The cast and crew of "The Fighter" wasted no time in considering a sequel -- and in an exclusive interview with MTV Movies, director David O. Russell stated that he'd like to take a jab at writing the script himself.

"I would do it whenever anyone says they're ready," Russell said. "I'm ready to write it."

Russell stated that the sequel would involve all the original cast, and has a strong possibility of focusing on Micky Ward's epic trio of fights with Arturo Gatti. For the full story, head on over to MTV Movies.
