Joe Carnahan has posted an update on his direct-to-DVD prequel to Smokin’ Aces, which has been now been greenlit by Universal.
Here is what Carnahan had to say about the prequel:
So Universal has given us the greenlight to begin the prequel script and done so with great enthusiasm. They were as adamant about NOT doing a prequel as I was about doing one but since the Nigerians NAILED the outline, they all got hipped and jumped at it. If all bodes well, we’ll have a completed script inside 8 weeks and be shooting 10 weeks later.
