Edward Burns - Burns Set To Return To The Brothers Mcmullen

Actor/director Edward Burns is working on a sequel to his popular 1995 comedy The Brothers Mcmullen.
Burns wrote, produced, directed and starred in the project as he was trying to break into the entertainment industry and the family drama, about three Irish Catholic MCMullen brothers from Long Island, New York, became a big hit in the independent film circuit, winning top honours at the Sundance Film Festival, the Independent Spirit Awards and the Deauville Film Festival.
The Saving Private Ryan star admits he's remained good pals with co-stars Jack Mulcahy and Mike MCGlone ever since, and he's keen to have a second installment of The Brothers MCMullen ready for release in 2014.
Burns tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "I've kind of always stayed in touch with Jack Mulcahy and Mike MCGlone from The Brothers MCMullen. Your lives get more complicated and you have kids so you don't get to hang out as much as you do but MCMullen was such an amazing chapter in all of our lives. To go from a pack of nobodies who had never been in front of a camera before to all of a sudden that film gave all of us a career. So I think we all feel kind of connected to that.
"I've started to sit down and outline a sequel to MCMullen. It'll be 20 years later so I (have) three more years to basically write the screenplay, but I think I've got my story down."
