The thing that I would say is that I don’t really try to repeat myself. I’ve got so many ideas in my head, I’m just trying to get all these ideas out.”

He did make one caveat: The only thing I’d revisit right now is because of The Five Heartbeats because of the fans.”

Townsend has already revisited The Five Heartbeats in his recent documentary, so perhaps the documentary is one step closer to fans seeing a rebooted Five Heartbeats film. However, we probably should welcome Townsend’s newer projects instead.
