If there is one movie in the past few years this writer feels was underrated and dismissed too easily, it's Robert De Niro's 2006 effort "The Good Shepherd." Running way ahead of more critically acclaimed fare like "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," De Niro's film was an equally cold and sober look at the spy game, which quietly but effectively explored the moral and emotional toll it takes. For a while, he had been talking up a sequel -- and was even dreaming of a trilogy -- but considering the film cost about $80 million, only grossed $59 million domestically and topped out around $100 million internationally, it's no surprise Universal wasn't in a hurry. But it seems the project hasn't left his desk, and now has found some intriguing new life.
