Andrew Divoff Would Love to Return as the Djinn in 'Wishmaster 5'

With the recent release of the Wishmaster Blu-Ray Collection hitting shelves, the guys over at GeekAdelphia were lucky enough to interview the original Djinn himself Andrew Divoff, who played the evil villain in both Wishmaster 1 and 2. Divoff is very open to reprising his iconic role for a fourth sequel, how cool would that be?

Divoff on having one wish:

Well, you know what, if I had one I might as well go ahead and say it. Wishmaster 5. I will answer the lingering question, I would love to do it again. But whether it is me or not I think the franchise has a lot of life left in it.

Interestingly, Divoff also revealed that he once presented his own script for Wishmaster 3:

Well, all I will say is at the time; we agreed to go our separate ways. I had actually written number three and presented my script. I was a little too well, how should I say, overshooting the mark with what could be expected from special effects at some of the things that were included in my script; like gargoyles on buildings coming to life and coming down into the street and that sort of thing. That would have been, as we had discussed, the budget for that one outweighed the rest of the films.

When asked if he would spill some beans on the situation:

Yeah, it was called Wishmaster: The Third Millennium. It was written right around 1999 and 2000 and it was basically, you know in anticipation of Y2K and all of that. You’ll remember that was a bit of a panic in the day. There was an American warship in Asia and it is hit by a missile, and all hell breaks loose. Incidentally, there is a meeting going on at the UN and monsters come to life right there and go through the crowd and start ripping it up.

What do you guys think? Would you like to see Andrew Divoff return as the Djinn?
