Sequel For James Sallis’ Drive Coming In The Spring

Nicholas Winding Refn‘s Drive has some genuine pleasures, but none of them seem particularly literary in nature. Nevertheless, the film is an adaptation of a novel, and a greatly acclaimed one at that.

James Sallis, the writer of Drive has now completed Driven, a sequel, and the first details have arrived at Lit Reactor (via Twitch). Here’s a curious little blurb and the cover:

Six years later – Phoenix. Out of nowhere someone wants Driver dead. Who? Why? Big mistake…

I understand that the original book was fleshed out and restructured somewhat on its way to the screen, but I don’t know if there are were any significant plot changes. As a result, I don’t know if Driven would make for a good sequel to the Drive film – but with all of the acclaim, the film’s instant cult status and the rocketing popularity of star Ryan Gosling, I’m sure somebody somewhere has already had Sallis and his publishers on the telephone.
