Rounders sequel and GWH series

Harvey Weinstein says a Rounders sequel is likely and there may be a TV series of Good Will Hunting:

“I’ve discussed making Rounders 2 with Matt Damon and I would say that’s going to be instantaneous,” Weinstein continued. “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.” Weinstein is eyeing Robert De Niro for that role.

Re: Rounders sequel and GWH series

I remember you reported - maybe a couple of years ago - on a dinner with Matt, Harvey, Norton, and the writers. Rounders actually feels fairly imminent by the way Harvey is talking. Of course, it is Harvey, so who knows? But Matt has pushed this idea for awhile, and must be pleased.

Here's a very excited report, which contains an interesting Rob Lowe angle. Who knew Lowe was so important?!

Re: Rounders sequel and GWH series

We'll see. As long as it's decent enough for a standalone project and is a quality film, regardless of its predecessor. It also has to be very cheap to make.
