Sheila spoke to the cast of Parker at roundtable interviews today. We will have the full interviews for you soon, but we want to pass along what Michael Chiklis had to say about Pawn and a possible Shield movie. Chiklis is a producer on the low-budget crime thriller Pawn, and stars alongside Forest Whitaker, Ray Liotta, Common, Nikki Reed, Stephen Lang, and Max Beesley. This is the first feature Chiklis has produced, and it sounds like a challenge, “It’s a little movie. All things considered, it’s a cool little film. A lot of bang for the buck considering it was a 15-day shoot.”
Chiklis estimated he has been asked about a movie to follow up on his landmark FX series The Shield “ten thousand times.” But he remains enthusiastic about the possibility: “I’d love to do it. Ask Fox, please… [Creator Shawn Ryan] has a phenomenal idea to move forward with it.” The Shield series finale is among the best ever, so it’s encouraging that the Ryan and Chiklis want to continue the story for creative reasons.
