It's been over ten years since the Renny Harlin action flick The Long Kiss Goodnight hit theaters. But if Samuel L. Jackson and Harlin have their way, a sequel could hit theaters sometime in the near future. MTV's movie blog spoke with Jackson about working with Harlin on some possible script ideas and Jackson says, "We sort of have a development project now for The Long Kiss Goodnight 2, we're talking to writers, you know, getting it together." The original film was centered on a seemingly meek and mild housewife (Geena Davis) who turns out to be a bad ass super-agent suffering from amnesia who is up against some shadowy government types. Jackson was along for the ride as a hard-drinking private eye.

The film was the second attempt for Harlin to turn his then-wife Davis into a female action hero, the first being the less than stellar pirate flick Cutthroat Island. The two films didn't seem to help their relationship and the couple were divorced in 1998. But it doesn't look like Davis is figuring into Harlin and Jackson's plans for a sequel. "Actually, we're thinking, you know, the little girl [Samantha's daughter, Caitlin] is grown up now and possibly got some skills passed onto her by her mom," Jackson says. And if that wasn't enough of a hint, he even spells out that the actual idea is "Her mom gets killed and we want to find out who did it." It looks like they will have plenty to talk about while they are working together on Harlin's latest thriller Curve.
