Simon West - Con Air Sequel In The Works

Simon West is desperate to make a 'Con Air' sequel.

The filmmaker is set to team up with the 1997 action movie's star Nicolas Cage on new project 'Medallion' and has vowed to use their time together to convince the actor to sign up for the second film.

He said: "I have a couple of dream projects I want. 'Con Air 2', I'd like to do. It'd be great. It's a matter of getting everybody together. There's so many people involved and it's about getting everybody to agree. But I'm going to bring it up to Nic. I'm going to put a bug in his ear about it. If the two of us want to do it, we'll go after the others."

As well as working on 'Con Air', Simon - whose latest venture 'The Mechanic' stars Jason Statham and Donald Sutherland and is released this week - has a "stack" of other projects he wants to work on, including a fantasy movie based on the life and work of surrealist artist Salvador Dali.

He added: "There's also 'Dali', which is a big CG/fantasy thing about Salvador Dali that I want to do. I've just got a little stack of them on my shelf that I'm trying to work my way through. A huge children's fantasy film. Hopefully I'll soon be working my way through that stack."
