I would like to know too :D. He hasn't replied yet. But I don't want to importune him too much...

I contact him once in three months or so. I will ask for an update next month....

Nice thought, but let's keep Seagal away from anything East European like for a change, so I'd go for the other similar structure like The Pentagon, The UN-building or Buckingham palace.

Wow...it has been long time since I've last posted on this site and I remember posting something about US3 on an idea that I have been putting together since there are so many rumors surrounding US3 storyline taking place inside an airplane. For long time, I have have been against an airplane idea for US3 but ever since I was working on a script of my own (it's not US3)...I have a thought about adding an airplane plot as part of subplot for US3 but it could be part of a story transition in between Act breaks.

If I were going to do a US3, I would have act 1 taking place at the Pentagon then nuclear power plant in act 2 (I add this because when they were going to do US3, nuclear power plant was the original idea for US3 "Drought" (maybe I am spelled wrong?) by J.F. Lawton so I thought it would be a nice mix in part of story.) and act 3 could take place at a oil platform or some kind but it would be similar to Season 6 last episode of 24 with Kiefer Sutherland. I remember writing an opening of US3 if I was doing my version of US3 somewhere on here this site.

I've been working on a script that maybe I'd love to see happening someday, a script that had me stroked since I was young that I wanted to see it happen but that project eventually got either shelved or is completely dead. That project was "Secret Smile". I've thought about revive this project so I thought why not, it wouldn't hurt to write something. And that title has been stuck in my head for long time.

Few years ago, I was writing my first full length screenplay titled "Dark Rainbow", I began working on putting story together for "Secret Smile" and the idea is completely different from the version that Seagal was going to make because in my version, I incorporated Native American theme in the script. If this does happen, which I feel it should happen because the story in "Secret Smile" takes place in Western New York where Niagara Falls and Buffalo are the main cities in Western New York, the film could get 35-45% film tax incentives if a production company decide to shoot in that location. That's something that Seagal should look at rather than shooting in Romania as his other films so there is an opportunity that he could shoot a film in America instead. What more can hurt to do a film in America especially in New York?

Native American theme would be a nice change in his films that he has been making lately. "Thunderheart" (1992), "The Fugitive"(1993), and "On Deadly Ground" (1994) are used as inspirations for my "Secret Smile" script. I am aware that "On Deadly Ground" was a native American themed film and again, this is why I use this film as part inspiration.

Now the question is whether if I should go for R rated territory or aiming for a PG-13 rating instead to reach to more boarder appeal. I would leave that up to a producer or an executive to decide what rating they're going for but I would be in favor for PG-13 just to give Seagal's career a boost, possibly besting than what Stallone did for The Expendables. The Expendables 3 was terrible despite its PG-13 rating but for "Secret Smile", it would work because of "The Fugitive" which had flawless pacing to keep you on your feet throughout the whole film is what I'm intending to do with "Secret Smile".

I have a faith in that things can work. Maybe Seagal would have egoistical problems but I would have to ignore that to get the film work in exchange for a character that I want him to have a role on what he might would be silent about that he wouldn't have to do some major changes to plot. This film would be very balanced approach in terms of how his entire filmography sums up. And this is coming from a long time fan of Seagal since I was three years old. Under Siege was the first Seagal film that I saw in theaters and I recalled coming out unimpressed despite its well ensembled cast and very strong entertainment.

So nice to be back on here to talk for a little. I've been away for some time to spend time getting the script together. I thought maybe I could reach out to Steven Seagal fans and see where I can go from here. "Secret Smile" can give Seagal's career a fresh start despite his present age. Be assured, you all shouldn't worry because his character in the script fits in at his present age.

I know I'm coming in to this really late, but if I was voting, I'd go with The Keeper and Maximum Conviction as well, love them both in different ways.

Dida, I have not seen you mention it, so does this mean that Keoni Waxman has never replied back to your email regarding this?
I was really curious as to how he might have felt about some of the suggestions.
Anyway, thanks for all you do on this site, I only started coming back around recently myself and the threads and posts you've made have been a ton of fun to read and catch up on!
Take care,
Kevin

Found it for you:

Great ideas - we have been talking about a follow up to The Keeper for years. It really was a 'Walking Tall' type of story which could be done anywhere - but NM or Seattle are probably the best places. Into the Sun is a really cool movie too - a follow up would be great to do in Asia - it's one of his Sony films which makes it hard to do a sequel on since they own the story rights however...
Yes there is talk of 'Foreign and Domestic' when Steven returns. I am not involved with that project but I hear it is shooting in Alabama. Steven wants me to focus on putting together a project for him in Asia for our next collaboration so we would be doing that right afterward.
Any interest out there for a Max Con sequel? There has been many requests for that - just wondering what the fans think.
Again, keep in touch and I'll keep you posted on my end. A Good Man drops this month - let me know what you think of it and Steven using his new blade.
Peace

Well, that pretty much settles it!
First, a sequel to The Keeper and then a sequel to Maximum Conviction!
Set one in Asia and one in New Mexico or Seattle, then we get two great movies!
:D
Thanks Dida!!

Maximum Conviction 2 would be awesome! They are hired to transfer a Mexican drug lord by train to his prison home for the next 30/40 years. However the drug kingpin's followers have other ideas and take control of the train. One by one Seagal and Austin's team are taken out until it is only those two.

Seagal as Cross
Austin as Manning
Foster as Bradley
Trejo as El Rez (Drug kingpin)

Suggest this to Waxman MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!

How about a police station as an Under Siege-style setting? Then it could be just some generic True Justice-style building (hell, they could use the same building in this and whatever TJ movie that they will hopefully do to finish off that story, and save costs).

The story could have some international criminal leaving a bomb which will decimate the city, but ironically picked up by local PD on a simple driving offence / carrying a concealed weapon offence. They don't realise who he is, and he just sits in the station waiting for his heavily armed crew to pick him up.

Seagal could be either the head of one of the Detective units (TJ-style) or just the husband/father of a cop who works at the precinct, and turns up as it's getting raided. They kill all the cops, and take some hostages, but their egress is halted by the Feds who surround the building but can't take any further action because of the hostages. Seagal is caught up on the inside, and the only person who can save the day.

Location-wise, it can be one building, one set, saving loads of money. And I'm sure Bulgaria can pass for anywhere if you're just looking at something this simple.

I know it's close to the Season 1 finale for TJ, but they could do it better than that, and have it focus more on Seagal's character, rather than a whole team, which would hopefully remind us more of the Die Hards than TJ...

Just brainstorming.

I would like to see your idea.

Since we're straying of topic here a bit I'll pitch in another idea.

Setting: the (not so) near future.
Seagal is an undercover agent who has infiltrated a large crime syndicate.
Because he has been undercover for a long time (several years) his superiors fear he turned to the cime side and lost sight of his real job (he supposedly is carrying out hits for the syndicate) and declare him outlawed.
A dirty cop exposes his true identity to the crimelord and now he is hunted by both the syndicate and the cops. Can he turn the tide, bring down the syndicate and proof he is still a good guy.

Setting should be either a Blade runner style scenery or perhaps something like Running man/Total recall.

Peace
