Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Universal 1440 Entertainment has quietly released Inside Man: Most Wanted, the sequel to 2006’s Inside Man starring Denzel Washington and Spike Lee. Neither have involvement in this sequel.
The film is now available on Netflix as a licensed title, while also being available on other digital platforms (meaning it’s not a Netflix original).
MJ Bassett is the director, and Brian Bassey is the writer.
Here’s the description: A suspenseful heist thriller starring Aml Ameen (The Maze Runner) and Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul), Inside Man: Most Wanted is a gripping game of cat and mouse that will keep you guessing until the very end. An NYPD hostage negotiator (Ameen) forms an unlikely team with an FBI agent (Seehorn) to save hostages in a skillfully orchestrated copycat crime at the Federal Reserve Bank, led by a ruthlessly cunning bank robber (Roxanne McKee). With time working against them and innocent lives on the line, they must put their professional differences aside before they get trapped in a twisted web of lies.
There was prior sequel talk in 2008 and 2009 with Lee returning to direct and the cast reprising their roles, but nothing ever came of it.
Ameen recently starred in Idris Elba’s feature directorial debut, Yardie, and is making his feature directorial debut soon with A Night Worth Living.
