Natalie Portman talks The Professional 2

— Posted by Rodney

Its long been the stance of Luc Besson that his classic contract killer film The Professional would not be sequeled with him involved. The film starred a very young Natalie Portman who is now on record saying she would be up for a sequel, but only if Besson directs.

MTV says:

Years have passed, director Luc Besson has gone on record as refusing to helm a second installment, and nothing seems likely to change. Portman herself told us recently that she’s even declined to read the script.

“I have never read it because Luc won’t direct it himself, and so I’m only interested if he [directs],” she said while at the Toronto Film Festival promoting “Black Swan.”

I think that this would make a great story if they did sequel The Professional catching up with her character so much later, but I agree that Luc Besson should do it, and seeing as how he still says he won’t… it wont happen.

If they sequel it without the same cast or director? The Professional: Havana Nights

  1. Defense and “CounterPunch teams are preparing to react.  This sequence took 5 minutes in real time.  This occurs hundreds of times a day.  It is rare to lose a US Ambassador or an envoy…a very rare mistake indeed.  
    Portman, the uninteresting secretary now discernible but still disguised as an unattractive and hardly noticeable human punctuation to the mechanism of the NSA, prepares to head home for the evening, and her departure is noticed only by the card swipe.

  2. The NSA agents previously on screen are paged to the briefing.  Key points screened from the processed intel have red-lighted; meticulously programmed screening computers project with an above average near-certainty an attack on overseas US officials is forthcoming.  Now the agents will debrief by a committee of high ranking military officers, psychologists, etc. and this will be strategically uplinked.

  3. Two NSA Operatives walk by a dowdy secretary, dumping SD cards and papers, expense receipts and ask her to brief their Section Chief.  They head to separate offices leaving her to sort the mess.  I have definite ideas on who should play these three.  She proceeds to batch the collected data into a presentation via ordinary software and specialized decoding programs.  The sequence of pictures about a Hamas splinter cell begin to shape into usable intelligence from this capable woman, which is prepared for a briefing and Lotus’d to the Chief (Hackman?).  He sits in a spacious room with 50 monitors, partitioned by sectors–hot zones–surrounded by Assistant Chief’s and supporting staff– and collates the information on these screens as computers direct each packet by pertinence.  Libya, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, China, Turkey and numerous other locations under satellite, drone, and operative surveillance coalesce and are constantly updated.

  4. hey jeff, lets get gary oldman in there. well, seeing that it ends up that mathilda has a deal with tony. why not stretch it out. mathildas been moonlighting as a hitgirl. tony mysteriously dies. some twists and turns. she finds out stansfield survived the explosion and is back for revenge. too back she has a family stansfield can mess with. but little does stansfield know, that her family has a bit of skills of their own. just brainstorming.

  5. I think that they should jmake a 2nd sequel because it ended without telling nor showing the skill and abiluity that mathilda has they shown us that he had thought mathilda lots but we would like to see that skill in action and who wouldnt want to see that much ass kicking

  6. (O_o) (This is my version of the plot in my twisted lil mind…lol)…Matilda continues her education at the girl’s school under an assumed name w/the help of the head mother who takes her in & raises her as her own. Now a grown woman…Matilda works at the school & is highly respected & is engaged to be wed. Her past life long since behind her now & practically forgotten about….(O_O) UNTIL…1 day a highly trained lil girl seeks her out…the Grand Daughter of Leon. Previous to his death…Leon had spoken of a recent relationship w/a woman gone bad which unbenounced to anyone had produced a love child-(the real reason Leon cared so much for Matilda)! Leon’s family back in Italy has been raising the little girl after her mothers death & upon learning of Grand Father Leon’s untimely & treacherous demise from old family folklore…has been grooming her into the family business since early childhood & it’s her greatest wish to someday seek revenge against her father’s murderers!!! The child comes to America & quickly seeks out Tony & swiftly smokes him, but not before she learns from his begging death pleads of the existence of Matilda! Curious…she seeks her out. The meeting doesn’t go well & quickly gets heated & Matilda gets the eerie feeling that once alone…she was lucky to have left with her life! Leon’s daughter starts a hellstorm of trouble which eventually leads back to Matilda getting reluctantly dragged back into it & in the process her new fiancee is killed which quickly re-sparks old long since dormant killer instincts in her to once again reemerge…& and together as a team….(O_O) Absolute HELL & CARNAGE ensues!!!!

    • (O_o) I’m sorry…it wasn’t so recent of a relationship & I meant to say “against her Grandfather’s murderers.”. I also said Leon’s daughter & I meant to say Granddaughter.
