Op MovieWeb verscheen onlangs een interview met Max Allan Collins, die het volgende zei over de stand van zaken rond de mogelijke trilogie: Well, I can only tease, Im afraid. We seem to be right on the brink, or maybe its the precipice, I dont know (Laughs), of a deal being signed. Things have gotten very, very serious and I have, for years, held onto it as a project I would direct, because I have directed five independent films. It does look like, now, that I wont be directing, but it is my script. Thats the most important thing to me, that the material be faithfully rendered. That isnt to say that you have to do it absolutely faithfully. There certainly are differences between my graphic novel and Road to Perdition, but the spirit of the story is there. Mendes really got it and understood it and, I think that, in some ways, enhanced it.
Op de vraag wie er de regie op zich zou nemen, antwoordelijk Collins: I dont know. Weve been approached and the offer seems to be very, very serious. We have signed a round of paper but it is not nailed down yet and it looks to be pretty interesting. I will tell you that this will happen about 10 years after Perdition ends. Michael is 10 years older in Road to Purgatory.
Road to Purgatory moet worden opgedragen aan Paul Newman, die in 2008 overleed.
