A sequel to John Singleton’s 2005 drama “Four Brothers” is in development at Paramount Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
Mark Wahlberg, who starred in the original, came up with the idea along with original film’s scribes David Elliot and Paul Lovett who will pen the screenplay. The original pulled in a modest but decent $74 million.
Entitled “Five Brothers”, the story details are being kept under wraps but will likely include three of the five original characters – hotheaded Bobby (Wahlberg), hard-edged Angel (Tyrese Gibson), businessman Jeremiah (Andre Benjamin).
The fourth, Garrett Hedlund’s sensitive Jack, died in the first film but the actor might return in flashbacks (though doubtful). Lorenzo Di Bonaventura will return to produce.
