Schindler’s List II “Schindler’s Revenge” Greenlighted

VSN 3/22/08
HOLLYWOOD- Universal Pictures has approved a $100 million budget to produce a sequel to the 1993 Best Picture, Schindler’s List.

Liam Neeson and Ben Kingsley have reportedly signed multi-million dollar contracts to reprise their rolls as Oskar Schindler and Itzhak Stern. Steven Spielberg, whom won the Academy Award for Best Director for the original Schindler’s List, has refused any involvement in the new project.

Schindler’s Revenge” is the current working title.

“We were disappointed when (Spielberg) refused to have anything to do with the new film,” Brett Jakobs, Universal PR spokesman, said at a recent press conference. “We want to take this franchise in a new direction, and unfortunately Steven is busy with Indiana Jones IV,” Jakobs continued. "We are currently in negotiations with Rob Cohen to direct the film.”

Sources have indicated that the new film will feature more action and less drama than the original. The plot will concern Schindler clearing his name with Stern’s help, and the duo setting out on a high action-adventure across Europe and South America to bring Nazi’s to justice.

While Cohen has not officially been named director, he was instrumental in writing the screenplay, according to an insider. It was said that his idea was to take elements from the original movie, and combine them with the plot of XXX and Stealth.

No release date has been set.
