Warrior sequel on the way?

November 17th, 2016 by bash Comments



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!

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
