Vince out for Underbelly 2
Vince reckons he's out for Underbelly 2 but is crossing his fingers for Underbelly 3.
No surprises here, Vince Colosimo is the latest Underbelly actor to rule himself out of the sequel, being prepared by Screentime for the Nine Network.
He told Moviehole his part won’t factor into the storyline of the next series.
“The next instalment is ’75 to ’85,” he said. “Then, next year, they might do ’85 to ’95 – and the character I play will come into it again. So I’m not in this next one, but if they get the all clear to do it, I’ll be in the next one”.
A large proportion of the sequel is said to be based in Sydney’s King’s Cross area, as well as depicting events surrounding the 1977 murder of anti-marijuana campaigner Don Mackay from Griffith.
Other actors said to be out of contention include Les Hill and Damian Walshe-Howling, currently signed to Seven. Rodger Corser and Callan Mulvey are also signed to TEN’s Rush.
Production is slated for October 13 to December 19th.
Colosimo will next appear on the upcoming SBS drama Carla Cametti, PD.
