Some great news from fans of the incredible movie City of God from 2003. The rights to the big-screen sequel, titled City of Men, have been picked up by Miramax for U.S. (and a few other markets) distribution. The deal was made at the Toronto International Film Festival that just finished up and was based on a five-minute promo reel they were shown.
City of God director Fernando Meirelles will not be directing, but will be producing. However, City of Men is being directed by Paulo Morelli and is currently being edited after having already been filmed. The film will continue the story of the two friends in Rio de Janeiro caught in the middle of a drug war.
Exciting news I'd say! As long as the same passion and dedication that went into City of God shows up in City of Men. And who doesn't love even more sequel news?!
