Shoot ‘Em Up doesn’t even open until September but star
Clive Owen is already
thinking about a possible sequel. Writer/director
has written a script that would go if the first one is a success and Owen’s
already taken a look.
"On my life, it makes [Shoot ‘Em Up] look like kids
television," said Owen of the proposed screenplay. "I honestly don’t think he’ll get it past the censors.
That’s how ridiculous it is."
Shoot ‘Em Up plays with the action genre, enjoying
the comedy of outrageous acts of violence, with one memorable scene combining
sex and gunplay. That’s nothing compared to the sequel.
"The merging of sex and violence in the next one is verging
on porn," teased Owen.
So go see Shoot ‘Em Up to support Owen and Davis’
efforts to further subvert the action genre. "We’ll see how this one goes," said
Shoot ‘Em Up arrives in theaters September 7.
