Is it even possible for Seagal and woodie to make the movie without the permission from Warner Brothers ?? I mean dosn't Warner Brothers still own the rights ???

It's really bad to see Seagals filmography of the last years. We haven't seen a true Seagal movie, where he really is the main actor, since almost 7 years. He made some pretty entertaining movies between 2007 and 2010, since then he mostly appears in supporting roles of mostly boring movies. Even the more decent, like "Killing Salazar", don't work because of his limited screen time. They may be passable action movies, but just not Seagal movies. Also, Seagals shape was mostly better in the last decade. I don't expect to see him in "Exit Wounds" -shape again, but something like "Driven to Kill", where he really seemed to care about the product, should be possible.
The only interesting projects seem to either disappear or, like "Attrition", delay multiple times.
Also I don't understand why he chooses "Above the Law" instead of "Under Siege" to make a sequel. However, Roel Reiné would be a decent director choice for example.

I'm sure if he wanted to he could get back in Exit Wounds shape again, the question is if he wants to spend all those hours doing it ?? But i'm sure he cares about the product for Above The Law 2.. We cant actually judge what we havn't seen yet. So lets wait and see. With all the critisism Seagal has gotten over the years on social media because of his weight, i'm sure that he knows that people dont want to see a chubby Nico Toscani in Above The law 2.. But again if that is the way he chooses to appear if the movie is happening, then we just going to have to deal with it ;);) ..

I'm sure other people are thinking the exact same thing.. It also surprises me..

Good News! Very excited for ATL2!! It could work. Seagal needs to loose 15-20 pounds, no voice dubbing, keep it simple, try to do as much hand-to-hand as he can, and minimize stunt double usage!! Above the Law could be as good as "The Keeper" and "A Dangerous Man"!!!

We shouldn't get too excited. The movie isn't even in pre-production. Seagal's assisstant at Steamroller Productions is just writing a script. Shooting is still far away....
Exactly.
And it will most likely be an overweight Seagal, which takes away from it completely for me..
