Not to be outdone by Martin Scorcese's upcoming Taxi Driver 2, Oliver Stone today announced that he has been approached to make a sequel to JFK, tentatively titled 'JFK 2'
A spokesman for Warren Commission Films Inc told us that he expected shooting to start soon, jokingly adding that he didn't expect the shooting to start from the Texas Book Depository or the grassy knoll in Dealey Plaza.
Reporters responded to the quip with a sullen silence, indicating that they were not remotely amused. After nervously clearing his throat and mopping his brow with a silk handkerchief, the spokesman announced that JFK was such a good movie that it deserved a sequel, which would probably involve Jim Garrison, portrayed of course by Kevin Costner, investigating the loss of millions of dollars in the making of the movie turkey 'Waterworld.'
When challenged as to where JFK would fit into the plot, the spokesman for Warren Commission Films Inc remained unruffled as he explained that JFK didn't have too many lines in the first movie, so he didn't anticipate it making all that much difference.
Kevin Bacon, Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones have already ruled themselves out of the project.
More as we get it.
