A sequel to ‘Drive’ could be coming


This may fall more into the rumor mill but the team over at The Movie Banter are speculating a possible sequel to Drive because of the recent release of a follow up book that the movie was based on.


James Sallis, who wrote the book the first movie was based on, has just released a follow-up book, Driven. And Sallis has somewhat illusively declared that Driven is indeed “in the movie pipeline.”


Now I hate to be the skeptic here but I wouldn’t count on a sequel in the works just yet. There is so much that goes into making a movie and I wouldn’t count on this being in the works until there is word from the studio. There have been so many books that have had sequels written without a film adaptation so I would take the Author’s comments with a grain of salt at this point. Also I would like to add that, in my opinion, Drive is a film that should not have a sequel. I liked the ending of the film and I think that it met its closure. Anymore follow up films would seem like Hollywood was just “milking the cow”.

About Ryan

First and foremost, Ryan Brown is a fan. He has been an avid fan of both the theater and cinema since an early age and his passion for both has been continually growing ever since. When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.

  1. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Bless you!

  2. I agree that Drive was a solid film and doesn’t necessarily need a sequel. The main character has such a mysterious background and left the audience with so many questions about him.  If given to the same team as the first film it could turn out to be worthy film on its own. Not all sequels are bad. Some absolutely outshine the original.
