Rounders 2 To Be Made Instantaneously

Harvery Weinstein, Miramax, Matt Damon all on board.

Rounder 2 looks like it’s going to be a go.

According to Deadline.com, The Weinstein Company and Miramax have forged a new alliance to “exploit the creative properties in the library that the brothers left behind when they exited Disney” and this, of course, includes the classic poker cult film Rounders.

One of the most powerful men in the film industry, Harvey Weinstein, spoke generously on the future of Rounders 2.

I’ve discussed making Rounders 2 with Matt Damon and I would say that’s going to be instantaneous.

He continues to talk about the possibilities of the film:

The guys [writers David Levien and Brian Koppelman have a great idea, a way to make it more international where you start the card game in Paris, that’s all I want to say. There might be a certain beautiful Parisian actress involved in it, and then we’re off to the racetrack and Vegas with Matty and Edward Norton, and a new supervillain to replace John Malkovich.

Supposedly, Weinstein is considering acting legend Robert De Niro for that part.
