Please I really hope this isn't true but it seems like 'The Departed' is going to be hit by a sequel. Writer William Monahan is working on a new story involving the police officer played by Mark Wahlberg and a new character to be played by Robert De Niro.
If he was so clever to be involved in the movie in the first place, why can't he see that a sequel is a bad idea. There was a reason why Mark wasn't a lead character in the first place. The Departed director Martin Scorsese would need to approve any follow-up so I'm hoping that he says NO!
Another surprising news is that they are planning to do a Robin Hood movie (the hundred version) with Russel Crowe as Sheriff of Nottingham. Apparently in this version the sheriff is the good guy who investigates murders with Robin Hood as the main suspect. Why do I see a flop coming?
