Sallis has signaled. Will Refn follow?
DRIVE II: LITERARY BOOGALOO
Both makes total and zero sense, given the ending of the book. The last paragraph or so of Sallis' novel is one of my favorites in recent memory, and I don't really think there's need for a book sequel. But I'll read it anyway.
If all the original parties are involved, I'd be down for a sequel. Then again, I get the impression that I'm one of the few people who was convinced the Driver wasn't driving to his death at the end of the first one, so I buy the "new town, new people to hammer" schtick.
Indeed, especially since I've come across at least SIX different interviews with him mentioning it. Joke or not, he's obviously considered the idea.
