Director Peter Berg is in talks to helm 'Rundown 2' and wants to cast Jonah Hill in the movie
Jonah Hill is wanted for 'Rundown 2'.
Director Peter Berg is in talks to helm a follow up to the 2003 action comedy movie 'Rundown', which starred Dwayne Johnson, and the filmmaker is keen for the comedian to join forces with the wrestler for a sequel.
He said: "We've been talking about it. You know, I wanted to do it with Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson. If I could get Jonah Hill, I'd do it tomorrow."
Berg has confirmed a script for the follow up movie has already been written and he is working on getting a cast together so the project can get off the ground.
He added to Collider: "Anything's possible. We want to do it, it's just hard to get everybody, you know. It's on our minds. We actually wrote a script.
"But I want Jonah Hill, so reach out to Jonah. Pressure Jonah to do it. If Jonah Hill would do it, I'm in."
The original movie sees Johnson play bounty hunter Beck who is sent to the Amazon to retrieve his employer's son Travis Alfred Walker, who is portrayed by Seann William Scott.
Rosario Dawson and Christopher Walken also starred in the motion picture as rebel leader Mariana and mining chief Mr. Hatcher respectively.
While Berg is yet to sign Hill up to the movie, it could also prove tough to get Johnson on board as his busy schedule held up production on 'G.I. Joe 3'.
Byung-hun Lee, who is to appear as Tommy Arashikage/ Storm Shadow in the movie, recently
said: "I heard from the studio that there's a possibility to do the third one, but I think they're waiting for the actors' schedules.
"They're arranging the schedules for the actors, especially Dwayne Johnson."
