Steven Seagal says he’s still cookin’ up an ‘Under Siege 3’

The man, the myth, the mystique that is Steven Seagal began in 1988′s Above the Law and peaked with 1992’s Under Siege. Now, nearly 20 years after 1995’s Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, the actor wants to reprise his role as Casey Ryback, the former Navy SEAL operator turned chef who became famous for the line “I’m just a cook.”

During a 2014 interview with TBI, here’s what Seagal had to say about his plans for wanting to set Under Siege 3 in Russia:

“It seems like Russia has been Hollywood’s default bad guy forever. I sorta think the opposite. I think that America and Russia should be great allies and great friends. And can be. What I want to do is write a movie, which I’ve sorta already done, where Russian special forces and American special forces work together to combat terrorism.” Seagal continues, “I’m trying to do Under Siege 3, which is the plot that I told you. I’m trying to do some martial arts films in China. I have a lot of different scripts and ideas.”

In another interview with JoBlo, Seagal once again mentioned Under Siege 3: “I’d like to do [another] sequel to Under Siege. I’d like to do Under Siege 3 and everyone wants to see that. We’d love to do that. The reason why we didn’t do it for so many years was because there was a [feud] going on between Warner Bros and – there was a rights dispute I should say. But that’s been cleared up now so we could, in theory, make that.”

I admit, the possibility of an Under Siege 3 is intriguing, but I’m not sure how I feel about Under Siege 3 being a straight-to-video title (even seeing it as a limited release would be sad), which is inevitable, considering Seagal’s track record. Regardless, I’m definitely rooting for it. In the meantime, Seagal has a handful of films that he’s working on (more or less) that include AttritionChina SalesmanContract to KillCypherGunfighter and Four Towers.

Seagal’s latest released film, End of Gun, was recently reviewed by COF’s Zach Nix. His next film, Perfect Weapon, will be hitting Blu-ray on December 6th, 2016.

Updates: On October 5th, 2016 Seagal tweeted: “It’s time. Woodie Mister is starting the script for Under Siege 3.” If you’re unfamiliar with Mister, you’re not alone. Other than two acting credits on imdb.com, the only other project he’s attached to is producer for Above the Law 2, which is another sequel Seagal has been throwing in the air. For now, the best bet is to take any “in development” news with a grain of salt until production crews start packing their bags.

    I love Under Siege 2! The original was great as well, and I can hardly wait for #3. Bring it on, Steven!

    • Kenneth says:

      My friend Steven Segal. has been and is, spiritually aware of this Earth and his existence, AND his fellow human beings.
      His 3rd Under Seige should be entitled: : Under Seige Within”. Because look at what

  2. JOHN ENGLISH says:

    Yes, Under Siege 1 & 2 Are great films, i have both..Its too bad its been 20 years since last we seen of Casey Rybeck, but i am psyched for more. After hearing Steven has been banned from entering the Ukraine, seemingly planning a US3. Well, if that falls through, perhaps Steven could consider
    since he done one on a boat and on a train, maybe he could do one that involves space.
    But whatever he chooses, i just hope it’s worth the wait, i hope he makes it before he turns 70.

    Mr. Seagal needs to lose some weight first

    I’m pretty sure this isn’t going to happen now that his past and current allegations of sex crimes are being brought to light.
