Hollywood is planning a sequel to "Casablanca"
It's been 70 years since Rick (Humphrey Bogart) say goodbye to Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) and her boarding a plane to the United States, which seemed a definitive end to one of the best films in the history of cinema, "Casablanca". But according to rumors, that plane has a return ticket.
"We'll always have Paris..." and a possible sequel that never came to shoot but at the time was designed and written by one of the writers of "Casablanca", Howard Koch, after with Julius J. And Philip G. Epstein Epstein won an Oscar in 1944 for his screenplay for "Casablanca".
Hollywood remains committed to exposing prequels, sequels and remakes of his greatest hits of all time but this will cost money and ridicule, sometimes in front of millions of people in all cinema screens around the world. Between them, the studies of Warner Bros.
Movie studios have wanted to get back the raincoat and hat that Humphrey Bogart wore in the movie "Casablanca" and put another mythical fashion lines from the movie: "Play it again, Sam". And that's what they plan to do, shoot a sequel to the legendary film.
They say there are coincidences and this seems to be one of those times. As reported by the New York Post, Cass Warner, granddaughter of one of the founders of Warner Bros., came across a script about a possible sequel to the film, in the writer's home in Woodstock between memories among old papers and abandoned, and entitled "Return to Casablanca".
The screenplay was written about 30 years ago and tells the story of Ilsa and Victor Laszlo, her husband, trying to locate Rick after he and Captain Louis Renault to join the resistance to fight against Rommel's forces in North Africa. But do not come alone, as Ilsa discovered she was pregnant. She gave birth to a boy who grew up in the United States. The boy's real father is not Lazslo, but Rick. A big surprise, or so we think.
When the child, named Richard, grows becomes a young guy with hard type traits and a good heart that is very reminiscent of his father Rick. The boy learns the whole truth and burning to know his father, or at least know more about him and his heroic actions as head of the resistance became a legend Rick in Casablanca.
As reported in the newspaper, eighteen months ago film producer initially rejected the proposed "Return to Casablanca", but now could again be interested in the sequel if it comes to finding the right director and has the courage and the healthy trial conduct such a project before taking one of the classics among classics of cinema, given the insistence of one of the grandchildren of Warner Bros.
