1 Comments David O. Russell is making a sequel to The Fighter, but it's not Silver Linings Playbook. Silver Linings Playbook is a novel he happens to be teaming up with Wahlberg to adapt to a movie (who he works with constantly).

In the source article they refer to this as the follow up to The Fighter simply because it is his first movie after it. This is not The Fighter sequel because The Fighter is nonfiction and Silver Linings Playbook is a separate fiction tale. The Fighter sequel will come after Silver Linings Playbook.
