Four Brothers wasn’t a major cult or commercial success when it was released back in 2005, but the movie did make a decent amount of change at the box office. Enough to make Paramount take a second glance at the film, and think about making a sequel. The cast of the movie was led by Mark Wahlberg and according to Yahoo, the actor and the studio are interested in reprising the Brothers‘ story.
Four Brothers centered on just that, four adopted brothers who included Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, Andre Benjamin aka Andre 3000 from the rap duo Outkast, and Garrett Hedlund. They all returned to their hometown of Detroit, Michigan where they discovered that their adoptive mother had been brutally gunned down and murdered. Driven by anger, they turn into a four man detective team seeking out justice for her. The film was directed by John Singleton and earned a gross of 74 million dollars at the U.S. box office.
If you haven’t seen the film spoilers ahead:
The biggest problem with making a Four Brothers sequel is the fact that there aren’t four brothers left. In the first film Jack, who was played by Hedlund was killed towards the end of the movie. If they return for another, they’ll have to title it something else. And who would be the bad guys this time around? It would be logical to take down the guys who killed their little brother but Wahlberg’s character Bobby already handled that in the last one.
What direction should they go in for the Four Brothers’ sequel? What should the movie’s title be?
