Although I also think that the character Ronson was very cool.

You know it was designed as a franchise for Ronson to return in several adventures, a second script called TUMBLING DICE was written before DIAMOND DOGS was filmed and had all these production problems that made the film what it is whereas the script was had so much more story, twitsts and characterization to it. At some point Dolph wanted to direct the TUMBLING DICE but he soon dropped it after the result of DD... A sequel to DARK ANGEL was in development at MGM in the mid-90s but had nothing to do with Caine, only the alien element...

Joshua Tree 2!

It will never happen, the first movie barely got released. But that's all set to change soon! :lol:

I had huge hopes for Diamond Dogs when it came out, even during filming the pictures looked pretty good, if a little amateurish. But the end result is something that a group of reasonably talented college students could have made. A huge shame because the locations were unique for a Dolph movie. It's also a shame the snide producers didn't want to pay for D-man's cut which would probably have had elevated results. And naturally I'm disappointed that Tumbling Dice didn't make it out of development hell because the plot sounded good, as did the original concept for Diamond Dogs. It sounded like Men of War meets Indiana Jones.

As for a sequel. Hmmm. I would actually like to see another Defender, the gun fights were great in that movie and so much was done with so little. Icarus is another one that had potential for a follow-up. But those are DTV movies so the likelihood of such a thing happening is pretty small. The Expendables 3, obviously. Make Dolph go bad again and give us a re-match between him and Stallone - only thing I would even consider bringing Dolph back for, he's wasted a little as comic-relief. And he can be the villain and be the comic relief I am sure.

Joshua Tree, (Army of One 2 sounds ridiculous hahahaha, that would make it an army of twelve,) has great potential just because the original was so badass. Obviously I'd love another Universal Soldier sequel. Maybe not a sequel, or a remake, just like, an alternative dimension/universe/idea. Hyams could come up with something, if he isn't too busy. A DTV Silent Trigger - directed by Mulcahy or Dolph and with another reasonably known figure alongside or as the baddie.

And finally, it would be great to see a Dark Angel sequel. Mainly because again the original was so badass but because I think a movie that cheesy would fit in modern times, if it was done with the ultimate sense of irony. Failing that, I reckon it could be turned into a weird sort of horror, making the villain more like the alien from "ALIENS" and having it be a more sort of End of Days type affair but with more shocks/gore/scary teeth and shit. Also SILT, but Brandon sadly is no longer here. Another shame.

I actually liked diamond dogs especially the locations, i mean how many movies have we seen dolph make in China. i would like to see ronson back but with dolph directing and full control of the movie.

Also Missionary Man 2 or The Mechanik 2 characters back would be cool to see again.

That's another one that was actually announced but never saw the light of day with the production company selling their assets to a company that only wanted to do TV. Dolph even said he was up for it, then lost interest and was disappointed by the end product and how it was released I believe...

I read somewhere that Dolph's never seen the reboots. I think that if he saw what the 2004 movie tone was like and read the Garth Ennis scripted comics, he would find it is all a lot more grittier and realistic than his film and the books around the 88 and 89 era. Seeing as he gravitates towards old school revenge films in the tone of Mechanik, this might fit now.

I think Dolph is done with the character (and isn't too fond of the fact it's based on a comic book) and would rather do another piece in the same vein than a reprise of the Punisher character.

Another Men Of War would be interesting, I think it would be a really cool idea to see Nick being unwillingly dragged back into the warfare after leaving it behind in the last film.
