IGN Filmforce had a chat with "Elektra" director Rob Bowman in preparation for the Director’s Cut DVD release, and the guy had a whole lot of ideas on where he’d go with an "Elektra" sequel … provided he was given approval for a full-on R-rating.
""Because, really, she’s an R-rated character. I mean, it’s even worse in some of the comic books. The shelves are stacked with very, very aggressive, very sexy Elektra comic books. It is what it is. It’s like, sex and murder, that’s her thing."
"I would say, give me the full spectrum of it. The first one is a reconstruction. But the second one? No, no, no! Go back and say, this is one of the darkest, most capable assassins in the world, or in the comic book world."
The sequel would pick up at the very end of Elektra, where she exits the house. She’s changed a girl’s life for the better, and has learned to be more compassionate. However, "That’s no different than actually just stepping out of rehab. It’s no different than coming out of the hospital with a cast on your arm.""
For a lot more wishful thinking from a director who should probably just buck up and move on to an entirely new project, head on over to Filmforce and read the Elektra-fying possibilities.
