Sad to say, Conan the Barbarian already has a sequel. Oy, I wish it didn't.
Memento II: Forget Me Not
I'm pretty sure someone at SyFy is on the phone right now trying to get the rights to that Jurassic Park IV script.
I'm decidedly pro a Serenity sequel, particularly if it finally gives us answers to the Inara questions still left open by the series/movie/comic--was never answered why such a high-tier companion would agree to be on Serenity. (That said, if we could bring one character back from the dead, would be appreciated. He's a leaf on the wind!)
That is WAY too highbrow, and probably too pricy, for Syfy. But if Roger Corman could figure out how to make it with dinocrocs instead of regular dinos, then you might have something.
First one I thought of when I saw McWeeny's original tweet the other day was Unbreakable, so I'm glad to see that made the list. I'd absolutely be there for a Buckaroo Banzai sequel as well, and I love the idea of updating Last Starfighter. As much as I like the concept of joining Joe Hallenbeck on another Last Boy Scout adventure, I don't see how that works twenty years later (you'd have to lose his daughter and ex-wife as meaningful characters -- though I suppose the daughter could be the McGuffin this time -- and Hallenbeck couldn't possibly still reek of the mediocrity and failure that defined his character in the original). Wayans, who was at his peak in the original, isn't nearly capable of playing the same guy again.
Man alive, I can't express how delightfully bad Asylum's Almighty Thor was the other night.
Also left open (from the series more than the movie) are questions about Book's past. Apparently they are resolved in a graphic novel written or at least plotted by Whedon, but I haven't read it. Of course, they'd be hard to answer in a sequel, given the events of Serenity.
I can't believe nobody's pushing for "The Whole 11 Yards."
Come to think of it, the best play for Corman would be to "freely adapt" the JP4 script into a Sharktopus sequel, since -- SPOILER ALERT! -- we've already established that Sharktopus can walk on land with its tentacles.
Depends. Is Amanda Peet available?
They are resolved in the graphic novel "Serenity: The Shepherd's Tale," written by Joss and Zach, which establishes that yes, Book does have a past working for the Alliance and did discover God at the bottom of a bowl of soup, but of course, it's much more complicated. It's also fascinating how Whedon (an avowed atheist) portrayed a clergyperson so sympathetically and faithfully.
I watched about 5 minutes of that, Joseph, to confirm what I had heard about Syfy movies.Confirmed.
Was reading "Your Movie Sucks" by Roger Ebert over the weekend, and The Whole Ten Yards has its own entry.
Why would he put Big Trouble in Little China in this? That was one of those 80 movies, like Rambo, that was just a white guy piling up an Asian body count. Enough already.
