“Yeah. Yeah. So, I’ve always wanted to do three because what, the second one’s going to be more with – we’re going to integrate his brother into the story,” said O’Connor. “So there’ll be more screen time for Bernthal in the second one. And then the third movie’s going to be, I call it, ‘Rain Man on steroids.’ The third movie is going to be the two brothers, this odd couple. The third one is going be a buddy picture.”
