The creative team and original stars from cult movie La Confidential are in talks to reteam for a sequel to the movie, going head-to-head with another sequel starring George Clooney. Director Joe Carnahan is also directing a follow-on to the film based on author JAMES ELLROY's book WHITE JAZZ. According to entertainment website TMZ.com, another sequel is being planned by the film's original director Curtis Hanson. Hanson's version wouldn't rely on the plot of White Jazz and would instead pick-up where LA Confidential ended. The sequel would reunite original stars Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce and Kim Basinger, who won a Best Supporting Oscar for her role in LA Confidential.
