We, like a large portion of the rest of the world, really enjoyed the first “Snabba Cash” -- retitled in English to the less-memorable “Easy Money” -- director Daniel Espinosa’s pulsating Swedish crime film that launched both him and soon-to-be “Robocop” Joel Kinnaman onto our radars. We complimented that film on its “tenacious, shark-like energy” and were cautiously optimistic when its international success warranted a sequel.

Back in 2010, considerable buzz was generated by Daniel Espinosa's crime thriller "Snabba Cash" (also known as "Easy Money") when it premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and stormed its domestic box office. Almost immediately it gained international interest with The Weinstein Company acquiring the distribution rights and Warner Bros picking up the remake rights and wasting little time in attaching Zac Efron to the project. Espinosa cashed in on the success and landed the director's chair for "Safe House," while the film's star Joel Kinnaman snagged a small part in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" remake, nabbed part in the otherwise awful "The Darkest Hour" and also took the lead on AMC's "The Killing."

But what of the films he almost made along the way instead?
