Wow really hope this comes off Mongol is still one of my favourite world cinema titles and I've always hoped the much talked about Trilogy would come to light.

"Russian writer-director-producer Sergei Bodrov and boutique studio Cinestaan Film Company are teaming on “Mongol II — The Legend,” Bodrov’s sequel to the 2008 Academy Award nominated Genghis Khan epic “Mongol,” which earned $5.7 million at the U.S. box office for Picturehouse, and $25.6 million worldwide.

Paul Hudson, who is selling the film for C Intl. Sales, will introduce the project to potential co-producers and buyers at Cannes.

Set from 1172 to 1206, and tracing Genghis Khan’s formative years and dramatic rise, the original “Mongol” boasted “breathtaking landscapes, bloody battles, and unique traditions,” Variety said in its review.

Co-written with the film’s producer Eric Nazarian, “Mongol II — The Legend” focuses on Genghis Khan’s securing his legacy, crossing two continents to defeat Central Asian emperor Shah Mohammed, opening the Silk Road and choosing his successor, a decision which determined the next three hundred years of his empire and the fate of half of the world, the film’s synopsis reads."
