You may not recognize James Sallis' name, but you no doubt saw the adaptation of his 2005 novel, Drive, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and featuring Ryan Gosling in the role of the brooding Driver. Twitch is reporting that Drive fans of both sources may be in for a treat (depending what camp you're in) with a sequel to the neo-noir story about a Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a getaway motorist.
Driven is expected to publish in April 2012, and Poisoned Pen Press released this little teaser to whet your appetite: "Six years later — Phoenix. Out of nowhere someone wants Driver dead. Who? Why? Big mistake ..." Of course, this means fans of Refn and Gosling's collaboration could be seeing another installment after the duo complete work on Only God Forgives and Logan's Run.
If Refn and Gosling aren't involved, the project could be a huge disaster given our penchant for Gosling's embodiment of the character and Refn's skilled handling of the material. Do you see room for more Driver on the big screen? Could another actor just as easily get behind the steering wheel, or is it Goose fo' life?

Ryan Gosling, Drive
Big, YES!!! Bring on DRIVE II...'it was on the edge quiet-storm letal, Actor Ryan Gosling was fantastic as the Driver w/no name. Hopefully, he'll go back and get the girl and her son...'and please don't kill anyone of them off. They deserve a pretty Life. Lookin' forward to DRIVE II!
Type Corrections/Sorry I'm a perfectionist.
1 - Quiet-storm lethal (not letal).
2 - They deserve a better (opps, said pretty) Life.
I hope not this was the worst film I saw in 2011
Sorry to hear that Braydon and although it did have silent moments it was filled w/an edgy suspence. It was lethal electric charge...'somethings dangerous is gonna go down and it did in a vivid lethal way. Excellent film DRIVE.
