Have you seen the classic poker movie Rounders from 1998? If no, then you really have missed out on the best poker movie ever done (if you ask me). If you have seen Rounders and always hoped for a follow-up, your dreams will most probably come true within a near future.
In an interview with a poker site, David Levien, one of the writers of Rounders, says that he and the other writer Brian Ko[...] Read more » Rounders 2 - soon a reality?

rounders is definetly a good movie, but will they not ruin it with a follow up like most movies, make a really good first one and then just make one to make more money...hopefully it will be as good as the first one but most likely not....
WOW! This is great news! I friggin loved that movie!!
21 was made much more recently and had a HUGE budget. The thing about Rounders is that it's nitty gritty real-life stuff. Of course 21 is based on a true story, but you know what I mean, right? It's right there on the streets of New York and I think it tells a story that could be yours or my story. 21..how many people go to Vegas and win 100's of thousands and get chased by oldschool casino henchmen??! Great movie, but not as much of a personal connection for me.
I'm sure Rounders 2 will be great! It has been 11 years, after all. Movie production and directional skillz have improved over the years, as have the actors. I think they will make a stellar movie!

Never heard about this movie, it hasnt been much talked about in Portugal, but i will try to get it. If its about poker life, i have got to see if it talks about the really important things in the game, like in life. The only movie i ever watched that made references to poker was Maverick and it was just a scene.

I really liked rounders, I thought that it was a decent depiction of poker at least, 21 was horrible though, not only the acting but the script on top of that. In the entire movie they hardly focus for a seccond on the math of counting cards, instead they just keep going on and on about their code for telling how fat the deck is.
