American Gangster 2?

American Gangster

This is kind of an obscure little tid-bit about a potential Hollywood big-budget, straight-to-DVD sequel (it’s most likely just the latter though). CHUD is reporting about the possibility that production is beginning on American Gangster 2: El Barrio (which is also known as Spanish Harlem in New York City), due to the fact that salsa singer Domingo Quinones has said that he was cast in it.

Quinones reported, “I was just chosen to work on the movie American Gangster 2, in which I’ll play an undercover Mexican cop. The scenes in which I participate will be shot in Puerto Rico in a few months.” So this is either a straight-to-DVD sequel like we’ve seen with the Cruel Intentions, American Pie, and Bring It On crew, or it’s Ridley Scott’s most secretive project to date (in this scenario, I’d lean toward the forward).

So the sequel would appear to be about undercover cops, and I’m assuming . . . drugs. Since Cruel Intentions 2 focused on sex and betrayal and Bring It On: All or Nothing focused on cheerleading, I’m assuming American Gangster 2 might have a sub-plot or six involving drugs.

Sorry about the sarcasm, there’s just not much here to report. American Gangster is a pretty solid flick, but I can’t see Denzel, Russell Crowe, and Ruby Dee’s Oscar-nominated open palm reuniting. American Gangster 2 will begin shooting (allegedly) in a few weeks. Film School Rejects: Where Specifics Reign.

He's been a cubicle monkey for the last few years, a veteran stage actor of over 10 years, a sometimes commercial actor, occasional writer of articles, a once-legend in the realm of podcastery, purveyor of chuckles in his homecity of Chicago as he has trained with the world renown iO (Improv Olympic) and Second City Conservatory and performed with both theaters, and can be seen doing a thing that actor's do on the website of his online sitcom, Josh also likes to tackle the beef of his bio with one run-on sentence, because it befits his train-of-thought.
