Regarding The Departed sequel, his idea for the film is to set it before, during, and after the action of the first film, with all the actors coming back. The middle section of the sequel would be actions that take place during the original Departed, but aren’t onscreen in the original.
He says Warner Bros. wanted to see a synopsis of The Departed sequel, but he doesn’t do synopses or pitches. If Warner Bros. can come up with the money for all the actors to come back, he says they could do the sequel at anytime. But he doesn’t know if the film will ever happen.
