In an interview with Leicester Square TV at the London Hong Kong Film Week, Infernal Affairs writer and director Alan Mak thinks that a second ‘The Departed’ movie could be on the way but no news yet as to whether Martin Scorsese would return to direct. Mak wrote the screenplay for the original movie, Infernal Affairs / Mou gaan dou on which The Departed is based.

In the interview, Mak admits he has been approached by some American companies to do a sequel to the 2006 movie which starred Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg, Jack Nicholson, Ray Winstone, Martin Sheen and Alec Baldwin to name but a few! It came away with four Oscars at the 2007 awards ceremony which would explain why these American companies may be lining up for a sequel.

I guess we’ll have to wait and see but it sounds like it’s on the cards to happen. Check out the interview below in full and tell us your thoughts in the comments section.
