Would You Want to See Sequels to The Good Shepherd?

The 2006 CIA historical thriller The Good Shepherd didn't totally wow the critics and I've heard many viewers complain that the movie is too long and not all that interesting. Even so, the Robert DeNiro-directed project did earn an Oscar nod and it boasts a stellar cast.

Now DeNiro is talking sequels — yes, plural. Variety continues:

De Niro said he would like to make two sequels to CIA Cold War drama The Good Shepherd — one bringing the action forward from 1961 to 1989, the other following its hero, Edward Wilson (Matt Damon), up to the present day.

Martin Scorsese will be a producer on the sequels as well.

Do you want to see continuations of Edward Wilson's story? Or was the one Good Shepherd enough?

Other. Never seen it. It is one of those Netflix movies that never gets bumped up to the top of the list.

Oh Please No! I hated that movie! It was confusing and the most boring thing I've ever watched! I was really disappointed and I think making a sequel would be a huge mistake! No one would see it just because the first one was awful!

I respected Good Shepherd for what it was, an attempt to explain the life of one of the original CIA members. The movie wasn't good and there's no reason for another one. The execs are probably trying to find a way for Damon and Jolie to be seen together again.

No, I saw The Good Shepherd and it had some good moments, but overall it was very boring. I love Angelina but her role wasn't very big and the ending was terrible.

I'm with stephly on this one: Not sure that we need two new films but seeing what happens to Wilson from 1961 to the present, if thoughtfully done, could be quite interesting. Even though the first film was long, I really did like it.

I'm with hunterme. I liked the first film OK, but it's not crying out for a sequel or anything.

the first one was pretty much torture.

I really don't see the need for a sequel to this film. I might be wrong, but it just seemed like the film isn't the kind that needs another part to it.

*****SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT*****The sons wife got killed and I didn't like that. Even though I love me some Robert De'Niro he can direct another movie.

I'm not sure it needs to be done in two separate movies, but bringing Wilson forward through the Cold War would be really interesting if done well. Not just a thriller, but a more thoughtful look at how things evolved.
