So apparently they’re making a “Raging Bull 2”, a sequel to the 1980 movie. Hell, they’re not going to make it, they’re already making it. As evidence, here are two official pictures from the upcoming movie. Surprisingly, Martin Scorsese is back to direct. Wait, no, that’s not right. Not Martin Scorsese. Rather, Martin Guigui (of “Beneath the Darkness” fame). Eh, close enough, right? So is it a direct sequel? Yes and no. It’s a prequel and a direct sequel to the Scorsese movie starring Robert De Niro. Now that’s what I call doubling down!
A combination prequel and sequel that explores “before the rage” and “after the rage” of world middleweight boxing champ Jake LaMotta’s tumultuous life and times.
Starring William Forsythe, Joe Mantegna, Tom Sizemore, Natasha Henstridge, Penelope Ann Miller and Mojean Aria.
Look for it in 2013.
