Yes, ‘Raging Bull II’ Is Happening…Whether You Like It Or Not

Posted: April 5, 2012 in Movies

Sometimes…well, most times…Hollywood just doesn’t know when to reel itself in.  When to put down the proverbial pipe and step away from the drugs.  I can get behind Tron Legacy, American Reunion, and even a new Star Wars movie…but I can’t get behind is a sequel to a movie that happened in 1980 and starred Robert De Niro.  Anytime Robert De Niro and Martin Scorcese team up, 33 years later you better leave that movie the f— alone.  Raging Bull II is definitely happening.

Reports at MovieHole confirm that a sequel to the 80’s hit is definitely happening and will be both a “prequel and sequel with events taking place parallel to the original film”.

The report points to casting taking place for the presequel now with production starting in June.

William Forsythe will be taking over from Robert De Niro as “Jake LaMotta”.  Forsythe is probably most well known for his role in the HBO television series Boardwalk Empire as gangster “Manny Horvitz”.

Not to worry guys, this one is likely going straight to DVD.
