Surely everyone has seen whats widely known as the best poker film ever made? We are talking of course about Rounders where Matt Damon stars along side Ed Norton and John Malkovich. Well, Rounders 2 has been confirmed by Miramax and is set for release in 2012.
According to a recent press release the original cast of Damon and Ed Norton who played “worm” have signed on to the film, and we could be seeing what happened to Mike Mcdermott (Matt Damon) after we were left wondering just that as he left in a taxi for Las Vegas at the end of the first film.
We really can’t wait for this and hope it’s as good as the first film. Despite the popularity of the rounders film today when it was first released it was not the “big film” expected. Since the poker explosion however rounders is infamous and has almost cult status. Many players quote the film when playing live poker. . . whether they know it or not!!
If you’re one of the few poker players yet to see the origional rounders film heres a clip:
