Simon West Wants to Make 'Con Air 2' & Salvador Dali Fantasy Film
We already know that Nicolas Cage will re-team with director Simon West for the action thriller Medalliion, the story of a father and former master thief who has only a few hours to find his daughter when she is kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a New York medallion taxi cab. However, apparently West is interested in working with Cage for a sequel to one of my favorite action flicks from the 90's. Crave Online recently spoke with the filmmaker who revealed that one of his current dream projects is Con-Air 2, the sequel to the 1997 high-flying, crazy action flick with Nicolas Cage aboard a plane full of dangerous convicts.
West told Crave, "Con Air 2, I'd like to do. It'd be great. It's a matter of getting everybody together. There's so many people involved and it's about getting everybody to agree. But I'm going to bring it up to Nic. I'm going to put a bug in his ear about it. If the two of us want to do it, we'll go after the others." In addition, West also vaguely mentioned another interesting project that he'd like to get off the ground. He doesn't give much details but the director said, "But there's also Dali, which is a big CG/fantasy thing about Salvador Dali that I want to do. I've just got a little stack of them on my shelf that I'm trying to work my way through. A huge children's fantasy film. Hopefully I'll soon be working my way through that stack.
A huge children's fantasy film from Simon West? That could be interesting. And some sort of CG/fantasy flick about the Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dali sounds like quite a trip. However, I'm partial to seeing a Con-Air sequel get off the ground sooner than later. I'm not even sure where the story would go since the first film migrated from Con-Air to Con-Firetruck towards the end. Maybe we'll see something literally out of this world like Con-Space? the possibilities are endless! Are you interested in a Con-Air 2?
