The sequel talk for forthcoming 'Red Sonja' has been thrown out and director Douglas Aarniokoski shared his insight on its possibility.
Though the 'She-Devil with a Sword' feature film, "Red Sonja", is still way off its theatrical release, a sequel talk has come out. Sharing his thought on the possible second "Red Sonja" movie, director Douglas Aarniokoski gave out clues that the movie's franchise is on the horizon.
To MTV Splash Page, the second unit director of "Resident Evil: Extinction" hinted on the possibility, but restraining himself from letting out more. He briefly said, "I mean, if we start to talk about that, I start to give away the third act. Yes, let's just say yes. It's definitely got franchise written all over it."
When asked about the chance of Conan and Thulsa Doom making an appearance in the following films, the filmmaker once again gave a blunt answer. "You know, again, I'd love to tell you but I can't divulge that. It's a little bit under wraps right now," Aarniokoski explained.
A remake of the 1985 action film starring Brigitte Nielsen and Arnold Schwarzenegger, "Red Sonja" is a Millenium Films' project. Adapted from Roy Thomas' comic series, it follows the story of a young girl who lost her family and everything she has to group of mercenaries. Seeking revenge, the red-head becomes the most feared female warrior of all time.
"Grindhouse" actress Rose McGowan will take on this titular character, while the movie will be produced by "Sin City" co-director Robert Rodriguez. It is said that the filming will be kicked off by the end of September for 2010 release.
