I've got a contact looking into what the issues are and where the rights lie to Under Siege and it's characters. So hopefully we will have a definite answer soon.

I would love to see Under Siege 3. A decade ago I wouldn't have settled for anything less than a full theatrical feature but now even I'm willing to accept a high end DTV production. However I just can't see it happening now. I know there are all sorts of rights issues surrounding the films and that's why I think if another sequel was going to be made it would have been done already. Someone would have sorted those issues and made another theatrical feature (probably without Seagal) or a DTV one with Seagal or another action star or wrestler 10 years ago when the DTV market was booming. Like you say it's all about the funding and buying the rights to Under Siege and the Casey Ryback character from Warner Bros. is an expense that many DTV companies would not be willing or able to fund. After all we don't see further films in the Foreigner franchise with Seagal as Jonathan Cold because again that requires rights to change hands. It's cheaper to just have Seagal starring as a different identikit badass former spec ops agent each time. And of course Warner Bros. themselves (if its still them who actually owns the rights) could make the film but again why haven't they done so before? They had a DTV production company for six years but haven't ever mentioned making another sequel with or without Seagal or even as a remake/reboot. I just don't think there is enough in it for them to invest in such a large project. Solo outings from Stallone and Schwarzenegger recently faired poorly and they were both bigger box office stars than Seagal. Granted they weren't sequels but Rocky Balboa and Rambo were a few years back now. A Good Day to Die Hard was a box office success but then that franchise hasn't laid dormant for nearly 20 years plus Bruce Willis has regular roles in other non action films. Maybe, just maybe If Seagal appears in Expendables 3 and gets enough good publicity from that then Under Siege could be on the cards. But like you say it all depends on Seagal seeing the bigger picture, taking what he's given and then making the right decisions on the back of it.



Wouldn't we all but considering he hasn't made a film for 7 years and said he wouldn't ever work with Seagal again I think that's unlikely.



Exactly right and that's one of the main factors in whether the film will be made or not. One of the reasons the Expendables films work is because they still look like action stars. Rocky Balboa and Rambo worked because Stallone still looked like those characters. We all know that Schwarzenegger is going to bring it for King Conan and Terminator 5. Seagal hasn't really been bringing it the whole times he's been making DTV films. Sure he's come pretty close to looking good for his age but he's never managed to keep himself there. I don't know whether he can get in the shape required for Casey Ryback and I'm not sure the studios would believe he can either.



Haha that's very true!

Of course I wouldn't expect Seagal to look like he did in 1995 but something more like a former Navy Seal is required if Under Seige 3 is to be at all credible. Seagal can't rely on his stunt double for something like this!



Thats really mature!

I think you'll find it's you who needs to get over it ORANGATUANG.

Someone had made a perfectly valid point and yet you've just dismissed it out of hand. You've not even put across a valid counter argument!
Sorry but i dont see why i should get over it dont you think its getting abit boring that fans insist on having an go at his size or age ? look at all these other actors whom are in the same boat but dont hear negative things about them ..as long as Steven can do his job nothing else matters...i shall remain loyal to him no matter what ..looking forward to this next movie and since its got actors like Danny Trejo has to be good..

Marky does have point Orangatuang. Sure there are many actors who gain size weight over the years, but they don't take on roles of beeing a former special ops or navy seal in such shape.

All action stars are reasonably fit orwork their ass of getting fit for the part. Just to add some credibility to the part they are playing.



Peace
