Originally I started making this list thinking of a few movies that I thought it would be cool to see a sequel of. But after I thought about it for a while, I think that the following films would be cool to have a sequel, but probably shouldn’t. Why do i say that you may ask? Simple! Hollywood has a bad track record for destroying films that are sequels. To be honest, none of the following films should have a sequel, but it is fun to think what it could be.
Yeah, I know we had Escape From L.A. but that just wasn’t enough for me. Could you imagine Snake Plisken with today’s technology, and gadgets? I know there were some talks a few years ago about a remake, but without Kurt Russell on board it would be a pointless attempt.
Christine is one film that truly deserved a sequel, however we all know that a sequel would be horrible. The film was set up perfect for a sequel, remember the ending? I could see a sequel being something like Trucks, where a whole herd of ware-cars go on a killing rampage. I know, probably would wind up being totally lame, but worth the thought anyways.
This is one film that I was actually afraid to post. Why? Because I don’t want to be responsible for putting the idea into anyone’s head to make a sequel. An attempt to make a sequel to The Big Lebowski would be suicide. There were some talks of a Big Lebowski 2 a few years back, but let’s hope it stays that way. If the film were to be made it would have to be a prequel, seeing as how I dont think a sequel would be possible. Wouldn’t it be fun to follow the “Little” Lebowski?
I don’t know of any possible way to make a sequel to Fear and Loathing without it being exactly the same. Perhaps if there was more drinking and more drugs it would be possible, but I just don’t see it happening. Oh wait, it is happening. There is a film being produced called Rum Diary. Rum Diary is based off of the first book written by Hunter S. Thompson. According to IMDB the film will be released sometime in 2009, but I for one woldn’t bet on it.
I know they tried to claim Idocracy as a sequel, but Idiocracy had nothing to do with Office Space, not even close. I would love nothing more than to see Milton come back and destroy another company, or to see another fax machine beat down!
You know, looking back on my list I am thinking that maybe I should have made a list of movies that shouldn’t have a sequel. Maybe I will make that list next week.
But in the meantime, what films do you guys think need a sequel? And please, don’t say 300.
