Vladimir Menshov is thinking about a new film project, namely the sequel of his much-spoken-of and Oscar-winning lyrical comedy Moskva slezam ne verit (aka Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears) (1980).
As the director says, there is some entrepreneur who is willing to finance the film under the title "Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears - 2". Mr. Menshov has already given his tentative agreement.
“I am pleased that the picture is so popular that it is even becoming a legend - Vladimir Menshov said - It is nice that people are waiting for it to be continued”.
Москва слезам не верит went on general release in 1979 and still remains a cult movie. After all, the potential viewers are bound to be attracted to the same-name would-be sequel.
