Con Air, one of the director’s first feature films.
Here is what West had to say:
“I’d like to do… ‘Con Air 2’.”
This is definitely the early stages, so nothing is solid and the film may never materialize. One huge factor is the massive cast of the 1997 film which West hopes to reunite.
“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.”
I loved Con Air mainly because of the great cast of characters. It would be perfect to reunite the cast, but it may also be cool to have a mix of old and new action stars.
What are your thoughts on the possibility of a Con Air sequel?
