Rounders 2 Poker Movie to get Produced


The sequel to the iconic poker film Rounders will finally see production thanks to a partnership between Miramax Films and Qatar Holding and rounders-movie-pokerproduced by The Weinstein Company.

“I’ve discussed making Rounders 2 with Matt Damon and I would say that’s going to be instantaneous,” said American film producer Harvey Weinstein.

The original 1998 movie was a film about the underground world of high-stakes poker starring Matt Damon, Edward Norton and John Malkovich as the villain. It is rumoured that Damon and Norton will be in the sequel and possibly also Robert DeNiro will play the villain this time round.

Rounders 2 will have a more international setting, with part of the movie taking place in Paris and also in Las Vegas.

The original film was not a huge box office success, which would explain the delays in making a sequel, but with a cult following and the popularity of poker growing exponentially since then, fueled in part by this film, it is expected that Rounders 2 will be a hit with poker fans.
