In 2003, director Peter Berg (left)unleashed the action-comedy The Rundown, starring Dwayne Johnson (right) as a bounty hunter who is tasked with bringing back Seann William Scott as the duo go on a wild adventure in the jungles of South America.
It’s been thirteen years and during press work for Deepwater Horizon, Berg has revealed that there is a script for a sequel to the film. Johnson have admitted he would love to return to the role but of course, Johnson is one of the busiest actors in Hollywood today, so scheduling would be an issue. The other issue would be a co-star who would team up with Johnson. Berg already has someone in mind:
“We’ve been talking about it. You know, I wanted to do it with Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson. If I could get Jonah Hill (center), I’d do it tomorrow. If I could get Dwayne and Jonah Hill, I’d do it tomorrow… Anything’s possible. We want to do it, it’s just hard to get everybody, you know. It’s on our minds. We actually wrote a script. But I want Jonah Hill, so reach out to Jonah. Pressure Jonah to do it. If Jonah Hill would do it, I’m in.”
Here’s to hoping we see Jonah Hill and Dwayne Johnson in The Rundown 2. Just add a villain worthy of Christopher Walken‘s original villain (that tooth fairy speech is classic!) and I will be in for this one!
