Variety reports that producers Richard Rionda Del Casto and Gilles Thompson revealed that they had teamed up to begin work on a new film called Dobermann 2: Arm Wrestle.
Black Swan star Cassel is said to be in negotiations to reprise his role as the criminal mastermind Dobermann, while Tchéky Karyo is likely to return as his nemesis Inspector Crisitini.
The producers made no announcement as to whether Italian actress Monica Bellucci would reprise her role as Dobermann's deaf girlfriend Nat the Gypsy.
Crime author Joël Houssin, who penned the script for Dobermann, is also onboard the project.
Dobermann 2: Arm Wrestle is expected to begin principal photography later this summer for an expected release in early 2012.
