Even though bookshelves currently feature the sequel to James Sallis’ novel Drive, on which Nicolas Winding Refn’s 2011 cult film was based, the director has no plans to adapt it. We previously brought you the author’s thoughts on an adaptation of Driven; that film may still go ahead, just not with Refn and star Ryan Gosling attached. However, Refn commented on the fact that even though a Drive sequel is out of the question, the character of The Driver may yet appear again on screen. Hit the jump to get this sorted out.
Edgar Wright is re-teaming with popular theater The New Beverly to present a new line-up of some of his favorite films. Wright will be on hand to introduce all of the films (schedule permitting). This is an awesome collection of films and if you live in Los Angeles and don’t attend at least one of these double-features, you’ll be missing out.
Hit the jump for the schedule. The Wright Stuff 2 begins January 14th with a triple-header of Wright’s films Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
