Would Ryan Gosling come back in a Drive sequel?

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Monday, June 4, 2012

James Cameron figured it out back in 1986: just add an extra letter to the title of the first one and things will be all good. Crime novelist James Sallis is following the Aliens template with his latest novel, Driven, a sequel to Drive, which was made into a movie that starred Ryan Gosling and released last year. If you haven't seen Drive, you should; it's really good, and Gosling is great in it as the stunt driver-sometimes-getaway-driver. It's also brilliantly directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.

The novel Driven has just been published and Sallis is doing promotion for it. Giving an interview with The Independent newspaper, he dropped news that there's definite interest in making a movie from the book. What's less clear is who is giving the interest; Sallis only said "they", so anyone's guess is good. The producers of Drive? Gosling's people? Refn's agent? Hollywood in general? And would Refn and Gosling like to come back and do a second film?

As more people learn about how good Drive is as a film, interest in seeing a sequel starring Gosling should increase. The question will then turn to whether there's money to be made, and a franchise to manifest, from James Sallis' Driven book.

It would've been funnier if he'd added an "l" to make it drivel.
