How did you end up writing a sequel to Drive?

One day my agent Vicky Bijur called. The producers were asking if there’d be a sequel to Drive. Of course not, I harrumphed—being an artiste and all. I hung up the phone and sat there with the image of a woman leaning against a wall, bleeding out. I wrote the first page and was hooked.

Apparently James Sallis, author of the book ‘Drive,’ has written a sequel.

Meanwhile, Ryan Gosling totes saved a woman from being hit by a taxi Tuesday evening. (Related: Ryan Gosling memes)
