Did I hear Seagal say that Attrition isn't out yet? That's good news, because it means we hopefully will get a proper release soon!
And he said something about Under Siege 3, normally he says when he had the money it comes. But now he was more positive, as if they are more active on part 3!
He did mention US3 but I don't see how it really fit in with the other two after so long? It won't happen, let's face it, but if it did... ?
Well that is true, it won’t fit. But the answer now and couple of months ago is different. Or he is just saying this to keep the people stick to him haha.

I think the answer is not so different. He just needs financing....he also said that in the 365 flix interviews...
