Focus Films Reneges on Eastern Promises 2

As recently as June, we posted that David Cronenberg was returning to direct Eastern Promises 2, starring Viggo Mortensen and possibly Vincent Cassel.  While things looked to be moving ahead in a positive direction only a short while ago, the production has taken a turn for the worse (or better if you weren't looking forward to the sequel).  Apparently, the decision has come down from the Focus Features studio to scrap the project, even though production was scheduled to begin in October.  Hit the jump to hear the explanation on the about face from Cronenberg himself.  In a recent interview with The Playlist for Cronenberg's film Cosmopolis, starring Robert Pattinson, Cronenberg made the following comments on the state of Eastern Promises 2 when asked about his upcoming films: "It was supposed to be 'Eastern Promises 2.'
