In what may be one of the most groundbreaking announcements to hit the fly fishing industry since the release of the squirmy wormy, Columbia Pictures has just dropped the first teaser poster for the sequel to the 1992 film, “A River Runs Through it”. The project is titled, “A River Runs Two It”, and will be set to hit theatres and streaming services as early as the Summer of 2021.
Little is known about the upcoming release besides the return of award-winning director, Robert Redford, who will be heading the project, as well as a new ensemble of cast members such as Zach Efron, Dave Franco, and Seth Rogan. According to our sources, the popular trio will be playing the characters of the unmentioned nephews of the late Paul McClean, who will be returning to their Uncle’s home river to pay homage to the originator of the shadow cast. Further character casting has been left up to speculation, but no additional talent has either been confirmed or denied by studios.
In a quote from Mr. Redford himself, who will be taking on a producer role alongside his directing credit, he stated the following:
“It was time to give this old movie a new coat of paint. The original film doesn’t even begin to scrape the surface of Euro-nymphing or the life of Fly-fishing influencers whatsoever, and quite frankly that strikes me as a problem. [A river Runs Two It] will be a movie for the people of today’s fly-fishing culture.”
While sources are still clamoring to dig up more information, the Rogan-Efron-Franco trio has released a small tease that the movie will have a similar “taste” to their 2014 release, “The neighbors”, and will serve as a “satirical, edgy take on the sport of fly-fishing”.
We are personally very excited to see what this new movie has in store for audiences, and will be scratching at the door to learn more of when we can finally get more details. According to sources, a trailer is scheduled to be dropping on June 31st, 2021. So, mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details as they come!
