Foster on Inside Man 2
A while ago Spike Lee was talking about a sequel to Inside Man. And he was talking about all the stars of the first potentially coming back, script willing.
Turns out Jodie Foster hasn't heard anything on a sequel, but she might be interested. I loved her character in the first, a very powerful lady. But won't a sequel dilute the first a bit?
Inside Man (Filmstalker review) told the story of a bank raid, seemingly gone wrong. There follows a plot with lots of twists, and some great characters. Clive Owen, Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster and Christopher Plummer all starred. The director Spike Lee talked about a sequel and said back then:
I want the script to be even better than Russell's, and Russell wrote a really good script.
The idea being, that if the script wasn't good then none of the original stars would be back.No one seems to have checked in with Jodie Foster though, who is a little confused at news of a sequel. She talked to MTV Movies Blog:
Why, you have some dope I don’t know about? I don’t think that’s what he said. You know something more than I know? Are you writing it or something?
So, could it be that Inside Man 2 is going ahead without Jodie Foster? Are they cutting her role from the sequel? For her part she talks about how much she loved making the film. And that she's open to a second.
Sure! From your mouth to his ears, of course I would love to.
Can't tell if she's serious there or not. She had a great role in Inside Man, one of her best. She plays the darker roles really well. The whole Inside Man sequel has me worried anyway. The first was so good, and the twist was great. I'm not sure they can pull off the same thing again.
Do you want Inside Man 2? If so, do you want Jodie Foster back?
