    Any reason why the director of the first movie isnt making the second one? He did a good enough job of making a decent action movie.

    I’m really encouraged seeing Creighton and Katrin getting their work recognized by the public. I’ve known Creighton for almost 30 years and a more dedicated writer would be hard to find. Congratulations!
