In the short span of his career, Chadwick Boseman gave us memorable performances. Be it 42-year-old Jackie Robinson or Black Panther’s T’Challa, the actor has left a legacy and has been a source of inspiration for actors eager for change. But what if we said the deceased actor could have been part of a potential LA Confidential sequel? Stay tuned for an interesting story.
Without a doubt, LA Confidential is one of the most famous neo-black crime thrillers in the world. The film was a commercial and critical success in 1997. Of course, who can forget about getting two Oscars (for Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay). Over the years, the thriller has attracted huge fans, and at the request of the fans, a sequel was planned.
Yes, you read that right! The draft was ready and everything was in line but Warner Bros. he did not agree. Speaking to The Ringer, Brian Helgeland (screenwriter) made a revelation to find out how Russell Crowe and Guy Pearce’s Reunion was organized. Even Chadwick Boseman had to wear a rope for an important character in the police (James Muncie). Brian co-authored the novel with James Ellroy (the author of the LA Confidential novel), which was eventually rejected by Warner Bros.
Brian said, “The studio’s veto caused a decline, one might think it could have ended – like the conclusion of LA Confidential itself. But the rejection is particularly surprising if you consider that 24 years ago the film was one of the most beloved entries of the genre that directors and viewers alike loved: neo-black “.
The film, directed by Curtis Hanson, was distributed by Warner Bros. It earned a whopping $ 127 million against a $ 35 million budget.
