War Of The Roses sequel planned, writer hired

Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito united for War Of The Roses. And now a movie sequel is on the way...

The current Hollywood trend of the belated sequel continues (which we wrote about here), with the news that a sequel is being planned to 1989's The War Of The Roses. The first film was directed by Danny DeVito, who starred alongside Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. It told of a marriage that wasn't the friendliest, and the new film, based on the novel by William Adler, is going to pick up the story of their children.

Cunningly entitled The War Of The Roses: The Children, no director or cast have been linked with the project yet. But it does have a writer. Relative newcomer Alex McAulay has been hired to pen the screenplay for the new film, which will see said children having 'tricky' marriages of their own. More as we get it...
