Drive To Get A Sequel Called, Eh, Driven
So there has been a sequel to one of the best films of last year, Drive, written, all be it in novel form, and there's now apparently a film adaptation "in the pipeline," says The Independent.
The book is, unsurprisingly, called Driven, and see's the Gosling character from the first Drive now living a relatively quiet existence in Phoenix, suppressing his violent tendencies. Married and content, when his wife is murdered he goes absolutely ape-shit and sets about handing some hoodlums their arses. There is no confirmation, or even hint of confirmation, that Gosling or his director Nicolas Winding Refn, will be returning. Both men are heavily in-demand after the success of Drive - which has quickly garnered a cult following.
Drive was one of my favourite films of last year, and deserved a wider audience. I could see Refn and Gosling revisiting the character but maybe not for a while yet...
