VALHALLA RISING SEQUEL PLANNED


Another day, another Nicolas Winding Refn post. Look, I like his films. And there's been plenty of news on the NWR news of late! I was not expecting a sequel to his somewhat bizarre 2009 thriller mystery adventure drama action mindfuck, but if I had been, I wouldn't have expected it to be set in Tokyo. In the future. Centring on the criminal underworld, a la Drive and Only God Forgives. With Mads Mikkelsen returning as One-Eye, the one-eyed (duh), zero-worded enigmatic Norse warrior who was last seen dead on the East coast of North America in 1000 AD, having escaped his captors in the Scottish Highlands. In the future. Alive again. In Tokyo. #upforit
