One of the most underrated films of the past decade looks like it could be getting a sequel.
Director Gavin O’Connor, the man helming new Ben Affleck film The Accountant, has been talking briefly about the possibility of revisiting his 2011 MMA/UFC family drama flick Warrior.
The film tells the story of estranged brothers Brendan (Joel Edgerton) and Tommy Conlon (Tom Hardy) competing in an MMA tournament. The mixed martial arts sport helps bring the brothers and their alcoholic father (Nick Nolte) closer together.
While promoting his latest film, The Accountant, O’Connor, when asked by Screen Rant about his interest in a sequel, revealed that he has “some talks about that. Me and the actors“.
“When I made that movie, it was still… MMA and UFC and that type of fighting, it just wasn’t as popular as it is today,” he said. “And that movie, more than any movie I’ve ever made, I have a weird… there’s an amazing following of rabid fans, more than anything I’ve ever done. And I’d say that’s probably my most personal movie. So I’m really grateful and, y’know, maybe we’ll do another one.”
Honestly, if you haven’t seen Warrior do so know. It’s a gem of a movie!
