Paramount is developing a sequel to the John Singleton-directed Four Brothers, to be titled Five Brothers.
Mark Wahlberg is looking to star and hatched the sequel idea with original writers David Elliot and Paul Lovett, who are writing the script. Lorenzo Di Bonaventura is back to produce.
In the 2005 release, the Mercer brothers – hotheaded Bobby (Wahlberg), hard-edged Angel (Tyrese Gibson), family man and businessman Jeremiah (André Benjamin), and hard rocking Jack (Garrett Hedlund) – reunite to take the matter of their adoptive mother’s death into their own hands. As they track down the killer, they quickly realize that their old ways of doing business have new consequences.
Plot details for the follow-up are being kept under wraps.
