Director Jeremy Kagan
once said of this movie: "'The Sting II' is inspired by and is an expansion of the first 'Sting' rather than a continuation. The principal characters of Fargo Gondorff and Jake Hooper are based on two real-life con-men and are totally different from the original . . . 'The Sting II' has more comedy and the nature of the con is more intriguing. Now the con men themselves are being conned." See more
