Although Mark is reportedly angling to star in Five Brothers, there is no word on how much of the original cast will be returning for the sequel. As a matter of fact, little is known about the plot of Five Brothers, which is being kept quiet.
It also remains to be seen whether John Singleton will sign on to direct.
