The Longer Kiss Goodnight: Sequel Gets Some Movement

In an interview with Film School Rejects, director Renny Harlin discusses the fact that although it's a subject he's often thought about, there's finally some movement on a sequel to the Geena Davis/Samuel L. Jackson starrer The Long Kiss Goodnight.
“I just came back from Miami where I directed an episode of Burn Notice," Harlin explains. "I really like that series, so I went to go and direct an episode, and the writer of the episode was Ben Watkins who is one of the producers of the show. I’d read quite a bit of his stuff, and he turned out to be a giant fan of [The Long Kiss Goodnight] so we started talking, and we decided we’re going to do it together."

Adds the article, "The director also confirmed that the concept for the film hasn’t changed much. It will still focus on Samantha’s (Geena Davis) daughter Caitlin (played by Yvonne Zima) who teams up with Jackson’s character Mitch to seek revenge on the people who take her mother’s life. Of course, Caitlin would be 21 or so (which puts Zima in the running to reprise the character age wise), but it’s unclear as to whether they’ll seek a bigger name or stick with true continuity."

Shane Black, writer of the original, won't be involved as he's tied up with a little project called Iron Man 3.
