Den Of Thieves Sequel Is Happening

Given the reviews, we would not have expected to see Gerard Butler-starring crime thriller Den Of Thieves to spawn a sequel. And yet, spawn one it has, with Butler, 50 Cent, O'Shea Jackson Jr. and writer/director Christian Gudegast all returning for some more running, punching and likely bullet-swapping.

The first film had Butler's LAPD Sheriff "Big Nick" O'Brien taking down a bank robbery gang that included 50 Cent's Levoux and Jackson Jr's Donnie, but things will be expanding out internationally for the sequel. In the new one, Big Nick is tracking Donnie in particular (who, spoiler alert, was revealed to be much more of a mastermind than he appeared to be at the end of the movie), as he teams up with the infamous Panther mafia to rob the world's biggest diamond exchange.

Though the box office didn't necessarily scream sequeltunity, the movie has made more than $57 million worldwide and saved a lot of money on the original budget and marketing through tax incentives and pre-sales. Which is the boring movie maths way to say that the producers, including Mark Canton and Tucker Tooley, believe it makes sense to shoot another with STX International and Diamond Films.

In related Butler news, his other sequel, in this case Olympus Has Fallen second follow-up Angel Has Fallen has added Piper Perabo to its cast. The movie finds Butler's Mike Banning dealing with a terrorist attack on presidential plane Air Force One. That film has Ric Roman Waugh in the director's chair and will shoot this year.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…

Academy Award nominee Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Hidden Figures) star in Participant Media and DreamWorks Pictures' Green Book. In his foray into powerfully dramatic work as a feature director, Peter Farrelly helms the film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line.

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on "The Green Book" to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger—as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a …
