Oh man! He should DEFINITELY do this!
We love the first one!
Author Elmore Leonard, who wrote the novel that eventually became the 1996 film Out Of Sight, has reportedly penned its sequel called Road Dogs, and recently revealed that he is attempting to line up original actor George Clooney to reprise his role as bank-robber Jack Foley for the new feature!
‘Clooney is one of the few actors who can deliver the words exactly the way that I heard them when I wrote them. I’ve sent the new book to George. The role is the same guy as Out Of Sight. I don’t know if he’s read it yet though.’
In the sequel, Foley gets out of prison and travels to California, where he gets caught up in a plot between a crime boss and his fortune-teller girlfriend!
Sounds pretty inneresting! But we'd be bummed if Jennifer Lopez didn't at least come back for a cameo appearance!
We LOVED her in the original!
What do U think?? Would U want to see a sequel to Out of Sight??

Sounds like this show is def gonna be around for a while.
TNT has renewed their crime drama Southland for a 10-episode fourth season.
Not surprising, given that this season averaged 2.9 million viewers, which is a 6% increase from last year.
Guess we'll see if the show does EVEN better in its fourth season.
Also should be interesting to see how TNT's new crime drama Perception fares. It stars Will & Grace's Eric McCormack, who's been somewhat MIA for a while now.
Will U tune in for TNT's crime dramas next season?

First the John Cusack movie and now this?! What's going on?
Now that pilot season is well underway, we've gotten word that ABC has apparently ordered a crime drama in which famed horror writer Edgar Allen Poe solves mysteries!
According to the official synopsis:
“Crime procedural following Edgar Allan Poe as the world’s very first detective, using unconventional methods to investigate dark mysteries in 1840s Boston.”
Depending on the direction this one takes, it could be kind of dark and gritty, in a From Hell kind of way, in which case we'd certainly approve!
But no talking raven sidekicks, guys! LOLz!
Check out some more recently picked-up pilots…AFTER THE JUMP!

Fans of TNT's crime drama The Closer, rejoice!
The network has reportedly ordered additional episodes of the Kyra Sedgwick series, AND it looks like they'll either continue the series after Kyra leaves OR they might create a Sedgwick-less spin-off show.
As far as the final season is concerned, once they get the OK from Sedgwick, they'll be adding 6 episodes to make it a 21 episode season, after which they're looking to make a 9 episode post-Kyra order for The Closer…or a spin-off.
Guess we'll see what they end up doing with the show. If they can bring back the Closer writers, maybe they could make a quality spin-off, but we're admittedly skeptical.
Are U excited about post-Kyra plans for The Closer? Or should they end it after this season?
