THE PERFECT WEAPON (Titus Paar, 2016) (not produced with DL)

Postby Jox on 16 Nov 2016, 01:14

Apparently VMI Worldwide also tried (and failed) to set up a sequel to Seagal's PERFECT WEAPON with Dolph and Rutger Hauer (in the Johnny Messner and Richard Tyson roles of Condor and Controller)... It's probably their dream project to manage to secure Seagal and Lundgren on the same title.

Director Titus Paar:
I was going to make Perfect Weapon 2: The Uprising where it's full out war but I'll leave that to someone else. Dolph was actually attached first to be Condor, imagain that Seagal VS Lundgren and Rutger Hauer as Controler to complete the Blade Runner homage. But it fell trough.

So THE PERFECT WEAPON was the project with Seagal that Dolph mentioned to me back in January 2015 as he was first attached to be starring in it instead of Johnny Messner...

Swedish director Titus Paar:
Johnny Messner has been making a name for himself as the next action hero; what made him the right choice for the role of Condor?

He has that all American action star feel. He went dark in this one, made Condor a broken man. He was signed on pretty late. I had Dolph Lundgren as Condor at first and wanted to make it a Dolph vs. Seagal movie but it fell through. Then luckily WMI just got a film called Weaponized and we got Johnny through that contact. He´s got everything going for him I think to be the next action star.


And the sequel is out of the question
It’s left open for a sequel; is that in development at all and do you have a potential story in mind?

Indeed. “The Perfect Weapon 2: THE UPRISING” where Seagal goes after the rebels off the grid, full out war. But I won´t make it; love to see someone else take a stab at it, but I’m getting A-list offers now, doesn’t make sense to make PW 2. I’m done with the B-action homages now, one was enough.

Do you know why Dolph backed away from this project?
If he dies....he dies....

It's not necessarily Dolph who backed out (although given the synopsis it probably sounded a bit silly to him), we know Seagal always sabotages deals when he's faced to a potential co-star of his stature and there might be 10 other business reasons as well why this didn't pan out.
