Wahlberg On Departed Sequel Plans

Actor Mark Wahlberg has spoken out about the rife rumours in regards to two potential sequels to his current hit “The Departed”.

The actor told Empire Online that for the second one “They’re talking about bringing in De Niro to play a senator or a congressman….You know, the corruption obviously going deeper and higher up the ranks — reaching up the political chain. So it’ll be fun.”

As for a third? “If it’s a success, they’re gonna do a prequel and bring everyone back….make it a trilogy”. Scribe William Monahan is currently at work on the script and talk of a start of production date could be as early as December.
