The 2006 CIA historical thriller The Good Shepherd didn't totally wow the critics and I've heard many viewers complain that the movie is too long and not all that interesting. Even so, the Robert DeNiro-directed project did earn an Oscar nod and it boasts a stellar cast.
Now DeNiro is talking sequels — yes, plural. Variety continues:
De Niro said he would like to make two sequels to CIA Cold War drama The Good Shepherd — one bringing the action forward from 1961 to 1989, the other following its hero, Edward Wilson (Matt Damon), up to the present day.
Martin Scorsese will be a producer on the sequels as well.
Do you want to see continuations of Edward Wilson's story? Or was the one Good Shepherd enough?
